A bit late on this one, but a heartfelt congratulations to Guy Endore-Kaiser who popped the question to his girlfriend Renee Robichaux in the November 13th Brevity.
From a News-Press article:
“We’ve been together almost five years and I’ve been doing the strip for about five years. I didn’t know the particulars of where to do (propose) until recently, but I probably decided about two years ago that this would be the way to do it,” he said.
“We like Santa Barbara and Bacara’s there, so I decided that would be a good place to go for the weekend.”
To Ms. Robichaux, the getaway was supposedly made possible by friends in the product placement business who invited the comics man and his lawyer girlfriend along after receiving two free rooms in exchange for getting Bacara into a movie.
At the last minute, so the yarn goes, the other couple would have to back out, leaving Mr. Endore-Kaiser and Ms. Robichaux on their own.
When Saturday morning rolled around, a newspaper would be delivered with breakfast and, as she always does, Ms. Robichaux would read her beau’s strip.
That’s when Mr. Endore-Kaiser would make his move.
“I’ll be in a bathrobe and come out of the bathroom with the ring,” Mr. Endore-Kaiser said, envisioning how it would play out. “It should mirror the strip pretty exactly.”
By the way, Renee said yes.
Brevity is the brain child of Guy and Rodd Perry (the artist of the two).
