A Cloud of Witnesses

I had the great fun of participating in a wedding this morning on top of Roan Mountain. You never know if it will be clear or cloudy until you get there. Today on the high bluff we were surrounded by a great cloud. It was like being married in heaven. Pictured below from left to right are me, Bev (a member of our church and a friend who works with the groom), the happy couple, Michael and Susan, Susan's son, Nick, and in front, Woodrow.

Here are Michael and Susan "walking down the aisle" which happens to be a half-mile walk from the parking lot to Roan High Bluff.

The kiss in the fog...

This was a blog wedding in that Michael has been reading Shuck and Jive for several years and when looking for a preacher for the nuptials decided I might be irreverent enough for the job.

Congratulations, Michael and Susan! It was an honor!


  1. So glad, and not even a little surprised that Woodrow was part of the wedding party!

    Congratulations, Mike! We need to get together, soon.!

  2. Hey Snad,
    Good to here from you!We hope to be having a big whing ding on 6-26. Don't have the details ironed out yet but will let you know. It'll be similiar to the one you came to before, just celebrating a marriage instead!

  3. Dang! We have tickets to see Robin and Linda Williams in Mountain City, although, if it IS like the last one, it will still be going on long after R&L are hoarse.

    Congratulations again, and a much happiness to you both!

  4. It's the 26th for sure. Got the main guitar picker lined up tonight. It will be going on till the wee hours. i was hoping you could let John follow you over!

  5. He's got GPS. He'll manage! Who'd you pick to pick?

  6. Gary Rosenbaum Bill Westfall and Paul Brummitt. All three very different. Need to get your email.
