Turning 40—My Excellent Wife Wearing Wedding Dress And Holding Bowling Ball

This is the final part of the Texas Liberal series I’ve called Turning 40. 

The best day of my life was March 25, 2000. This was the day I got hitched in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We were married at the Excalibur Hotel and Casino by a man in a purple robe. I believe he was intended to appear as some sort of medieval wizard as that would have been consistent with the theme of the hotel. We had around 50 guests.

The reception was held at the Orleans Hotel. Instead of dancing we had bowling. Please see above the picture of my beautiful wife in her wedding dress, showing off a bowling shoe and holding a bowling ball. 

My wife is my best friend and is the best person in the world.

  1. I really like the way that you write about your wife. She is lucky to have someone who cares so deeply about her. I guess some girls really can have it all.

  3. As a guest at the aforementioned nuptials and tenpin reception, I can say it was one of the most memorable weddings I’ve ever attended. Then again, I grew up in a state where bowling is almost as popular as cheese and brats (On, Wisconsin!).
