Greetings fellow SRX owners. This post is a non-automotive
missive. On a scale of one to ten, it will probably rate as a
zero plus! Anywho, I will be 82 next month, still in love with
automotive machinery, and recently took delivery of a 2011
Luxury SRX. My first vehicle was an army surplus jeep I
purchased in 1945, for $400.00. For the hearing impaired,
that was 'many a moon' ago. Anywho, I digress. My purpose
today is to inform everyone that my lovely wife and I are
celebrating our 58 wedding anniversary today. (And they said
it wouldn't last!)

what's you secret, I've been married for 18 years and my "one of these days Alice" seems more frequent lately.

Our secret is that we had a 50-50 relationship.
I earned it, and she spent it.
Sorry, I experienced a senior moment with my initial post.
I forgot the attachment. Return with me now to
the day of yesterday (some would say infamy), September 20, 1952.
My bride is entering my 1950 Oldsmobile 98.

Congratulations on your continuous marriage for all these years.:thumbsup:


So it looks like the secret is to carry the bride home in a 1950 Oldsmobile 98. http://www.ciws.net/smiles/wink.gif

And here, in this day and age, I thought I was really sticking it out 10 years. Super congrats!

btw, I had an SRX as a loaner once. Well executed vehicle. How anyone could choose an RX over an SRX is beyond me.
