Thanks fellows….didn’t know if this thread was even going to go through. I tried 3 times to post it, and it kept rolling the green flag, and finally gave up the ghost and died….went white page on me. Finally made it..

Keep chugging Lance….you’ll get there….I may be dead when you do, so I may not be able to post a reply.

Way to go Rick. You obviously picked a winner, although her choice might be questionable. (just kidding of course)

Hope to see 34 more years now!

Thanks again, guys…..I plan to take my bride to eat supper tonight. We quit long ago buying wedding gifts for each other…..now we just settle for a meal, a movie, and a warm woobie…..and the wedding pics have been tucked away for years…We don’t want to be looking at “what was”, and “what is now”....no comparision….too much fat, and too many wrinkles…...:)).

Still more thanks fellows, and MsDebbie. Our plans may be twarted tonight, as it’s turning cold and rainy. My wife is trying to come down with her allergies, so it’s hit or miss. Doesn’t bother us though…we can celebrate anytime we want to…..when you’ve been married this long, you don’t have to get in any hurry to do things….:)

Thanks GMman, Joe, and Lee,

Well…just as I expected…..it was raining pretty good when my wife got in tonight. She came in from work all croopy and coughing…So we decided to pack it in for the night. I fixed supper for us and dessert, washed her shampoo towels (quite a butt load), wahed the dishes, and then made her a “hot toddy” before bedtime, and now she’s gone to bed…feeling really bad (at 9:30), so here I sit, writing this all alone….lol. That toddy should make her sleep like a lamb…..:) Just hopes she feels better tomorrow…....Thanks again, guys…...

WOW…...GMman and Lee: You guys have been at this a long time….I’ll make it pretty soon…..:)

Congrats Rick. Hope you get another 34 too! Your story brings back a few memories. 41 years ago the farmer’s son moved to town. Standing room only in the church with a reception to folllow. My daddy in law had enough booze left over for my brother in law’s wedding a couiple months later! I got a lucky break, only one of us 3 kids still married.

I don’t trust weathermen….I just look out the window to see what’s it’s doing…: I think all weathermen needs a window in their office…..

Little early for a toddy…..I’m still working on a pot of coffee, and gonna make another one in a short…..

After the drought we have been through, it’s nice to see the rain – even when it’s too late coming. Luckily I had a cord of seasoned oak delivered on Friday and I have just started on it.
I’m on my second pot of coffee too and about to make breakfast for us; Eggs, sausage, hash browns, biscuits and gravy – what a way to start a rainy day.

Stay safe and warm.

It stsrted raining before I was able to put up any firewood, so mine’s all wet now…I have about 3+ cord left out of about 10 cord I had…. that’ll see me through this winter and next too….once it dries….:)

Thanks Charlie…what can I say….she’s had me this long and no complaints…right?

Hi ya David,

Thanks for the weathewr report….BBUUURRR, that’s cold now…I woke up to 29 here in the hills, and lots of rain….Started raining her Sat. and quit this morning, then started snowing, and we’ve got about 1 1/2” so far…..tapered off a little, then started again…..big flakes…..pretty. I was too late getting the wood put up before the rain hit…now it’s wet, and snow piled on it….Have to wait til it dries out to move it inside…..keep me posted on the weather out your way….. By the way: How far are you from the Texas border, say towards Lubbock, or Amarillo? Are you close to Portales?

that sounds like ’stuffed bull’
on the wall to me rick
when she wakes and reads this post

i’m 50 miles from the colo border
across the gorge (rio grande) from taos
portales is in the middle of the state

all my wood is still out under snow now too
same deal here
wait till it dries some
then at least put it on the porch
then into the firewood closet
right next to the stove
i can load from the porch
then retrieve from inside
