You have a very "textual" family. Which one are you, the "4," the "0," or the "3?"
Edited link. <whap> :D

(edit: I guess I would be the 0, considering I originally linked to a non-linkable source :confused: )

I was selling lawn & garden equipment at a local county fair and she was crown the beauty queen the day before. I missed that part of the fair. She & I met while she was doing her rounds to meet all the vendors. I fell for her right off the bat and by the end of the day I mustard enough courage for her to ask me out. :eek:

Nitemare,

It's not easy for her.

I'd consider moving to Australia temporarily (even permanently) but first we have to wait for US immigration to finalize her permanent residency.

Then if I can find a job in Sydney or Brisbane and we can find housing, we're moving :)

There would be no hot deals in Australia.

Except for maybe 2 pairs of socks for $4 AUD at the Big W (their Walmart).

we have a difference of opinion..

he says.. in the parking lot outside our apartment building. I was flying a kite. ok, perhaps "kite" is a bit generous.. I made it myself. "flying" is for sure a bit generous. I don't think that counts, because.. he laughed at me!

I say.. couple weeks later I was sittin' on the cemetary wall (toms creek road, blacksburg) watchin' the world go by and hopin' it'd bring somethin' interesting along with it and.. it did.

either way, spring, 1976.. been married 25 years in october.
