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 .

Moved threads are also responsible for me being the Top Topic Starter on the Stats page. I always try to delete the moved threads once the OP knows where it went, but I forget to sometimes.

I've also spent over a year logged onto this forum - 414 days, 20 hours and 43 minutes - as of when I opened my stats page a few minutes ago. I need to get a life. ;D


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 .

How wonderful that Tim and Ron are getting married!  And that you can be their maid of honor witness.

Will we get to see you on an episode of Say Yes to the Dress?

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.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

I honestly do not know how you have kept at it this long . I feel like I have a million post in AM I already but its far from that .

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.

Keep on truckin' Ann and you other good people.
