I've got a record number of pings for this here thread!
I sure hope someone comes up with some photos soon....... .
It's a long (and very romantic) story, but, yes---we're a product of FR. We met in February 2002, at a post- World Economic Forum counter-FReep gathering at a bar in New York (I was not at that freep, but that's another long story and immaterial to this one). I was engaged to someone else at the time, and wasn't looking at all the nice DC boys in attendance as date material, but I did meet sauropod that evening, and he actually has our first conversation on videotape.
Fast-forward about seven months, when I dumped my (liberal) fiance and was about to lose computer access for about a month. sauropod just happened to freepmail me about a fundraiser for a land-rights issue, right when I was about to sign off my fiance's computer for the last time, and I mentioned to 'Pod that I was breaking off an engagement and would be incommunicado for a while...and after a decent interval of about *two weeks*, he proceeded to thoroughly woo me via freepmail. Freepmail led to phone calls, phone calls led to a first date on Nov. 9, 2002, first date led to the realization that we were made for one another.
The rest is history. And we are so glad we're not doing the long-distance thing anymore, and are man and wife today.
Marriage is great. I highly recommend it. All freepers who can do so, should pair up as soon as possible.
Congratulations all around!
It's called "reaping what I have sown", after all the times I've bitched about non-Breaking News stuff in Breaking News.
Okay, I guess we can grant you guys an exception then! I'm only 41 myself but no way do I want to have new kids at this time of my life! My wife and I are just starting to have fun again now that our own kids are almost grown up.
It's about time he made an HONEST WOMAN OUT OF YOU!!!
Hiya Neets! < hugs>
What a wonderful thing...Freepers, getting married. I LOVE it!
That's a good looking couple!!!! Had a second bowl of real stone ground grits just to celebrate!
Good women ( or men ) are hard to find- my very best to the new couple, and thanks, Howin, for notifying me.
Yep, ole #12 does come in handy at times!
Told my husband if he said "Yes, dear" with THAT tone of voice again I was going to bop him.
Congratulations & Best Wishes for a long & blissful marriage. :)
Happiest Wishes to both of you!! :) :)
That is excellent! Congratulations to you both!
I myself am happily married to a decent, conservative man who enjoys going to the Portland, Oregon Starbucks with his Bush/Cheney 2004 bumper sticker just to annoy liberals. It doesn't get better than that!
Oh dear and with your, nevermind...
HnH, you want me to find you a really good #12 skillet or a really, REALLY, heavy duty rolling pin?
Ditto that. My husband and I are 46 with a daughter who turned 15 today. July 4, 2007 is OUR independence day!
