Bull,

You are now authorized to change the brass ring in your nose for a gold one!  ;D

Congratualtions.  I'm just coming up on my 25th, so I have a long way to go yet.

Congratulations to you both.

If there was ever a task that deserved a Medal that sure is it, for both parites, you for having to put up with her, and her for not killing you, ha ha.  ;D Hopefully you'll have many more happy years.

You know Bull, by calling it "hazardous duty" it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.  :o ::)

Thanks fellows for the fine thoughts and wishes. My wife is the love of my life and truly deserves a medal!!

US Scout - You are about to be promoted from the brass ring to the silver one. Wearing the ring isn't so bad but when they yank on it it sure gets one's attention!! :o

Texas Lawdog - She surly deserves a medal for putting up with me.  The first 35 are the hardest. :D

Zouave Officer - She is a good shot but with a head start I can still out run her. :)

Mustang Gregg - TDYs are good. Keeping the "job jar" empty helps.

Pitspitr - A self fulfilling prophecy? I showed her this thread and she is smiling. Is this a good sign?? :-\

Bull,

You'll recall I met your missus some years back. All I'm going to say is that you're a very lucky man!  If I was you, I'd keep her for at least another 50 years.

Bull,

She might, then again she might not.

Well, Congratulations, Col. Bull, Sir!  To you and your Bride!

I've been married since 1971, but only the last 20 years to the RIGHT woman!

My wife is my best friend - and possibly worst enemy - if you know what I mean!  ;)

Having spent a lot of years married to her and in uniform, it takes a special lady - and mine is.  Sounds like yours is, too.  (In my case I think it helped that she had worn a uniform too - just not the same ans mine.  She was in the WRAC -Women's Royal Army Corps.  But as you can imagine, there are plenty of similarities from one Military to another!!)


Here's hoping for ANOTHER 50 for you and your "better half'!

Sincerely,

Jeff  "Steel Horse Bailey"
