Okay here we go.

Based on the thread "Do love stories like this ever happen ?", let's hear Fooster's real love stories. Let's hear the sappy stuff, the kind that makes us all go "awwwwwwwwwww........". And none of that made up stuff, Jsharr.

I think you are missing some verbs or nouns in the middle of your story.

What did jack do? Up what?

I do not have any magic fall in love moments, but I like to think my proposal was pretty unique.

When I met my wife, I was pretty heavily involved in sail boat racing. Crewed for a couple of different boat owners. One of our first dates was on a race boat. She took to it quite well and we ended up sailing together on two different boats on a very regular basis.

When I decided to ask her to marry me, I wanted it to be with our sailing friends, so I decided to have my proposal put on a spinnaker. I got one guy to donate on old solid white spinnaker. I had a friend at a sail loft cut out the letters from red sticky back nylon to stick to the sail. My roommate and my brother helped me lay out the sail and get the letters on it just right.

I planned my proposal to occur at a big charity regatta where most of our friends would be in attendance. My parents where there, as were hers, riding on a boat in the spectator fleet.

As we sailed back into the marina after the day's racing, the boat owner, who was in on the plan, suggested that we try a "new spinnaker" before we but the boat away. We tied on the new sail still in the bag and hoisted it to the head of the mast. My wife to be was our spinnaker trimmer and as the sail filled she realized what it said and just sat down on the deck of the boat in shock.

Horns began to blow from boats in the spectator fleet and we sailed into the marina with that sail flying. It was a very cool day.

BTW, she said yes.

That's pretty cool, Jsharr. IF that was real. Got pics of the sail? I'd ask for pics of the actual event but I don't want to put you in an awkward position.

Reader's Digest Version.

I'm at work and an inmate walks up to show me a picture of his girlfriend. She's gorgeous. Same night she is there to see him for a visit. My post, I'm in charge.

They are sitting at a table, I see her crying so I bring Kleenex. She smiles, later he gives me some lame excuse as to why she was crying. I clock out, go to my car to go home for the night. There she is asleep in her car with no place to turn for help.

I take her home. She changes into something more comfortable and my blood pressure triples. (She is beautiful, looks like a very young Grace Kelly)

She spend the next three days, two nights at the house and the terriers fall in love with her. (She passes the Airwick test)

We become good friends but she wants more. We discuss her future and it looks like I have a pretty houseguest for at least the next month.

She gets a phonecall the third night.

Just like that it was over.

She writes me a week or so later and tells me how much she misses us. My heart tells me to go get her but my head knows she is too young and impetuous. So I don't.

Almost six months later but her fragrance still lingers in the house.
