Jan and Sheridan get hitched
Jan, my distant cousin from England, vacationed in Florida last week with Sheridan, her companion of 22 years. They got married at Sarasota County Courthouse. I assume the contract is binding in Great Britain. These impulsive, romantic lovers! They kept the plan secret even from their kids, who were with them. From the Sarasota website BarefootWeddings.com:
Obtaining a Florida marriage license has never been this easy, just read the following and you will be on your way.They celebrated with Tommy Bahama's Coconut Shrimp, described 0n the menu as "crispy coconut encrusted jumbo shrimp served with papaya-mango chutney and Asian slaw." The Crab Calloway sounds great, too. Jan didn't report on what or how much they drank. Hopefully, many appropriately tropical cocktail toasts; Sheridan is reputedly excellent at delivering them. I'm delighted for the happy couple. The bride was beautiful. The only disappointment is that the groom didn't wear a coral guayabera for the occasion.
The Sarasota County Clerk of the Circuit Court does not accept credit cards or personal checks. Identification with a photograph (i.e. driver's license or passport) and your Social Security card is required, as well as the date any previous marriages ended.
