twenty years is a long time ...

... but not long enough to tell you how much you mean to me.

Twenty years is a long time,
but not long enough to begin to understand the wonders of your fine, keen mind.

Twenty years is a long time, yet it seems like mere moments since we began this wondrous journey together.

You are a visionary, you make things happen. While I scrabble about in the dust, tinkering with minutiae, you soar through the stratosphere, visualizing the big magnificent picture. We make a good team that way.

Happy Anniversary, my darling. The past twenty years have been a blast. I can only imagine that the next twenty, and the next twenty after that, will be glorious.


And of course I cannot let the day go by without wishing the magnificent Mr. Thomas Edward Yorke all the best on his 40th birthday.

Shine on, Thom. You are just getting started.

Happy anniversary to the both of you crazy kids.

Gifted Typist said...

Hey, This is also my anniversary of first commenting on your blog. It was your anniversary post last year!

Just think, you got married on Thom's 20th b'day.

Happy anniversary to all of us!

Stephanie said...

Happy Anniversary!

Did you get a presale copy of Matt Good's live album?

I can't wait for our 20th! We had our 12 this year.

Happy anniversary, zombies!

And happy birthday to that freaky-looking mess of a dude with the wonky eye. Whoever the heckness he is.

Allison said...

Happy Anniversary! 20 years is a long time to have it so good.

Sean Wraight said...

Congratulations to you and both of your 'hirsute' fellas!

Twenty years is a great accomplishment. The fact that you two are still amazed by each other testimony to the extraordinary goodness therein. Seeing that is what it's all about Barb!

Here's to keeping it fun for the next twenty!


Will said...

Many congratulations - it was so wonderful to meet the both of you when you were in San Francisco (and the resident offspring, as well). You both are certainly a inspiration as a couple. Here's to twenty more and twenty more after that and so on.


Happy Big 2-0 Anniversary!!!

Crack open a bottle of the bubbly and toast yourselves!

It's nice to be married to one of the good guys!

Hmmm how very celestine prophecy that you married on Thom's birthday.

Hey, Happy Anniversary guys. Yes that is a milestone. Many, many, many more:)

BeckEye said...

You got married on Thom's birthday?? That's pretty awesome.


Remi said...

Happy Anniversary.

Bridget Jones said...

Many thanks,Dr M, we try to keep the craziness to a reasonable level.

It's anniversaries all round, Gifted! Believe it or not, we didn't even plan to get married on Thom's 20th birthday. I didn't even know him then.

I did NOT, Stephanie! I must remedy that as soon as humanly possible.

Thanks, Justrun, so far so good.

Once you've made it past a dozen, you can handle anything, Tanya!

Thanks, Mister Anchovy, it feels pretty special.

Thanks, Mel, we're going out for a fancy schmancy dinner tomorrow night.

That is one fine freaky looking mess with a wonky eye, if I ever saw one, BAP.

Thanks, Al, we pride ourselves on being fine looking zombies.

It's true,JustA, I keep expecting someone to say I have to give half of it back now.

Thanks a lot, Sean, I guess it makes time fly by a lot faster when you have a lot of respect and admiration for your spouse.

That's so sweet, Will, it was so great to meet you and Hillary too. I can certainly picture you two still together and still cute in 20 years.

It was not even intentional, Urban, we didn;t even know the lad at the time, but it fits right in with our tradition of cramming ALL our holidays into one weekend in the fall.

Thanks, Bruno, we have carved the notches into our belt for this one.

We really should have gotten Thom to be our ring bearer or something, Beckeye. Wouldn't he have been adorable?

Thanks, Remi!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oops, missed you there,Bridget, thanks a lot. (How did you know about my birthday?)

Dale said...

Cue the music -- you've only just beguuuuun! Excellent!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I wonder if the Carpenters will ever achieve that retro cool that ABBA did, Dale?

Gifted Typist said...

You didn't know Thom on his 20th b'day? I don't believe that

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Unbelievable, but true, Gifted.

phlegmfatale said...

Ah, bless you both on your 20th. You're teh ossumest couple, ever!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

We're not as cute as we used to be, Phlegmmy, but we make up for it in eccentricity.
