Happy Anniversary, Baby


Angry Joyce and I found out a short time back, that when we got married 11 years ago today, her brothers made a wager on how long we would last. One gave us six months, one gave us one year, and one gave us three years. How did we last longer?

It is simple really.
1. We are both too stubborn to give up.
2. I want to keep all my shit not half of it.
3. Whoever hauls ass has to take the kids.

I am always kidding Angry Joyce that if she ever hauls ass then their will be a line of women two deep all the way around the block waiting for a chance with me and she is always kidding me that she is the only one that could put up with my shit.

I can guess who is closer to being right but I never want to know. It took almost thirty years to find her. I haven't got the stamina to hold out another thirty years to find another person who can put up with my shit for a prolonged period of time.

And that brings me to:
Happy Anniversary Baby. Got You On My Mi-ind.

Happy Day to you and the Mrs. Hubby and I will have 15 this year. We constantly laugh about how now we just have too much invested to start over. Truth is, I kinda like him too! Please don't tell him though. He might get all cocky and think he's got some power or something - can't have that! ;-)

You must be in love to break out the Little River Band... ;)

starbender said...

Happy Anniversary, guys! I hope Johnny Wadd and I can stay together as long as you guys have and more.

Andie D. said...

You pretty much nailed on the head why ANY couple stays together. I'm celebrating my 10th in August. Hm. Celebrating?

Sugardaddy said...

happy aniversary. i am creeping up on 35 this year with my Current Wife. this is the same woman who got upset at our reception when i introduced her to my friends as my first wife.
my old man is a lawyer and my brother a judge. they like her better than me. therefore i think i might be hanging around a bit longer
(that is of course until HG gives in)

So romantic...

michaelm said...

I can relate, dude.
I am blessed as well with a woman that puts up with my crap.
Give Joyce one for me.
A kiss, that is.
Many more years of bliss, Fuzz (& Angry Joyce)...

angel, jr: Thanks!

mark: Thanks, I appreciate it.

jamie: I outgushed myself on my Valentines Day Post. So I kept this one a bit less mushy.

vic: I know just what you mean.

bruce: I was wondering who would catch that. I don't know whether you should be proud of that or not. But congrats on doing so.

:P fuzzbox said...

starbender: You and she are most likely right. Now that we have made 11 I suppose the next hurdle will be when the kids move out.


phred: Thanks, hopefully we will last for many more.

andie: The tenth is great. It feels like beating the odds.

sugardaddy: I introduced Angry Joyce as my first wife for years. She never saw the humor in it either.

whoami:That's me the hopeless romantic.

michael: God bless 'em! I would probably be lost without Angry Joyce. She has hid all my shit.

Happy Anniversary, happy anniversary, happy anniversary, happpy anniversary!!!!
Ol Man and I have decided that there will be no divorce - just a gun fight!
He doesn't know it, but I changed the rules - he gets a gun and no ammo - I get a gun and ammo :)
Isn't it just like a woman to change the rules and not tell the poor guy ;)
Oh, and he introduces me as his 4th wife, and I introduce him as my 2nd husband :) which is true - and we have been together for over 12 yrs :) We are both just too tired to go separate ways at this point.

:P fuzzbox said...

pixie: Thanks a bunch from both of us.

utarra: Thanks and thanks for popping in. I would be happy to leave a message.

ol' lady: I know the tiredness well.

Happy Anniversary to you both! My friend from college once pointed out that men, when they are in a relationship, tend to get cocky (uh huh huh, I said "cocky") and think they can get other girls easily. However, when those same men are single, they suddenly realize how difficult get a girlfriend/wife is.

I am glad you figured it out before you blew it and lost a great wife. ;)

Believe me, I'm in the same boat. I have a great wife, and despite my stubborn ways, I just learn to suck it up and be grateful I am not single at my age or with a crazy woman. :D

Leigh said...

Happy Anniversary!! Wow and you are still laughing together, that is so awesome. Enjoy each other and have a great day.

siren said...
