Thats an interesting story. I bet a lot people booked that day for weddings and events. Pretty confident move booking the date before any engagement lol. Thanks for the well wishes, we've been together a long time and I dont see that changing. Shes my best friend and I think we have a good understanding of each other. The reason we did 7/7/17 was because we were going to elope on 7/7/07 while upstate at her parents cabin. We werent able to get a witness lol. As the years went by our priorities shifted and marriage became just a title so we decided to do it 10 years later. Not many people knew that story but we let them all know the significance of the date. I want to learn to weld myself but I dont think it'll be on a car I actually like. May buy a heap for a few hundred bux and go to town. I have a harbor freight flux welder but I wouldnt work on sheet metal with that.
