Whatever happened to TG?  Think he held the age diff record 'round here.

He was here in Feb 2020

I haven't heard from Ray for a few years, but ironically, last I heard, he and Irina were still together (but that's a while back)....

Ray was "The Defender" of the faith.


Just as an update we are still together.  I believe assuming nothing unexpected happens for in the months ahead we will have completed 15 years of married life late this year.  I am amazed that anyone could put up with me for such a long time.


Someone mentioned the age difference which for us is 37 1/2 years.  I would not recommend that for anyone and if I am honest I have to say it did create a few issues but pretty much manageable issues for us.

Good to see you around Ray.
Too bad about our Steelers this year.
I didn't realize that Irina was that much older than you.

I didn't either but if she is 37 1/2 years older than me she is looking pretty good for someone getting close to 120 years old. :popcorn:

Me too.. :P

Ray, great to see you're still around and doing well.

For those who don't know Ray, I always thought he was too much the defender of the age gap advocates but, a finer gentleman with whom to conduct an online debate, one would doubtful find.

Ray, that ability to remain unruffled has no doubt served your marriage to an intelligent and exasperating, as most of them are, Russian woman, very well.

I wish you as many happy years as you've already had together but if I crunch some numbers, that probably a stretch...🤭

All the best, you're one of the best....

Thanks for the nice comments.  I appreciate it and it was nice to see both of you are still around and doing well.  I think the ability to remain unruffled could probably make married to a RW much easier.   I can't say we have ever had an argument in the decade and a half we have been together but I do think the ability to not get ruffled helped with that. Of course picking a good woman is the real key to success.

Turbo, are you actually saying there has been no argument because an argument must be a two sided event ?  i.e. Your ability to remain unruffled !
