The Mystery Deepens.






Where did you come from?

Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave When We search for the correct wedding.

Age has attacked Uncle Bill's memory. First he thought it was from a Callaghan wedding. Wrong! Then he thought it was from a McCauley wedding. Wrong! Then he thought it was from the wedding of Danelle and Richie Sefner daughter. Wrong! I think Joyce and Helen may remember the Sefner's. they had three daughters, the youngest thought she was boy for the longest time. I believe she used to be a correction officer at Harry's prison. Richie was from Mount Vernon and Danelle was from New Rochelle. Then he thought it was from his friend Billy Lowe's wedding. Wrong! I told him Billy wasn't part of the trailer park crowd at that time. Then he thought it may be from his cousin Maureen's wedding. Wrong!
This is when I became exhausted from trying to decipher the memories coming from a seventy year old mind. So I went back out to the garage and contemplated drinking the twenty one year old bottle of champagne and putting it out of its misery. But, then I notice along with the date the bottle has two names attached to it. The names are Margie and Peter. Could this bottle possible be from a Finley wedding? My father thinks it may be. But, he also says his cousin Peter got remarried during the eighties. But, he says, he doesn't think Peter's wife name is Margie. Mulligan, we need your help.

good grief!!first of all that looks like a normal size bottle, not expencive stuff, i know because i got that same thing when i closed on my house back in 92 from the builder, but to give as a favor at a wedding? that could add up, so think about it you had an over the top wedding and we didn't walk away with a bottle? so i think you should drink it i could help you you know we could of had a glass on turkey day, because uncle jimmy didn't bring any and we just start the gussing all over again!! hehehe. So please can someone out there HELP solve this bottle mystery!!!!!im getting thirsty thinking about i think it sat long enough!!!LOL

its only 8 or 10 ounces. the beer bottles are there to provide scale. they are not there as a subliminal messages for our beer drinking relatives. although, dogfish head's ninety minute IPA is a tasty potent brew. it has 9% alcohol and 294 calories. old rasputin is also over 9%. its a stoudt, and a damn good one.

it has to be a friend's wedding or neighbor that your Dad isn't remembering

anyway just pop the cork & enjoy it...that's what I'd do!!

To be confirmed later, but, Gwyneth and I believe this champagne may be from the wedding of Margie Finlay (Jane's brother Tommy's daughter) and Peter Bergamini, which was in 1987 at Lake Isle in Eastchester, NY. Now how it could have gotten into Uncle Bill's hands, I have no idea.

Hey john, i also think its from your cousin wedding. i was thinking, perhaps "you" confiscated some of those commemorative bottles to drink with kyle and chris and the crew from wood ridge? and then, somehow i think, this poor lonely bottle got lost in uncle bill's trailer.
