If you could add one phrase to Rance & Sweden's wedding vows,what would it be ?
I don't know if you want to call it an "Embellishment" but I have a small dent on the rear bumper of my Nissan SUV.. I was at a gas station and wanted to back up to get out, and there was one of those short steel posts a few feet behind me, which isn't visible no matter what kind of vehicle you drive, and I backed into it...

I don't like bumper stickers, so I don't have any, but I have one of those stickers on the rear window of my truck and SUV, which has Alvin bowing down infront of the cross.

I haven't done my holiday shopping yet, I'll probably wait until the last minute!

I won't be scaling back this year.

As for a phrase for Rance's and Sweden's wedding.... Hmmmm.. How about I now pronounce you man and wife?

Well phooey, one less fish in the sea! Congrats to both of them! Should City-data perhaps be listed as a dating site?

While we're talking about bumper stickers, I had a Camaro Z-28 back in 1983, and being a guitarist at that time, I had a bumper sticker that said "I [heart symbol] My Guitar", to show that I loved my guitar, and I'm sure you've seen different variations of them.

One time I was at my parents house, and my sister came over and started complaining about my bumper sticker, and she was saying things like "Mike that's a disgusting bumper sticker!". I had no idea what she was talking about, so we both walked outside and apparently somebody played a prank by putting a small sticker with a picture of a screw on it, that covered the heart symbol on the bumper sticker, so it read "I [screw symbol] my guitar" - well... you get the idea.. I peeled that sticker off just to show my sister that somebody only played a silly prank on me! LOL.. Imagine the possibilities of pranks, especially on those many variations of those bumper stickers, that show others you love something or someone!

I just hope I caught it before other drivers behind me saw it and thought I was weird or something!

Marriage is like a triangle with God at the top, husband and wife at the bottom, as the husband and wife draw closer to God, they draw closer to each other.

After spending too much of my day thinking about this I would add the following to the wedding ceremony.

The wedding ceremony will last a few minutes. Your marriage should last forever. Commit yourselves to each other for eternity.

That 'Ram' symbol...the little 'vinyl' one with the dealers name that was on the tailgate...I scraped that one off a couple of years ago! (Why do free advertising for a dealer?) The one 'hood ornament' thing is part of the hood and wont come off, its riveted on. But its not a sticker, its chrome, or something. I even tell the mechanics when they do an oil change NOT to put one of those little 'reminder' things on my windshield. I usually remind myself via day planner.

Today's Question :
Do you have "embellishments" on any of your vehicles ? No, unless you count grille guard(ie: bumper stickers,sport team flags, doggy nose prints,fancy front license plate etc) I found out a few years ago that there are people that target vehicles with stickers, etal and they scratch them up if they don't agree with your stickers meaning.

Extra Credit Question:
Have you started your "holiday shopping" ? No. Always shop the last week.

Bonus Question:
Will you be scaling back on the above mentioned shopping this year....no, being retired we don't need anything ourselves and for the kids, etal, we give gift cards to their favorite stores so they can buy what they really want.
