My Son's Engagement

As I mentioned earlier, (see here and here) my younger son, Adam Smith Palmer, was married last month. Here is a brief excerpt from his website, describing his proposal to his wife:

Adam proposed to Laura on Friday, August 13th, 2004 with an unset diamond. Laura had earlier that evening been complaining about how all her friends and colleagues were getting engaged and she wasn't. Little did she know that Adam had already planned to propose to her that night. Boy, was she embarrassed! Well, not really, 'cause Adam certainly had waited long enough. Geez.
Anyway, Laura accepted Adam's proposal with the condition that the diamond be set in a ring, and not stapled to her finger as Adam initially suggested. Adam agreed to the condition.
