    'Will You Mary Me?'

    Chris Mueller, 25, was nearly finished etching the big question into a harvested soybean field when he realized the 'm' in 'marry' took up too much room.

    Since he couldn't erase a plowed field, he had a decision to make.

    "I figured it would look better to spell it wrong and get a laugh out of it, rather than botch it all," Mueller told the Grand Forks Herald. "I could have fit all the letters in, but it would have looked tacky."

    Instead, it read: "KATIE WILL YOU MARY ME?"

    Mueller's next step involved taking his girlfriend, Katie Goltz, for an airplane ride under the guise of looking for deer. At first, she missed the misspelling. Goltz was caught up in the message.

    "I scanned it, noticed what it said and was speechless," she said. "I said 'yes' and cried like all girls do."

    But on closer inspection, Goltz realized "marry" was a letter short.

    "I thought it was so sweet that he spelled it wrong," she said. "I thought it made it more cute and more special."

    LOL, I love the unusual ways that people find to pop the question.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    My daughter and her boyfriend are going to an engagement party tonight. The guy was so clever in what he did. First, he asked the father for permission - granted. Next he called her employer and asked if she could have the day off for a very special engagement - granted. She has spent her day today on a scavenger hunt. He started her this morning with an "errand." He sent her to the cleaners to pick up some clothes. When she got there, what she found was a rose with instructions for her next stop. She was to go to the florist and pick up flowers, get her hair done, makeup done, etc. ending up tonight at a HUGE party thrown on the riverwalk in San Antonio. Each stop had a rose and the next location she needed to go and at what time picking up little gifts and things along the way. They have been dating for about 2 years and they have dreamed of getting married. My daughter hasn't heard from her yet today, but I can't help wondering if she has any idea what's going on. She thinks they are going to a party in San Antonio. I told her to take many pictures - I can't wait to see them!

    I thought the whole thing was very cool....

    My husband asked me by spelling out "Marry Me" in Firewood the whole width of the backyard, and it was lit by torches (at least the wood itself was not lit on fire!)

    We left it up for a day or two, and did always expect someone who'd seen it from an airplane to try and contact us, but no one ever did!

    I'll say! All I could do was laugh when it happened!
    So it would not have gone down as one of the more romantic moments in history
