    It's official!!!

    I guess Angie loves me more than I thought. She mentioned a few times last summer about me needing to get a Lifeline jacket for when I am out making some runs trying to get seat time and creep higher in MPH. We agreed that I needed one and would get one before I started hitting it hard this year. For my birthday this past Saturday she ordered me a Sport Vest 160. Ken with Lifeline called me today and confirmed all my information and had some questions about my measurements. He said the girls wanted a picture of a guy with a 45" chest and a 35" waist LoL. I explained to him about my having cancer when I was 7 and that I was a hip dis-articulate (my right hip joint and part of my right pelvis was removed almost at the spine) and he understood.

    I sent a couple pics of my old boat that I love so much along with a picture of myself and Angie. He asked my permission to put them on their Facebook page along with the story behind my wanting a Lifeline.

    I am so happy right now...cant wait for warmer weather!

    That's great, thank you!
    I had been after this one for about 32 years and finally got her last April (through my rebuilding process on my old Cobra of all things!). Coming up on our 1st year anniversary and haven't had a single disagreement or problem...not even close. Every day feels like the first official date.

    Thank you all. Ii love it that Angie is into fishing and especially fast boating. I actually have been friends with her dad almost as long as her. He used to buy some parts for his race car and some fancy street cars from me at a local speed shop where I worked, and we were at the track almost every weekend with the same friends.
