  1. Congrats dude!

    Your wife doesn’t look nerdy at all in the pic-quite a pretty bride man!

    All you needed to do for this pic was get contacts and spend $50 on a good haircut…

  2. Mazel tov, Harold.

    You look positively Grouchoesque in the picture. Good job.

    1. It is possible that the nerd/Groucho motif was related to my picture selection for this post…..

  3. Wow, way to hit out of your league! Well done, congratulations, and best wishes for many, many more.

  4. Congratulations from one who knew you before this picture was taken.

  5. I am sorry, I just can’t help it.

    First thought that popped into my head: A cross between Bill Gates and Prof. Irwin Corey.
    (I mean you, Harold; your wife, what a doll!)
