    Thought I'd post some good news...

    Thought I'd post some good news in light of all the bad luck our members seem to be having lately.

    The wife and I are celebrating our 1 year marriage anniversary this weekend!

    Even though it's been really rough financially lately we never take it out on each other and appreciate each other every day.

    She's off at a certification exam for the place we volunteer today, and I'm going to a Patriot Guard mission to honor a Vet, but tomorrow we celebrate!

    Have a great weekend friends!

    Congrats!!! Treat every day as if you are still dating. Remember the bad times should make the good times that much better. Now treat her to something extra special, if for no other reason but for putting up with you. Ha, ha, ha. Enjoy good times.

    Excellent! My young bride and I just celebrated another one, and it never gets old.

    Wish I still had a bike -- I'd love to join you in the Patriot Guards.
    Cheers,

    Thanks guys! She's great. I think we're doing a picnic in the beautiful National Forrest park on the Occoee river tomorrow if the weather hold.

    As for the Patriot Guard, if you don't mind missing the rides, you can stand color guard at events without a bike too. Especially at wakes. Just a thought!

    Ok, off to the mission to honor a Korean War vet.

    Wow. She is still putting up with you after a year???? You must have sent her to wife school.

    Congrats. There is nothing like having a good woman at your side during the good times and bad.

    Happy Anniversary!

    You are right. There is too much negative in the world for us to forget the small joys and big events in our lives. I try to find joy everyday, no matter how bad that day has been.

    Congratulations and I hope you see many more years together.

    my wife is my world and my life now, everything else in my life collectively makes up the "little things", my wife is all that really truly matters to me, or maybe I could put it this way....she is the only thing that I do not want to live without, all else I can let go of. We're going on 13 years...the best 12.5 years of my life so far. Congrats Arko.....live it up friend.

    We're about to hit 8. Mrs GB got a 42 year old confirmed bachelor to change his ways. That should tell you something about her.
