Its Finally Official

I am happily married. Actually, I've been happily married, but having lost 4 wedding rings in 13 years on construction sites, in buckets of mud and in the grass cleaning tools in client's garden hoses, my wife started getting suspicious. Well...one lasted quite a while and it was a 6 dollar silver band that had worn down to almost nothing and my hands have swollen so much from work I had to cut it off with some tin snips one day at work. But, I've been without a ring for almost a year now...but not any more. She bought me one for Christmas. Stainless steel with a gold band. And it fits...for now. So, yes sweetie, we are happily married. Always have been, always will. With or without a ring to prove it.

Congratulations and Many Years!

My husband lost his original wedding ring, but he's been on the replacement (10 dollars at a street air) replacement for about 10 years now.

LOL! I had a guy look at my 25 year old ATM card picture (I'll have to see if I can scan it and post it...) He said "WHO is that??" I told him that was when I was Cheech...now I'm Chong.
My mother (who is my Chinese half) hasn't seen me in a few months. She walked in the door at Christmas and said "Oh Jeez...you look like my grandfather!". So, yeah, in some parts of the world its called a beard. :)
