    Thanks for the kind words guys. Just got back in with the better half. Went by a coffee shop we visit friday nights where we've become friends with the owner and crew to find it decked out with balloons, cards, cake and a bottle of champaign. Made the evening very special, especially for the wife. Guess there's still plenty of nice folks around!

    Again, thanks.......

    Congratulations! You could always just bring that 1911 in all wrapped up in Anniversary paper, with flowers. Think that would work? In my house it probably wouldn't.....

    Yeah, well we've sorta worked out that I don't do laundry or operate cleaning implements properly. "Hey Honey, where's the grip safety on this silly vacuum cleaner?" She worries about me sometimes. But it seems my "male" standards of cleaning just don't cut it, at least when she's feeling good!

    Hmmmm, you know I could try that but it might make 26 a little tricky.......Do our wives talk?

    It's 'cause she has gotten you a $1000 gift certificate for your local custom shop. Yeah, that's it.

    Congrats on the big nickel.

    Thinking about it, 25 is guns!

    My wife got me a flintlock rifle for our 25th, something I'd wanted since seeing Davy Crockett as a kid.

    That rifle lead to other things that now, 15 years later, she may regret some.

    Congratulations Eric! I've been married almost as long...if you count all 3 marriages. You obviously found the right one, even without the 1911!
