    20 years ago today...

    I married my best friend! We met in 1984, starting dating seriously in 1989 and married in 1993. I can thank her to this day for helping me turn my life around. I was running around with the wrong group of guys I had known since I was a kid, 2 of them have been in and out of prison numerous times, another died of an OD in 1995 and the 4th one is in prison for life for shooting the 5th one in the head in 1992. She gave me focus, something to live and work for and showed me how to appreciate life without drugs. When she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1999 my life changed again, it became all about her and being able to make sure she has everything she needs to live a comfortable life with a horrible disease. We decided to live life to the fullest today cause God only knows what tomorrow will bring. Looking forward to another 20+ more years!

    Here we are doing what we love the most, going to the races.

    Thanks guys!

    I really can not find a pic of us both where she isnt doing rabbit ears behind my head!

    We really are not much on bday celebrations, holidays and stuff. We save our money to go and do things we like, vacations, headed to the drags, weekends in the RV etc. I think she was shocked this morning when I handed her a card with a nice long note in it basically thanking her for a great 20 years and for all she has done to make me a better man. She was in tears when I left, good tears of course.
    Not doing any celebrating tonite but we are gonna make the best of the weekend, local town is having their "good ole days" celebration saturday night with some fantastic fireworks and then Sunday her favorite winery is having a Art & Wine festival along with a car show. So we are gonna head over in the Trans Am and get a little culture going on or I just might end up doing burnouts in the parking lot :!: :lol:
