Lights, camera -- and Michael Roberts' 1982 wedding proposal: a slideshow

Tonight at 8:30 p.m. Denver time, my wife Deb and I are having an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas renew our wedding vows on the occasion of our 25th anniversary; access this page on the VivaLasVegasWeddings.com site and click on the "Main Chapel" icon to view a live webcast at that time. But this is hardly the first time I've dragged Deb before a camera for betrothal-related hijinks. In fact, I blindsided her with a wedding proposal in December 1982, during a visit to a photography studio in Grand Junction. To see a slideshow featuring more shocked reaction shots, which are even funnier today than were back then, click here.
