Congratulations, you two! That is an amazing feat in this day and time, and a great example to all.

Now Darrell, I know you jest. But just place this thought in the back of your mind. If you were so silly as to suggest you weren't going to keep her, there would be a line of potential suitors on your front porch, Dude. She's one in a million! :{_}:

BigDog ole buddy, congrats on your fine salesmanship! How else could you have managed to keep the sweet Ms. Janet for 42 years???...well....I hereby nominate Ms. Janet to replace Mother Theresa....SHE's certainly a saint for putting up with your shenanigans for all that time! :lol: :big smile: :bellylaugh:

All kidding aside, 42 years is a great goal for us younger folk...Jeanine's only been putting up with me for 34, and I feel sometimes like I'm still living on borrowed time! :mrgreen:

Congrats you two...and best wishes for many more to come!

I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!

Hope you both had a wonderful day yesterday :{_}: I have to agree with Dennis's comments. A true inspriation to us all.

I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Congratulations to you both! It must be a great thing to spend so many years together. I'm on my second marriage--18 years. I wish I'd gotten it right the first time, as those 13 years were pretty much wasted.
