  • Whew, I made it.

    Just a little while ago I was scrolling thru FB and there were a BUNCH of folks saying how they appreciated their spouse and how many years they have been married.
    YIKES!!!! Our wedding anniversary is this month!!!
    I went to the living room and gave my wonderful wife a kiss and said, "happy anniversary".
    She said, "It's the 14th".
    "Oh, well I'm not late huh", was my reply.

    Cripes, that could have gone so wrong.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

              Actually, In Japan where my wife is from, wedding anniversarys aren't celebrated like here. We have missed it so many times. When the kids were small we would have a "family birthday" in June to celebrate the beginning of our family. My way of remembering.
              We forgot our birthdays a lot of times too. Not a big deal when you are trying to provide for the kids and pay the bills. We, like a lot of folks, had some real lean years in the 80s. Carternomics.

                42 years here. I remember each time but get this. As a naive young person, for our first anniversary, I thought this is OUR anniversary, so I should get US a gift for OUR new apartment. Soooooo, I went out and bought US a gift for the apartment. Fast forward to that night when my mom called to wish us well, so says to my DW, "What did Stephen get you?" Wife broke down crying saying: "a vacuum!"

                I learned this was wrong, and have never repeated the error, though I don't honestly understand what was wrong with my logic.

                  42 year for us this month.

                  Never buy a woman a gift that has an AC cord attached to it.

                    My wife is the one who can't remember the date. When I tell her and how many years, the response is always the same,"seems longer than that". I think she is telling me something.

                      Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                      Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
