So took a big step!!!!

Post by ICDEDTURKES » October 9th, 2018, 4:00 pm

Those of y'all been on forums with me for years, know sal and I are inseparable. We've been together 18 years hunting, guiding etc She's my best friend, she is my life...

Took the step today and bought a ring. Probably rally up the crew in the goose field to propose, I want them there. My friends are her friends. This has been coming forever.

My friends been texting in shock that I bought a ring. We've gone over wedding plans many times, just never seemed real, now it is

Congratulations, Tom.
I pretty much did the same as you. I was with my wife for 12 years before we got married.
Engaged for 8 or so. I did buy the ring. Just never got around to getting married. We too, were inseparable. Finally got it done.
I will say one thing. Waiting to get married was a Huge mistake! Can’t explain it. It was/is the greatest thing I ever did! When you have the right lady, and I did, and I’m sure you do, it just changes everything !! You will see this. I’m sure...
I wish you and Sal nothing but the best!!
Congrats again and good luck!! :cheers:

BTW. My Dads favorite saying about getting married.. he said it’s kinda like taking a bath...
Once you get in... it ain’t so hot!! :shock:
May I assume you're not here to inquire about the alcohol or the tobacco?

Good luck. If you still want to marry her after an 18 year test run, then she's the one. I hope she doesn't say no :o :lol:

Thanks all

Spider: welcome if you can shoot my crew can't
MKW: you know how to stand?
Guess who: she says no, it's due to the big Black guy sniffing around
Hardest part gonna be asking her dad he is the, salt the earth most godly hard working, conservative you've met. Probably one of the most upstanding men I've met. I'm a Christian, conservative, but far from perfect he's a dang saint After 18 he loves me but I'm still scared, to take his babies hand

Huh?? And, don't worry about Dad. If he knows you, and I'm sure he does, he will be proud for you to take Sal's hand. All a father really wants is for someone to love his daughter as much as he does. You'll be just fine.
