Ralphie’s Wedding

If the name Ralphie does not ring a bell from your memory of movie characters, it probably means that you are under the age of 50. Ralphie was the charismatic kid in the movie, “A Christmas Story.” When the movie came out, my two boys were very young, and the younger one, Todd, looked very much like Ralphie. Our family thoroughly enjoyed the movie and the resemblance of the movie character to our own family member. When my daughter married and moved to Little Torch in the Florida Keys, she began searching for friends and met a lady who lived nearby. As they began to get to know each other, she learned that this lady was the mother of Peter Billingsley, the actor who played Ralphie. When Peter came to visit his mother, Robin was introduced to him and began to correspond with him. I recently received an e-mail from my daughter telling me that she and her family were flying to California for a wedding. She had received a wedding invitation from “Ralphie.” Here is a picture of “Ralphie” and the adult Peter Billingsley.
