TINY TIM DECIDES TO ALTER MODE OF GOING TO THE ALTAR

If you thought marriage on a national television show or in a horror theme park was bizarre for Tiny Tim, he'll really shock your socks off this time.

The long-haired ukulele player with the falsetto voice is getting married in a Minneapolis church. It will be his third marriage."Marriage has always been sacred to me. I hope this one works," Tim said Thursday. "The invitation says `Lord willing' on August 18th because anything could happen."

"Just for the record, I'm not about to change my mind," his 39-year-old fiancee, Susan Marie Gardner, chimed in.

Tim, whose big hit was "Tiptoe Through the Tulips," married his first wife, Miss Vicki, on NBC's "Tonight Show" on Dec. 17, 1969.

Last Halloween, he renewed his wedding vows to second wife, Miss Jan, at a horror theme park, an event televised on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Tim, who claims to be 63, and Miss Jan were divorced in June.
