30 years and a couple of hours ago.....
« on: August 16, 2009, 08:53:12 PM »
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Congratulations. That is wonderful.

I had that fantasy of getting married and living happily ever after.  Then thirty years ago I was already in my second marriage. I am now comfortably in the third and hope it will stay together.

Hope you have many more happy years together.

Congrats..... 41 years ago last March, I did the same. Dang, it's hard to get out once you get in, isn't it?

Like G3 said, get out of that house and go party.

thanks to all.  jimmy, we both were 3rd class when we met.  i was a 1st up for chief when i got out. he's now a captain.  30 years makes a big paycheck difference  :-)

won't hold that airdale stuff against you.   :evil:  i went green with the Marines.

that's what i did.  they started to let a few women do it, and i was looking for adventure :-).  i guess laying face down in the mud with a gunny standing on your head yelling at you is kind of an adventure..............

guess there are lots of female FMF corpsman now.

There was certainly nothing wrong with the bride-grooms eyesight Kathy and by his looks you did a bit of cradle snatching.
 Anyway congratulations on making 30 years.

he's a good guy.  works hard and has always taken great care of us.

our day was exciting!  he worked on plumbing at the rental house.  i did gardening, laundry, and cleaned the battery cables on the truck so we could replace the batteries. we had not done that in 13 years!! 
i love watching baking soda fizz.  :-D

the only thing more exciting than our place might be watching paint dry, or grass grow  :evil:

thank you all for the good wishes.  we have been blessed!
