Default Wow! 30 years ago today!

Well fellas...30 years ago today this gal and I began our journey. OH, WHAT AN AWESOME RIDE IT HAS BEEN!
OK, I’ll preface the obvious comments I know are coming about me out-kicking my coverage, her needing her eyes checked, that poor woman, etc.
Yeah, yeah....I know I married way UP!

I’ve been lucky enough to have experienced more than my fair share of success in life but marrying this woman is by far my greatest accomplishment!! We’ve shared a ton of laughs and also many tears over these years and through it all, she is still my best friend and biggest supporter. She’s also the best wife, mother and Gigi in the world. She seldom complains about my hunting and fishing trips, the amount of money I spend on guns and puts up with my crap on an all too regular basis.
She’s aged like fine wine....just getting better over time. Me...uh, not so much. 🤫
Thank You God for bringing this woman into my life. I'll gladly take and treasure as many more years with her as You will allow.
