Dear Kristen and Joseph,
Here is a picture taken of me while I ponder if there is some way I can make it to your wedding.
Dang it, but I am in rehearsals for a play here in Los Angeles starting in May. Rats. Gotta send my regrets.
BUT, if you are in Santa Monica or Los Angeles in June, I will invite you to come see the production... Let me know if you can be my guests.
And, congratulations you kooky kids,
Naturally, Kristen got pretty excited about his response. She shared that joy on Facebook.
She said she and Joe plan to travel to go see his performance in June.
