Feeling sentimental

#1
A long time ago, there was a poor woman who met a rich man. Through many hardships, thier relationship grew to one of love. One day, when the poor woman was visiting the rich man's large city from her small town, they met for luch at a small English Pub called The Spotted Dick. The place was a popular lunch location, so most seats were filled. To rectify the problem, the pub manager had put a tabletop over the pool table allowing for bar type seating all around. The man and woman found seats at this makeshift table.

During the course of the meal, the man suddenly proposed marriage. Although the woman was not easily caught off guard, she was completely surprised by this turn of events. After assuring that the man was sincere and had really thought this out, she gleefully accepted his proposal. They were to be wed.

The man returned to work, but afterwards the two met up again. The man took her to Spence Diamonds, a huge reputable diamond retailer. They walked into the glittering showroom and the man told her to choose anything she wanted. After looking at everything, the woman chose a lovely half carat set with three smaller diamonds in a gold band. The soon-to-be-husband made the purchase and the engagement was set "in stone".

All this happened exactly 8 years ago today. The rich man isnt quite so rich anymore and the poor woman isn't nearly so poor, but so far they have lived happily every after.

And that ring still gleams brightly on my hand.

NICE story triedit, very nice. Romance and sentimentality are good things. We celebrated our 27th anniversary a few days ago the same way we have every anniversary, by handing out treats at the door to groups of children in costumes. Yep, we were married on Halloween in 1980, and the omens must have been right, 'cause we're still best friends as well as lovers. I hope you're as happy as we are.

Well, Tri, I'm just basing it on that other guy you want and other stuff you've told me. As I said, I'm holding my tongue so don't push me.

Quite frankly, between what you and Dave have put me through here, I personally think I am being very generous...and you know it.

I got a friend who married on Halloween too.

Easy for everyone to remember.

I always wanted to take my vows off the High Dive, and tape the "big plunge" tux and all into
the "Deep End." But alas dryer heads prevailed. And the fact that no high dive at any pool in
America exists anymore. Tort reform won't even bring them back.

Congratulations Triedit !! Nice story. Let's develop a newspaper that bursts forth headlines like
COUPLE FINDS LOVE



Dinner at the pool table made me recall an old wish.
