TULSA, Oklahoma -- The world is all a-dither, over the Royal Wedding. Billions will watch it on television. In fact if you're up early Friday morning, it will be hard to watch anything else.
So here are some basics in case you want to get in on the big party.
The royal couple has had their rehearsals. Now people from all over the world will join the locals in lining the sidewalks to get a glimpse of the happy couple before or after.
Some will have goofy hats. Some are prepared to cry their eyes out. I did when I was assigned this story.
I understand the word "obey" has been dropped from the vows. With the groom in line for becoming the King of England, how will that work?
NewsOn6.com is running an online poll to find out if people plan to take the day off or call in sick to watch. Most so know, but do we believe that?
Well, if you are taking off and don't want to party alone, Baker Street Pub is opening at 5 a.m. They will be playing along as if they are there.
"We've got the royal bunting and William and Kate flags," said Jack Jones of Baker Street Pub.
They have tiaras and a lighted archway for guests to walk through.
"We've got bubbles for everyone," Jones said. "When they're walking out of the church, instead of throwing rice we'll be blowing bubbles."
"We're giving out champagne flutes."
There will be toasts, and there's a cardboard cutout so you can get your picture taken as William and Kate. Of course, it wouldn't be a reception without a wedding singer: Laron Simpson will be doing the Beatles and more.
Bring some tissues. I always cry at weddings.
The Baker Street festivities begin about 5 a.m. The wedding singer will be there between 7 and 9 a.m.
