    Ray, you are a lucky man, and I'm sure there are many female members who are equally lucky. This is why I don't gamble. I'm not so lucky.

    I keep telling myself these truths....over and over and over and over and over and over and over. I could go on but it would be repetitive.

    My husband and I are having our 25th anniversary on Monday. The card I got him says on the Front, "If I hadn't met you..." and on the inside it says, "I would be driving someone else nuts". Truer words were never spoken.:)

    Although matrimony is filled with risks and pitfalls, there are some people you meet in life you just know you will never get over. The ebb and flow of life's circumstances and each other's emotions is the spice that gives it flavor and makes it satisfying.

    Like a precious stone, a good woman is hard to find.

    If you've ever been married, you've no doubt experienced hallway s&x....

    That's when you're ticked off and avoiding each other, but have to pass near one another in the hall....

    Screw you!
    Screw you too!

    Hello Ray,

    Nice comments about your wife.

    Most of the quotes are from comedians, so hence the irreverence.

    I have found that when I am in or bordering on a disagreement with my wife that If I just step back and asked " Honey, are just talking to here yourself talk or do you really want me to reply to that?" Usually that gets a count of ten for both of us. works for me/us.

    Still, a little irreverence without being unduly mean can be ok when the verbal tone rises to unacceptable, don't you think?

    When I first became an appraiser, being a city kid ,I used to wonder why pole barns are built so far from the house. Then as I became older with my own hobbies and in the interest of peace I discovered why, (I mean other then livestock). I actually give more value for pole barns then most appraisers in the area.
