Happy for them
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:43:30 PM »
My Best friend Tim has been with his partner Ron for 32 years , I met my friend Tim in 3 rd grade and we have been friends ever since so I'm just as close to Ron as I am Tim after all these years .

They are getting married in Iowa on April 8th and they have invited me to go along for the celebration and I suspect knowing Ron its also to save $50 so he doesn't have to hire a witness  :) .  We are going to make a road trip out of it and stop along the way to do whatever we find worth doing .

I cant think of two people that are more deserving of their hearts desire and that is to be legally married, something my generation never thought we would see until a few years ago . I'm am just busting with joy for my two best buddies that have been with me through thick and thin my whole life so I had to share it here .

Jeff, is Tim getting cold feet yet? I'm really excited for them so I hope he isn't. Give them both a big wedding hug from me. :)

They are both very excited . There is lots of love and sentiment about this wedding but there is also an urgency to it . Ron is not in the best of health and just turned 62 so even though this is a celebration of their 32 years together its also will make things much simpler for estate planning . They have 32 years worth of co-mingled assets ... you get the picture I'm sure .

Its heartless to deny the benefits of marriage to all of us ... so we have been going around Alabama loudly discussing the wedding plans and the look on some peoples faces is priceless . We had to get documents notarized and it was fun making a show of why we needed them . We only got positive feedback, only one person clearly disapproved but kept her mouth shut and only gave us what I call the stink eye look .

You must both be well over 50.000, maybe alot more. 


I can only speak for myself, but there are certainly days when I feel over 50,000.... oh wait, you're talking about posts, not years. ;D

IIRC, Peter Staley started AIDSmeds.com in 1999 and Andy was on board from the beginning. I rocked up in early 2001. I think you were here from around 2000, yes? I know you were one of the first people I "met" here, and that was even before we had the FuseTalk forum software. I think Peter got us FuseTalk in late 2001 or early 2002. You, Andy and me are the only ones left from the pre-FuseTalk days. Don't know about you, but I miss Peter and Tim Horn, the other original member/moderator.

That's about right Ann...There was always Peter, Andy and Tim H...I found the site around 2000 and you were one of the very first people I remember.  Soon after were Jim (fiskernish and krakerjm), Jan (anniebc) Joe Killfoile, Rocky, Ric Wilke, Jonathan (JK) and Tim (Moffie) as well as Canadian guys Gregory Scott and Alan (doyourowndamndishes). Other old timers I recall were Alanbama, Tim Hunter was fairly early on, Hermie, Brian, Lisa, Emeraldize and Bailey as well.  Probably leaving some folks out, chime in someone if you too were an early bird here at aidsmeds.com.

The Church off the PCD place great store in endearments , many believe this is due to one off the early founders reaction to coming round from anesthetics , whereby he had a unstoppable urge to share the warm loving feelings he had to everyone.

We are at the casino and I won $161 on a 25 cent bet last night . I know I will lose it but it was a very good feeling to win after driving all day and night .

We were supposed to stop in Saint Louis but I felt like driving more so I ended up driving all the way here, over 14 hours of driving but we arrived ! .

Yikes! What a haul! I've driven back and forth several times from CT to MN in one day but that was over 25 years ago. Hope you guys at least split the drive.

And yikes! What a haul! $161 on a quarter. Quit now!! lol.

Its such a stationary activity too and one feels the cold more with out movement Mr Wump. One more tip in case you find yourself in a less warm climate. Although as all off us know pay attention to base layers then that shawl is just there to be worked .
