Well it's Friday and you know what that means? Well normally only that tomorrow is Saturday but today is a special day for Greg and Mrs. Greg as you all like to call her. Actually her name is Diane and today is our 28th Anniversary. That's a big Whoo Hoo. So this morning I went to the gym to work out and although it isn't right to brag, I just had to brag about my anniversary to one of my friends. His name is Frank and he is a preacher so I thought he would be impressed with the 28 years. He was but he informed me that he and his wife had been married for 49 years. Way to take the wind out of my sails.
So what do you get for someone who you have been married to for 28 years and already has everything? Well she has me and I consider myself a diamond (in the rough). So I started shopping around and came across a few ideas:
Chain saw.... Practical but not romantic.
Cast net.....Been there done that. (long story)
New tool set....I may be on to something here (or maybe not)
5 carrot diamond ring....What she really wants but way out of my budget at the moment (thinking about #30 though)
New wedding band for me......Eureka that's it.
Right after we got married, I was out fishing and when I went to throw the cast net, my wedding band came off and was lost. Well we bought a new one but when I wore it on the submarine I got a rash even though it was 14K Gold. The atmosphere on a submarine is conducive to getting rashes due to the heat and sanitary conditions. A congressman once told me that prisoners couldn't be subjected to living conditions like that but it was good enough for our servicemen. But I digress. Anywhoo after not wearing it for all those years, it sort of got lost.
In a recent discussion between my wife and I, she expressed that she would really like me to get a new wedding band so I have ordered one and will have it in a few weeks. I did a lot of shopping around and the prices varied drastically so I am glad I didn't just buy the first one I saw. So there you have it. I am buying a new wedding band and will wear it since it means so much to Diane. Wow this communication thing really works.
And speaking of communication and RingyDingy, it reminded me of an old skit that used to crack me up. And through the miracle of modern Internet, I was able to find it. The scary part is that it is applicable today even after 40 years. For those youngsters that have never seen this before, it is a classic, kind of like me, Haha
And have a great day,
