Re: Popping the BIG question
#1 - I think we were out driving somewhere and I said to Mrs. Tucker #1 "so, do you want to get married or what?". She said "I suppose we should". I should have know then...
Many years later...
#2 - I asked Mrs. Tucker #2 out to dinner that night and told her we'd go somewhere nice so dress up.
I went out, bought a big rock, a dozen roses, a bottle of champagne, and put on my best suit.
Picked her up, took her to my place ostensibly for a pre-dinner drink, sat her on the couch next to the flowers, showed her the ring, and said "make me the happiest man in the world and marry me". She said "yes" after, oh, 2-3 nanoseconds.
We drank the champagne and went out to dinner (and got totally sloshed IIRC). The next day, we did the rounds of her parents, my parents, etc etc.
Pay attention to the open sky
