A Biker ceremony: The stage in front of the church was decorated with hay bales and saddles. The groom had on his best country-western outfit, cowboy hat included.

Heart-to-Heart with an Atheist – When she asked me what I did, I said I was retired from being a petroleum engineer who studied fracking for 25 years.
