    Yes, my wife has put up with me for one more year. That makes 42 years, or the equivalent of 294 human years. :grin:

    In 1971 a semi-hippie dressed in a paisley tuxedo and sporting long hair and a Fu Man Chu mustache married a fairly quiet, responsible school teacher. Most bets were that it wouldn't last a year. Who would have guessed?

    I probably am the luckiest man on the planet. :thumbsup:

    Congrats, Walt, and condolences to the lady. :D

    I can relate to the "won't last" idea. I met her in Jan, asked her in Feb, married her in March. She was 16. It was 45 years this past March, and I don't foresee an end to it.

    Maybe there's 2 luckiest men on the planet.

    Congratulations Walt & Jane on 42 years of marriage. When you find you true love wild horses can't keep you away. Know that feeling. Best of luck though suspose if you survived a paisley tuxedo your almost bulletproof lol;-)
