2015 Photo-Some-Days 5.18.2015

I love weddings. They are one of the happiest occasions we as humans celebrate. My niece was married in Georgetown, TX this past weekend. During the photo session after the ceremony, I handed my iPhone to one of the groomsmen and asked him to take a photo of our family with the bride & groom. As we were being positioned by the photographer, he snapped this candid with a very nice “Hook ’em Horns” in the foreground. I really like this shot, as it takes me back 20 or so years to the time in my life when I served as a groomsmen in several weddings. This is something I would have done had the uncle of the bride asked me to snap a pic on his cell phone. It brought a smile to my face when I first discovered it in my camera roll late last night. To the anonymous groomsman I say, “well played, sir!”

Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. ~ Genesis 2:22-24

Having been a Texas Longhorn fan for most of my life, standing here with my son as a prospective Oklahoma University student feels a bit odd, like I’ve snuck behind enemy lines. I suppose the only thing that would have made this moment sweeter would have been me, clad in burnt orange, with my hand raised in a defiant “Hook ‘Em” as I belted out “The Eyes of Texas” at the top of my lungs. Thankfully, I’m not that dumb. What will it be like if he chooses to attend OU? Can I muster a “Boomer Sooner” from somewhere in these stands? Truth is, OU is a great school, and if my son chooses to enroll here, he will do so with my blessing. Now, “Boomer Sooner” – that will take some work.
