can you phil the love?
every so often i check in on my hometown newspaper. i especially like to read the wedding announcements. i'm not sure why i find them so entertaining, but i do.

i'm a simple girl, what can i tell you?

anyway, every once in a while you find a real gem in there, and this is one of my favorites. the emphasis is added, but that's it...the rest is real-life, baby. really...you just can't make up stuff this good.

Philanie Jane Shafer and Ryan Michael Jiles were united in marriage October 6, 2001, at the Marlinton Presbyterian Church in Marlinton. The Rev. Randy Benson performed the ceremony.

The bride is the daughter of Phillip Shafer and Melanie Shafer, both of Marlinton. She is a graduate of Pocahontas County High School and Dabney Lancaster School of Nursing in Virginia. She is employed at a registered nurse at Plateau Medical Center in Oak Hill.

The bride was escorted by her father and given in marriage by her parents. Maid of honor was Philissa Taylor, sister of the bride. Bridesmaids were Philena Horton and Philippa Clark, sisters of the bride.

you know, i guess you really have to admire phil on a certain level. i think phil took one look at the age-old question of how does a man with no sons pass on his name and decided to think outside the box. four times.

some people just don't know when to let it go.
