17 Yrs and Counting
« on: August 05, 2016, 04:57:14 PM »
We're packing our bags for an anniversary trip   ;D  and I couldn't be happier! She is the best thing that ever happened to me. I can't imagine life without her.


Everything else is going good; wifes career is doing great, son has been sober for about 4 yrs and doing good.
I'm retired now so no complaints from me.
Life ain't nothing but a poker game
And no two hands are quite the same
But I've never seen a winner that didn't bet

If that's 17 years of marriage, then congrats are in order...

Well done...

Late 90s - an early pioneer!

Congrats to both.  :nod:
Gordon Gekko: "The point is, ladies and gentleman, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA."

My first trip over was in '97. That's when communication was snail mail and the turnaround on letters was near a month. Trying to improve this I bought my wife a fax machine. Computer? What's that?
