A joke that is turning serious May 7, 2007

Quite a number of years ago when I was still active in amateur radio, we ran across a gentleman by the name of Chuck Hendricks, N1KRM.

Chuck was studying to become a reverend. My buddy and I are atheistic to the maximum and so we’d rib Chuck a little bit when we got the chance.

Well, we found out that the church Chuck was studying under would grant you the privileges of a reverend for a nominal fee. We both signed up, me as a Bishop, my buddy as a Reverend. Lo and behold when Chuck showed his card, it was the same as ours.

So with that in mind, I’m legally allowed to perform marriages in the U.S. it turns out that Keyron’s brother and his girl want to get married and guess who gets to officiate? Yes, me.

The coolness factor of this is extremely high. I mean, how many other people get to join together their brother-in-law and his new wife? And I could really enjoy doing marriages/unions. A fun little way to make a little extra dough, that’s for sure.

But it’s funny how life throws these little curves.
