    Right behind you with 36 years and I never have to say a word... my bride knows where I want to sit and will even ask for a different table when she sees the one offered isn't right!

    ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!

    My wife (who has carried since 2000) used to get mad at me in restaurants, since instead of me looking at her while we were talking, I was constantly looking around. At first she thought I was looking at other women.....Then after she started carrying & became more aware of her surroundings, she started doing the same. Now there's two of us with our heads on a swivel.

    I still get a chuckle out of her when she sees ple, she'll shake her head & say something about them being in 'White'.

    I think that her learning about the 'Conditions', really brought home the mind set of being aware of what's going on around her & now she notices others who do & don't (the majority) pay attention.

    Anybody who knows me knows where Im sitting in any public place. My dad calls it Wild Bill syndrome.

    I guess the story is that the one time Wild Bill Hickock sat with his back to a door, he got shot in the back.
    I have one friend who carries who is equally as adamant.
    We probably looked silly sitting on the same side of the table for lunch a few times.
    Stories like yours give me hope though.
