I got engaged this weekend. :eek:

Please send your condolences to Zaphod@..... :biggrin:
Those darm women.. Messing with mens minds.. What is this world coming to??

Congratulations to both of you!!! :thumb:
:biggrin: Congratulations Z - LOL. (You guys are so funny.)

She had her ring sized yesterday.

My appointment to size me for my ball and chain is later this afternoon. :rolleyes:
That is wonderful news! Congratulations. She seems like a good influence.:shake:

Did she ask you or did you ask her? And when is the wedding going to happen?
Z - thanks for sharing the great news! No wonder you have seemed more "reasonable" lately!! :wink: :shake:

Remember if you keep her happy then you will be happy-:thumb:

I asked her in the middle of a jewelry show, about 5 minutes after spending an obscene amount of money on a ring she fell in love with.

Her passion is jewelry (she's a jeweler), so we were there to take advantage of the wholesale pricing. She had no idea the QUESTION was coming that quick, though. Caught her off balance. :biggrin:

As for the wedding date, who knows? We'll probably just fly out to Vegas one weekend and take care of it. She doesn't want the dog-and-pony show any more than I do. :thumb:
Thanks! :biggrin:

So let's see......

This makes Engagement v3.0 and hopefully Marriage v2.0.

Either way, it's the LAST time for EITHER. :mad:
An Old Irish Blessing

Walls for the wind,
And a roof for the rain,
And drinks beside the fire -
Laughter to cheer you
And those you love near you,
And all that your heart may desire!

Congatulations and Good luck


I assume that this poor woman is aware of your sordid past life as a sailorman. We'll all chip in and send her a gold plated and diamond encrusted rolling pin to keep you under control!

Congratulations and welcome back to the chain gang!
LOL. Good point. :biggrin:

Maybe I'll just say, "Ma'am, yes ma'am!" :thumb:
^^^^ Ignore that bit of advice. :shake: Sub, I say we gift the wife to be with a rolling pin with spikes in it rather than the diamonds & such. I've got that version & its worked for 27 years. Then again, I have a pretty good relationship with my hit man who I get a Xmas card from every year. I think he does gift certificates. I could get her that instead.....

Z, you made my day. Congrats buddy. Raising a glass to you both & the girls while repeating what Mike said. :thumb:
Z, what wonderful news!! Congratulations!!! It is time to break out the Champagne!! I wish you and your fiance much happiness! :yay: :yay:
