    Congrats!

    But...

    This isn't a "Green Card" thing, is it?:p

    Just kidding! Hope you have many happy years.

    Many, many heartfelt thanks from us happy pair of pickers !!
    So, we've been real good friends since I joined here in '06 and as our respective personal situations changed we became much closer via the good old TDP but have always sat on it 'til we finally got to hook up last year and kinda went 'public' with it so it wasn't quite the 'lightening quick' affair it seems !, she's been after that red Tele since forever !!

    Judge Glenn Bass gave a wonderful, joyous service and Tim and gtrjones were in attendance along with gtrjones wife Victoria and we went from there to Dave and Busters for the ultimate Mandy Marie wedding feast - some great food, Margaritas and time playing video games !!, yeah, she beat me at Air Hockey but I thrashed her at SkiBall !
    We are planning a more 'traditional' wedding day later this year, at the moment it's endless hours of house hunting and form filling, once we get settled in then we can plan it !!, can you imagine how cool our wedding band will be ? :)
    It's tempting to say our wedding list will be at 'Austin Vintage' but just to put faces to more screen names will be fine - of course - any 6L6's or DR 9-42 strings will always get you to the head of the guest list :)
    Yep, two years ago I would have been the most vociferous 'anti web dating' cynical feller in the world but hey !, it worked for us -- and we are more than happy, not many couples have string gauges, favourite Roy Nichols solos and favourite amp coverings as 'pillow talk' :)

    She says I tricked her into driving through the pits but I think we know the truth !! :)

    Judge Glenn Bass? Lesse, two guitar pickers, add one Bass; was the court clerk named Drumm by any chance?

    Well John, Mandy could tell you that I use DR Pure Blues 9's, buy I prefer 5881's in my Bassman! :) And as you may already know, I met my wife on match.com, and we've been together for goin on six years now, so we're a testament to the fact that it can work. It may not be the cross continental love affair of yourself and the new Mrs. Stannard, but I live in Pennsylvania and she's from Oregon... 2900 miles ain't nothing to laugh at! Lol
