My wife told me the other day that she has put $2200 in the safe to spend on vacation this summer. I am almost hoping we can't go! LOL

My wife made my daughter's wedding dress 20 years ago. Even then it cost over $500. It would have been several thousand if we had bought it. Around $10K to get here married off. I offered to give them $5K if they would have a simple wedding with just the immediate family but she wanted a wedding.

Sounds like my wife. I wanted to get married for free in the church, then have a cheap but good party at the barn..... I never saw the reception hall she booked until the two weeks after...... She plunked $3500 on the booking fee. Was a fun time though.

Ellwood - *RESPECT* You are a good man Charlie Brown! Much, MUCH respect for putting their needs first.

If gun pron helps, here is a picture of my GRP with a Robar NP3 Plus coating.
