  • 43 years ago

    Hi gang.
    I'd like to brag a bit about my good wife.
    I met her when I was in the Air Force serving in Japan on the island of Okinawa. She was working in a restaurant I frequented and I would visit with her there. After a few months I asked her out. On that first date I proposed marriage and she accepted.
    We have three children, each one more wonderful than the other two.
    She is the best friend I have.
    I don't want to get carried away here so I will just say it has been an adventure for 43 years and the saga continues.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

    OH, I forgot to add that I am thinking of buying her that new router I have been wanting.

      Congratulations and best wishes for many more years of wedded bliss and adventure. Sounds like it might get a bit more adventurous if you give her the router.

        Happy for both of you Stephen. My wife and I are re-newing our vow's on the 16th of this month....plus my wife is turning 60 as well. The wife has been so busy getting everything just right around here....we are doing this big party here at our place. Invited about 125 people, but I doubt there will be that many show up. We have a band and tons of food...BYOB and you will be ready. I just wish one of our 5 grown kids could make it...

          Soooo, you are a little slow to get started, but once you set a course, it's full speed ahead, huh?

          Congratulations! For the good decision 43 years ago and for sticking with it.

            Congrat's Stephen ! I only hope after all those wonderful years, you don't ruin it with a Router for yourself, HA I'm assuming it is for you? Don't take me serious. Have a wonderful Anniversary.

                          Thanks heaps for the fun replies.
                          I think hanging on during the lean years has made the retirement sooo much better. With our pensions, ss and part time work we are doing really better than we did when working. Can't figure it out, unless we did crappy when working.

                                Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                                I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                                For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                                The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                                Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                                So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.

                                Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
