Sad to see Shriver’s separation

May 10th, 2011 1 comment

I was sad to see this morning that Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger has separated after 25 years of marriage, especially since I was at the wedding on that beautiful spring weekend in 1986 on Cape Cod.

Well, sort of.

I was in Cape Cod as a 19-year-old college student in Massachusetts for the summer.

And I was there to see all the guests and happy couple as they were seen for the first time as husband and wife.

Yep, that was me, sitting on the curb across the street eating chinese food with a few other friends watching the festivities.

You see, I was working at a resort on Cape Cod and most all of the streets had been shut down for the wedding, effectively shutting down the resort for a couple of hours.

So, what better to do than take the back way to pick up Chinese and relax and watch the show.

It was impressive to be able to watch an event like that unfold as the Kennedy family is the closest thing to royalty that we have in the US and that wedding was likely as close as we will have to the Royal Wedding.

So, I have always kept an ear up through the years to hear how they are doing.

They are both successful people and they will be fine, but it’s one of those stories that just won’t be the same for me to tell anymore.
