I thought I'd add this to my favorite forums besides just putting it in the General Forum. I figure it's a once in a lifetime deal for me, so what the heck?

I'm 42, never been married, and have no kids. I never thought I'd be the marrying type. I've always been too selfish or drunk to share myself completely.

But maybe I just hadn't met the right girl before. Elizabeth and I started dating 4 1/2 years ago, and now all I can think about is sharing everything with her for the rest of my life.

I got down on one knee Friday night and begged for her hand. Sometime this summer, I will be marrying WAY up. I think we will be very happy. Just thought I'd share a monster event in my life with you all.

So that's the reason you haven't been around the fishing forum much as of late!! Remember once the ring goes on the fishings done...

Once again congratulations. I think Liz looks better on this forum than that other one.

Sincere congratulations, Gil!

Now, are you going to bring her into the TNDeer fold so she can start posting the untold fin and fur misadventures of Gil?

I concur. Evidently she's a terrible judge of character, but very pretty.
