"Now that you have read my husband’s report card on me, it’s my turn. Having been married to Pete for almost 37 years in October, I think I know him now. We also think that the marriage will work out too.
Several years ago while on the way to a gun show in Phoenix, we discussed the fact that we were NOT going to buy any guns. Everything was fine when we got there, and for some reason we got separated.
While I was looking at one table I discovered a Winchester 1897 pump shotgun that I needed for my Cowboy Action Shooting. Pete had his, but I wanted one for myself. I asked how much, and the price could not be beat for the condition was mighty fine. Normally we discuss everything but I couldn’t find him, so I had to make a decision. Well I figured if I said we couldn’t buy anything, then I guess I could break my own rule.
When he finally found me I had the shotgun over my shoulder. The look on his face was priceless. “I thought you said we were not buying anything today”? The laugher started and we continued to enjoy the show together. I think he was afraid to leave me alone again.
My husband has been by my side for all the exciting times putting AWSA together, helped out when needed, even if it was “go for” this and that. He is my rock and support, and encourages me all the way. His sense of humor is uplifting when I need it most, and to all the ladies at AWSA.
The stories are endless with my husband, but know this,
I LOVE THIS MAN!"
