Poor Topaz

He's dying.  Mercedes has arrived for their courtship and honeymoon, and you'd think he has died and gone to heaven.

She isn't quite ready to make magic happen, but he sure is.  I guess that means I have to put up with his silly grin and long-suffering squeaky sighs until she feels the time is right.


Oh well there are worse things I could have to worry about.  We are very happy to have you here, Mercedes.
