    Yes it is true......Today is our Wedding Anniversary.... Thirty years.

    Thirty wonderful years (so to speak) with a woman that has allowed this "jerk" go out and put 25 years on the ski slopes:eek:oooh:, as well as put up with maintaining my boats to further my passion of fishing....:wink:

    She has allowed me to spend hours of time communicating on the internet with complete strangers.:wink:

    She has accompanied me on many trips to meet up with fellow BOC members from the "California Boys" to brothers from Arizona at the annual AZ/CA Gathering.:cool2:

    She has fished with me as far North as the Rouge River in Oregon, the Delta, the Colorado river, and so many other lakes on the River, as well as California lakes....

    Some of you have enjoyed her special touches with the cooking that she has prepared for the boys to enjoy...

    It has not been smooth sailing at all..... but now that I have my retirement to enjoy....I would not rather enjoy it with anyone else....

    "Got more places to see, and folks to meet".....("on the water")

    Happy New Year BOC....

    "Been lots of fond memories" and looking forward to more years with this wonderful "LADY".......

    "HAPPY NEW YEAR BOC" Brothers and Sisters... Tight lines from Ray and Sharlene Gilman......"At the Beach at Los Angles"

    Congrats Ray. 30 yrs is a long time isn't it Mrs. Ray. At least that is what my wife said to me earlier this month when we hit 33 yrs.
