No, this is not an offshoot of the previous "Anniversary" thread. Today is my actual anniversary anniversary. 18 years ago today, the men cheered and the women cried for the world had lost a single, woman-getting, cassanova-type, man.

...and I got married that day as well...

Technically, I call it my wife's anniversary since it's mainly all about making her day (you'll understand, those of you not already here, once you get this far!) She got flowers, a gift certificate to a clothing place around here, an MP3 player (previous one was stolen from my oldest daughter) and I took her out for supper at a fancy steak place here in town. I also cleaned the house, did the dishes and the laundry, so she basically had the weekend off...

I did, however, get a cool RC airplane! I can't wait for the wind to stop sweeping down the plains so I can go out and fly it...

Anyway, just thought I'd share my happy news with you fellers. Now, I'm going to pop the cap off this beer and have myself a good cry - I mean reflect upon the past 18 years!

Thanks, guys! While I joke about it, I really am proud of us and glad we've stuck with it this long. Not bad for only dating 3 months...but then, my in-laws dated 2 weeks before they got married and we just celebrated their 50th a couple weeks ago.

Hey! Congrats on the 6 months, Iron...

Mudster - I'll get some pics tomorrow (if I remember, that is.) It's not a high dollar one, in fact, it's probably just a starter plane. Nothing fancy. BUT, I've never flown one before, so it's going to be fun. It's and Estes brand (the rocket guys).

I like being married because I get all the toys I never got when I was a kid, lol!

Happy anniversary. I got both a plane and a helicopter. The choppers busted right now, as I tried to land on a ping pong table and came down too early. Blades + table = :(

Thanks again! I can't go play with the plane today because it rained all morning, and now the wind is blowing like crazy again. Being in Oklahoma, this may not have been such a great idea....

Hahaha! I thought about that - wish I could find a place like that big enough around here. I tried in the house, but I scared the dog and made my wife a bit upset, so I had to stop...

you've been married for 18 years and you dive-bombing the family pet and doing fly-bys at the wife while the pattern is full and she only gets a bit upset?

You get the Maverick thumbs-up!

No, getting married solves the problem of getting all dressed up, finding the happening place just at the peak and getting turned down by strange women who you'd never talk to without a bunch of drinks in you. Once you're married, all you have to do is roll over to get turned down. Saves lots of time for other hobbies.

AMEN! You don't know how much work all that dating stuff is until you've been married a few years - usually rolling over to get turned down is a bit more work than it's worth, SOMETIMES! :p

Yeah, baby! I almost thought it was tax season again...or she wanted something more expensive!

You forgot:

10 points for getting kids riled up and making mom yell at them
50 points for breaking something expensive and successfully hiding it until I can replace it! :( :D
