Congratulations Mark. That's a keeper for sure.

"Bill"
She sure is. She makes sure I get time to work in my shop and if I need a tool or a machine, she tells me to go buy it. I wish I could afford to buy everything she tells me to get. I took her to harbor freight with me to get a few drill bits and she keeps throwing tools in my cart and says "you need this". It cost me over a hundred dollars to get out of there.( She doesn't know a screwdriver from a hammer).

You know I believe all guys have their brain in the wrong head. At our age that is almost the last thing I think about. It is nice to just have the companionship. Life is good, who needs drugs? If you really knew Mark you might understand.

We've never met and probably never will but I was so happy to read your announcement.
She's a beautiful lady, inside and out, I hope you both find happiness forever.

You are correct my friend. We are almost at a point where companionship is at the top of the list ........ but not quite maybe ;)

I'm done worrying about you Mark. You appear to be in very capable hands. My best wishes for the fiance and fiancee (no, I can't figure out how to put the 'doogle' over the first 'e'). :D :encourage:
