Congratulations Ernie. I hope she knows what she is getting herslf into. I hear it's hard being legally attached to us guys with our addiction.

Well, if she buries him in the yard with his new knife, then in 10,000 years archeologists will dig him up and determine that the knife was man's first weapon before the light saber.

:DI told my wife to bury me in the front yard with a life jacket and a small raft, then future generations will think there was an ocean here. Just to screw with their minds.

Congratulations Ernie! My wife and I celebrated our 33rd this past New Year's Eve and I wouldn't trade it for anything... Well, maybe fame and fortune - - naw, I'm good. :unsure::confused::D

If you guys put as much work into your marriage as you did in your first knife, you'll do great.

All the best,

Best wishes to you and your future wife, Ernie. Marriage is a great institution but who the hell wants to live in an institution?

Congrats Ernie! All the best to you.
My avatar is from the day I proposed in '05. It was opening morning of bow hunting just south of Wisconsin Rapids. I scored the best dear that day.

Good Luck

Congrats, Ernie. My wife is my better third.

02-08-2010, 12:19 AM
DANG Ernie...and you looked so normal! 2guns

Congratulation man.

You know, it's funny. The wife and I are working on 34 years. If you get past the first couple years, the disappointment of how hard you have to work at it becomes a way of life and you forget what a pain it is. So it gets WAY easier the longer you go. :D

Just kidding man. Wouldn't trade a day for anything.

Might sell it out right. :bud:

Tell her congratulations from all the dogs and welcome to the family.

Congrats Ernie, Heres to a long and happy life together. My wife and I celebrated 26 years Today!

If your taking advice for a long happy marriage, here is the best saying I have LIVED by, and it has worked for quite a while, it goes like this,
" Happy wife, happy life!"
Congratulations, I'd also advise full disclosure, make sure she knows that knife making is an addiction/disease, that the only cure for it is to make a better one after you just made your best one, mine is still dealing with that notion, but like I said full disclosure means, she knew that up front, so she can't argue with me about it....too much!
