Shouldn't that have read, "I got married once
, back in 1981. Now that was a "Lesson Learned" WOW!"
My take is AJ was married in 1981, got divorced (lesson learned), and remarried.
Gman's sentence implies one marriage. Which, unless Mormon. ONe (at a time) is all ya get. No implication of a second wife.
Unless your Quad, then you get your 8th grade girlfriend and you present wife.
Another story. Travel 175 miles from W. Washington to E. Washington lake. Boat in tow. One stop along the way. Reach the boat ramp. Back boat trailer into the lake. Keep in mind this boat ramp is very shallow, not at all steep. About the time the trailer tires touch the lake water. The boat trailer tongue hits the pavement!!! The tow ball is coupled in the trailer tongue and the hitch has a empty hole where the tow ball should be!!!. The style of tow ball is like none I have ever seen. It is not a one piece tow ball with a threaded stud protruding down through it. But has a hole drilled up into the tow ball, tapped for threads and a bolt thread's up through the hole in the tow hitch and into the threaded hole in the tow ball. Luckily the trailer stops on the almost flat boat ramp. I tell my dad to stop backing immediately. He says why. I say the boat trailer is no longer attached to the truck!! LOL!!! We are standing there wondering what the hell and how did we ever make it to this point without the catastrophe occurring somewhere on the highway!!!! Feeling very lucky at the time. Another issue showed itself. When the boat trailer tongue hit the pavement. The trailer's tongue extension of the trailer bent. Revealing a badly rusted, thin walled piece of boat trailer, hidden under some decent looking trailer paint. Tightened the tow ball bolt and made it back home. Replaced the damaged trailer piece with the help of Mann's welding. This wasn't a car topper on a trailer either. It was a 18ft boat.
