41st Anniversary.

Recommended Posts

I wasn't going to say anything but some consider 41 years together a mile mark.  So yes, Today marks Debbie & my  41st wedding Anniversary. We plan on ordering a steak dinner out and bringing it home due to the covid numbers so high here. The Outback isn't far from our home and they bring it to the car.  Sundance also turns 8 years old today. I used to show Doberman Pinschers and thats how Deb & I met, through the dog shows. Sundance is from Georgia and was born on our Anniversary and was supposed to be flown to our house on Valentines Day, so Debbie said, "Oh Butch, We Have To Get This One." Then she named him Sundance because I'm Butch.  The brains of the outfit, Haha.  I told her on one condition!  She make a sign for my art room / Guitar room, that says:

The Hole In The Wall Gang.  Yep, Thats our hangout.  Art table, 9 guitars and 8 guns.  I keep them up here so they don't tarnish in the gun safe being they are nickel  plated.

Congrats to you and your wife - a great milestone.  I think a nice steak dinner is a great way to celebrate - hope it comes with a guitar. 🙂

Congrats to you both also RCT, I've noticed there are many on the Gibson forums with long marriages. The day I retired I was so happy but then thought, 60  years of my life is gone now, Wow. And that was 7 years ago.  Where does it go?

Thanks Karloff, Kelly, Hall,JDM, and Tx Ogre for the congrats & wishes.  Best 8 oz. Fillet steak I had.  I could cut it with a fork. Also wish everyone here best of health and good times not getting that Covid.

WOW!  Congratulations!

How do you do it?   That's a hell of a long time.

 

Do you want the truth? Haha.  Well, before we married, Deb had 2nd thoughts.  She told me, it had nothing to do with me, She thought I would get tired of her and divorce her.  So I told her to make up your mind now this day because there will be No Divorce! Then I told her, If you try a divorce after we're married, Then I will Have To Shoot You!  To that she was shocked and she had her mouth open like a fish cod and both eyes bugged out.  I was laughing, and told her.  "Won't The Pastor Say during Our Marriage Vows,  'Till Death Do You Part?" Haha.

Actually she tells me I make her laugh every single day and she loves it.  So I guess humor is the secret.  Thanks Steve.
