The June 21 Loose Thread

Just back from a June wedding, which means I can post a favorite Ogden Nash poem:

"Here Usually Comes The Bride"

"June means weddings in everyone's lexicon,
Weddings in Swedish, weddings in Mexican
Breezes play Mendelssohn, treeses play Youmans,
Birds wed birds and humans wed humans
All year long the gentlemen woo
But the ladies dream of a June 'I do'
Ladies grow loony, and gentlemen loonier
This year's June is next year's Junior"

This is an open thread. So unveil those thoughts here.
