That's exactly the first thing that went through my mind. WOOOOOOO!

Her Dad would have run you a long time ago if you were bad for his daughter. Congrats on pulling the trigger. My wife & I celebrate our 25 year anniversary in December. We lived together 4 years before getting hitched.
Best wishes.

Thanks y'all, I think I did good. Coulda went on a luxury vacation instead of ring, but you only do this once. Second thought, some do it 2,3,4 times.I won't have to, got the one.
I'm nervous not that she'll say no, but how to make proposal perfect. Anyone knows me knows I am high anxiety and emotional, my fingers ain't quit drumming and I've shed some tears gotta make it perfect.

Ric Flair reference, priceless, she says yes, I'll be styling and profiling WOOOOOO Natch ain't have crap on me besides 10 more wives she says yes elbow drops

What doesn't work is how my neighbor used to treat his wife, he treated her like an old TV, slapped a couple of time until it got the picture, I think he gets out of the place the make license plates in 2022

So I did it. All day sal was asking "why are you so quiet", um no reason "you haven't said three words all day". "Your nervous, what is it, your tugging on your goatee" Always use that as my stress relief baby blanket. Man I had 800 proposal speeches in my head, I was running through, I had to call one of our landowners to get permission to use a hill top where you can see 20 miles of colored trees. It's beautiful, take turkey pics up there.

Played off as we were gonna take fall pics of my great nephew for fall which we did. Then my big sis said you guys get some pics, and it happened.

I'm surprised I held it together, I am an extremely emotional person, I'll cry at drop of a hat, but I got through and she said YES... I have high anxiety, yesterday, it was turbo, not that I thought she'd say no, but, I wanted it perfect.

Part of my proposal was "Alot of folks get to marry the one they love, I get to marry the one I love, my favorite hunting partner and my best friend"

Alot of folks never thought this would happen, we'd stay together this long, we had our problems, I was not a nice person years ago, cocky, arrogant, but I'm blessed she stuck it out. God blessed me with a beautiful day to do it and peak colors.

Sis got it all on video and took pics, I'll post tommorow. Well I guess today haven't been able to sleep.

Congratulations, glad everything worked out. Now the planning process begins, just let her do her thing and say "YES DEAR" and things will be just fine!
