    Santa,
    We got married on 24 Dec 1973, so we have a lot in common in the length of time being married. Like you said, "...you got to have a lot of humor...", or at least not take yourself so seriously!
    Thanks for your comments....

    Totally taken out of context. I was speaking collectively of how each of us is made whole by our wife, in the sense of family...

    My wife and I are having our 16th anniversary today. If needs be I would trade my life for hers. I can't say it better than that.

    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

    I guess some people are more inspired than others.

    Fudo, You said it all! It may have been a case of self-preservation that got us to think about Concealed Carry, but it is our Love Of Family that continued to motivate us. From time immemorial, we have had the role of "Provider and Protector" of our families. It IS a strong motivational factor!

    Thanks to all of you for your comments and thoughts...

    John:

    Very well written! I hope that one of your retirement hobbies is writting. If not it should be. For an "enlisted man" you are quite impressive with the pen (keyboard).

    You are so right on. I have an almost identical story about my angel(wife who also miraculously lifted a lawn tractor off me in a bar ditch. Fortuately i only broke a leg. We sould all learn how important these female gifts are and treat them and respect them accordingly. God bless you sir. If this kind of discussion is not appreciated or allowed here please let me know.
