25 years! What to do.......

hot_rod Member Posts: 15,033
Trying to think what I need to do for the gal who's put up with me for 25 years!

Silver is traditional & there'll be something along that line, but I'm looking for something truly unforgetable.

More radiantly heated objects within the home? Nope, that won't do!

A factory tour? Hardly!

A tour of china? No, not that one - I meant Kohler or Eljer or something like that(G).

Maybe a trip to the home of Danfoss! "Hey honey - look at that - it's a Danfoss plant. Let's stop in for a tour(G)" SLAP! Nope, not subtle enough.

25 lumps of coal? That's for X-mas.

    or their is always a nice platnium ring,or fireworks at her favourite resturant.

    all the best

    Another frontal lobotomy !

    Just kidding ! congratulations. Great to hear that someone has put up with one of "us" for so long.

    Anything you get featuring silver, should be encrusted with diamonds too.(it'll keep you in the best of graces)
    I like Gary' idea. A local newspaper from the day you were married, framed. Add on a trip of a lifetime, a second(or third etc.)honeymoon, and she's yours for another 25 .

    Best of luck , and again, CONGRATULATIONS . Chris

    25 years?

    Pick out the best memory from each year and put it in a book.

    My Best wishes to you both

    But mostly to Lois, putting up with plumbing talk for that long she deserve something Big !

    In todays world , you two are something special. Nobody seems to be able to work at a marraige, and stick around for twenty five years. You've both done a great job.
