I did it!!! Look out Vegas!(15 posts)

I did it!!! Look out Vegas!EJC

Okay, after the wonderful holiday the GF took me on back in July (and the fact that she and I have been together for near three years now, live together and are quite in love...) I did it!!!

I figured, if she can surprise me with a Holiday to France to watch the Tour, I can surprise, last night I caught her completely off guard and handed her (surrepticiously of course) a new Dura Ace rear derailluer, but in the box was...a ring! She flipped (and said yes, thank Gawd, as you will see why...)

Now she and I are a fairly practical type, as we have both been married once before, and are not big into a huge wedding or even big reception...Knowing this, I took it upon myself to book tix to Vegas for this weekend, and we leave in 5 hours, returning on the red-eye Sunday night (must be back in our respective offices Monday morning, married or not!) So off we go to Vegas for a wedding, a little 'slots' (double entendre intended) and to giggle ourselves silly over the fact that we have found each other and are making it official!

BUT, no bikes will be brought with us this trip! Wish us luck folks!

EJC - doing something crazy for once, but feels damn good about it!

Seriously, I figured it had some poetic irony to it!

Congratulations and much happiness.

Make sure the hotel knows that you came to get married. They will take good of you.

. . .you crazy kids! What a great story. Thanks for sharing with this moment with us. Have a great time in Vegas, even though you'll probably never leave the hotel room after the ceremony :-)

If you found a woman who will accept a ring out of a Dura Ace box, she must be more into cycling than you. Congrats and best wishes.

Not a Campy Record box?ColnagoFE
