Ditto MDinana, congratulations.

We bought ourselves a new furnace and a new mattress for Christmas this year, and love them both. Otherwise I had to help a brother and a sister through some harder times, and we took a healthy whack at buying for foster kids from the Giving Tree, though I wish we could have done more there. There's no end of foster kids, and all they want is one gift. Equipped? I have a loving wife, good above average kids, a warm home and warm bed. Last year's kit will do.

Congratulations MD!

Congratulations Sir!

Now, remember to write dowm where and when it happened, what she was wearing, etc. You'll find that information extremely valuable someday. You can't imagine how many kudos you earn when on some future anniversary of that momentus time in your life you tell her how lovely she looked in that blue dress.

Works for me still, and we're coming up on the 42nd anniversary of our first date.

All blessing to you and yours!

In a crisis one does not rise to one's level of expectations but rather falls to one's level of training.

Congrats, and I believe that wins as far as best loot goes, too.

Got a Cabelas cast iron jerky slicer, few camping items, redhead socks and will be picking up either a excaliber dehydrator or hopefully something comparable but with more trays in the next week or 2 (pretty much after I decide)

Got the stainless steel Fenix LD01 flashlight. 80 lumens from a 1xAAA light. It's replacing the Arc AAA-P on my keychain and the Fenix LD10 (1xAA) that I carry a lot of times because the Arc isn't bright enough for some situations.

Still hoping Santa brings a few days of outdoor vacation time.

Congrats... Love the date, you'll never forget!

I've been married 3 years, got engaged a 9 months before that and to this day I can't tell you which day or month it was. Though I can tell you how I proposed!

Andy has some good advice, write down everything about the event. You'll never know when that info comes in handy!

Congratulations MDinana, welcome to the team; "Were all in this together" (Red Green).

The other fellows are correct, I still score points with my wife and her friends/family when I casually refer to June 20th, 1984 at 10.30 pm as the "best moment in my life"; this was the moment we met.
