      Yes, that's my greenfro, a very popular hair style in 1972. My real one wasn't much smaller.

      Guess the car.

      For the first day or two maybe...but they go blue for about a year then change to their permanent colour...Babies definitely do not have steel gray eyes for a year...

      Mercury Marquis witha 460. Almost ended the marriage before it started. Never buy a car that's had a dash fire.

      Together 10 years, married 1.

      When she said yes at Bridal Veil falls (5 years ago...yes it took us 4 years to finally have the wedding)


      The wedding at the Portland Chinese Gardens. It's pretty cool our daughter was able to be a part of the wedding, she was the ring bearer. (I hate this pic of me but...whateva...)


      And the honeymoon on Kona...

      I'll join Barry as a senior member in the wedding dept (kinda)....Married in 1999 (together since 1995), to a girl I still look at every day and say: "I'm so lucky".

      We both started young, with no money. I think that can be the best way, sometimes. We grew and built up our lives together...Now we have this little ham, and another on the way.

      Still got you beat.

      We both started young, with no money. I think that can be the best way, sometimes. We grew and built up our lives together....
      Absolutely. We had 4 empty rooms in our house for years before we finally got some furniture. We didn't have dining room or living room furniture for 2 years. Damn near everything we have, we got together.

      Now we have this little ham, and another on the way.

      I was married 23 years before you got married. She's still my best friend.

      It doesn't hurt that she's a car nut, too.

      I've been married 10 years. My married life has been characterized by disaster, sickness, brokedness and a million other things. I still love my wife and somehow she still loves me.

    29. 10-31-2011 04:05 PM #64
      20 years ...the last 10 married. We share the "from the old country" upbringing. Her parents are Dutch immigrants and I immigrated from Krautland. If you read between the lines: We are both pig-headed as **** and our sons did not fall far from the tree. It's hard to make time for each other with the two boys around, but we book a weekly date night.

      I still feel blessed & wouldn't change a thing.

      We just went through a year of hell while my wife fought and beat 3C ovarian cancer. Through the ups and downs of our marriage the 17 days she spent in the hospital was the worst period of our lives together. However, it reaffirmed our relationship in a way that regular time spent together can't. It taught me that I can, and will, step up when necessary. That has made me feel really good about myself.

      Many young unmarried people complain that they don't want to get into routines, but try being without them for a long period of time. You will welcome them back. We're not religious people, at all, but we do count our blessings.

      An inspiration, Barry, for those of us that hope to make it together as long as you two have. I lost my mom in 2005, breast cancer. She was too young (57), and she missed out on being a grandmother. I still miss her dearly.

      It made me cherish my wife even more, and gives me a deep appreciation of what we have.
