You may agree that, in addition to cattle,
Texas breeds strong, independent people.
In spirit at least, my son - Scott - is a Texan.
As our whole family knows,
Scott is a very strong person.
An extremely independent person.
Unlike some men, Scott prefers a strong woman . . .
An independent thinker.
He prefers an intelligent,
Impassioned woman, with artistic sensibilities.
A woman who is physical and feminine;
Fun, but not frivolous fluff.
He prefers a woman of substance, with backbone . . .
A woman with a neat mind,
Who is not necessarily a hausfrau,
Or, a compulsive picker-upper.
No, he wants a woman who is creative.
One with a strong sense of curiosity,
And, a natural need to know.
A committed, true performer
Is his preferred partner.
Energetic and quick,
A high kicker who can hold her own on the stage of life.
A woman with gumption.
And a mind of her own.
A woman who can fearlessly face him -
And tell him e-x-a-c-t-l-y what she thinks.
YE-E-HAAAA! NOW, I ASK YOU:
DID MY SON KNOCK ON THE RIGHT DOOR?
You all know that Kristy Leigh is a professional dancer.
You may know she is also a gifted choreographer -
And a fine visual artist.
Some of you know that Scott also danced professionally,
And is a gifted actor, and administrator.
I predict that each of them will someday be published.
They both write extremely well.
Ladies and Gentlemen - I Propose a Toast:
May Kristy and Scott dance through life with great joy,
In a pas de deux of mutual respect,
With stupendous leaps of joy,
Tiny dips of disappointment,
And enduring love.
~ John Barricks, Father of the Groom
