40 years!!!
« on: May 08, 2017, 11:31:27 AM »
Forty years ago today my teen age bride and I started our lives together.  I have no words to express what our relationship has been.  The best I can do as far as words are concerned is to say this:

Sawmills, logs, lumber, and my love of sawing logs into lumber is nothing compared to you. I love you Vera.

If I don't pick myself up by my own bootstraps, nobody else will.

Darrell,

  Congratulations to both of you. Yes, it is a special day.

   That was the same day (It was Mother's Day that year BTW) that I proposed to my wife. Then 9 years ago today our second granddaughter was born. One year ago today (Also Mother's Day)our daughter gave my wife a picture of an ultra-sound as her way of telling us she was pregnant. Our grandson, a miracle baby, will be 5 months old next Sunday.

I keep coming back to the thought that this is one of the finest examples of commitment that we come across.

Congratulations! And many more.
