    30 years ago today

    For reasons that I will never understand Mrs. Thumbcocker agreed to be my wife. Her Dad was a sitting Judge and preformed the ceremony in the back yard of his house (on a lake). We have seen a lot together. Had some amazing good times and some gut wrenching losses. In those 30 years I have never experienced one second of doubt that she had my back through whatever life threw at us. We will keep on riding the river together and see what is on the other side. If there is nothing there that's ok with me. It has been a great life and I am well pleased that we got to share it.

    Congratulations to you and your Mrs., Thumbcocker. It looks like you're going to make it! We'll have 51 years together in Dec.

    Hoping your next years are better than mine were at 30 years. Best of luck. Lucky she has your back.

    You and Mrs. Thumbcocker are doing very well being together this long, hope you have another 20+ years of this great fling through life.. The wife and I will be married 50 years this coming October 31st ( yes, it was Holloween the day we got married).. We have had our ups and downs, but in all those 50 years neither of us lost the faith we had in each other.. Have been around my wife since we were both 14 years old, she was a PA. city girl and I was a backwoods PA. country boy.. Yes it has been a great adventure!!!

    For reasons that still escape ME, Mrs. Kosh agreed to be MY wife, on this date! It was TWO years ago, but isn't it interesting, the coincidence?

    Both of you are very lucky to have found, not only love, but a partner in life.
    I'm still looking.

    Congrats...my wife has put up with me for 31. We wanted to get away in June for our anniversary...but with WuFlu shutting down everything...it just didn't happen....so we decided that since we normally go camping in the Fall, we'd do our anniversary getaway instead. Next weekend we'll celebrate our 31st in the Northern Mountains of NH at a nice resort.

    Again...congrats.

    Congratulations, Thumbcocker!

    Wife and I celebrate our 30th on 10/20. I'll be delivering 30 red roses to her at work that day.

    Congratulations and may you two be blessed with many more years! My wife and I are heading towards our 49th - seems like the time has passed so quickly but a whole lot of good memories along the way. I hope you two had a great day and best wishes.
