Yep…..34 years ago today I married a farmers daughter (ok….I can hear you snickering).. We had a “bluegrass wedding.” Lots of friends and pickers showed up. We had the wedding in an old school house, which was turned into a community building in Ropesville, Texas, close to Lubbock, Texas (for all you West Texas LJs). Followed by a small reception, and good bluegrass pickin’. We had 3-4 bands playing, plus our family band…Folks couldn’t understand why me and my wife were the last to leave….We said “Shoot…we want to stay and pick” And we’re still pickin’ together after all these years…Hope we make another 34….the pickin’s got a little harder to do with age and arthritis, but we still manage to “belt one out”......

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… 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” 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….:)
