Your love story has given everyone who has visited here much joy.

The best of everything to you both.

Irene said...

Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks to you both for sharing your story. It brings a smile to this household.

P.S. Thanksgiving kisses from "Baci" and "Rex."

blake said...

All of it?!

The Swine Flu? The Great Recession? The guy in striped shorts and a plaid shirt?

All of it?

How Zen!

Ah Pooh said...

Two bookends with stories to tell, laughs to share, and love that delights.

Bob said...

Best wishes to the two of you, also.

Elliott A said...

You two always look so happy!

Happy Thanksgiving from some other Althouses!

Kirby Olson said...

Hey, who took that photo? Nice photo! I hope there are many many more holidays with you two happy together.

Surenna P. said...

Best wishes to Althouse + Meade on your first Thanksgiving of wedded bliss.

And to Althousians everywhere.

wv: cessesse wow, that seems non-random.

Ann Althouse said...

"Hey, who took that photo?"

A stranger saw me taking a picture of Meade and offered to take our picture. I don't know who he was but he was pretty nice and enthusiastic about our kissing. This is one of several kiss pictures. It's the one Meade liked best.

blake said...

Aw, sweet!

Robin said...

There are several more pictures of Meade? More kissing pictures? Hmm, I feel only one picture being posted is a little skimpy. I need more vicarious happiness or something, because these little glimpses of Althouse + Meade-life make me grin and grin and grin. Happy Turkey Day!

Bob_R said...

Many thanks to both of you. It has been fun to spend some time here.

BJM said...

Let's not forget a special thanks to all who serve. Who put their lives on the line. Who sacrifice so that we may sleep peacefully in our beds and enjoy friends and family today.

ricpic said...

Those pathetic guys at Roissy straining at game. Meade stands there as a lesson to all of 'em.

"You love me, baby? Naturally. It's my due."

Irene said...

"[S]everal kiss pictures."

I wanna die with you [ ] on the streets tonight/ in an everlasting kiss.

My sentiments, exactly, especially those in harm's way. Stay safe!!!

Tyrone Slothrop said...

Thank you, Professor

This blog obviously takes a lot of work and persistence, and keeps many of us from standing on street corners with unintelligible placards.

wv-- driatats: one more atat than a duotat.

Robert said...

Down with cynicism. Up with love.

Ralph L said...

It's the one Meade liked best
That's because he's knocked you back on your heels.

Ritmo Brasileiro said...

I'm thankful that Althouse let such a cool guy into her life and that he now has a shot at sensibly influencing her!

Ritmo Brasileiro said...

Have a mellow Thanksgiving!

wv: bunbect.

I don't know, but it sounds like a hell of a cool word. Perhaps more ideas on that one to follow.

s1c said...

And a Happy Thanksgiving to you newlyweds.

Joan said...

Awwwww, how delightful. Sweet but not the kind of sweet that makes your teeth hurt.

Thank you for sharing your joy with us and extending your good wishes. I wish all the best for you and Meade as you continue your life together.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all

Roman said...

Happy Thanksgiving! You make a great looking couple!!

Gary said...

Thank you for the message Ann & Meade. And much more to you too.

May all have had a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

Chase said...

I'm thankful that Ann hosts a blog that allows all of us to comment so often and so vociferously without deleting our political views, which cannot be uttered about even the top 4 political blogs. Thank you Ann for that.

I'm thankful that Ann and Meade found and so obviously enjoy each other.

I am thankful for the men and women of our armed forces, particularly for our son who is a Marine who cannot be with us this Thanksgiving except in spirit. God bless them all.

I am thankful for my wonderful, outrageous, always forgiving family.

And, also near the top of my list, I am again thankful for the connection that the blog "Althouse" provides in a word that too often doesn't make sense. Happy Thanksgiving to all the regulars here, from the mighty erudite pallladian to the winsome freeman hunt and all of the wonderful ones ( even those I spar with regularly) who's names I sadly cannot remember after several Thanksgiving mimosa's.

May God richly bless you and yours this day!

Hector Owen said...

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and a hope for health and good fortune to come.

wv = turna. Another turna the wheel.

dreams said...

Happy Thanksgiving back atcha Althouse.

jjm said...

Hey you guys. Get a Room!
Happy Thanksgiving.

Thomas said...

Happy Turkey Day to Althouse and Meade and all the commenters here.

wv: hypecore: Pretty good description of people like Obama.

JAL said...

Thank you both for a fascinating year. It's been my pleasure to be here.

May we all at Althouse have many blessings in the coming year.

amba said...

Awww. I'm dumbstruck by your happiness. It beats the odds.

Many, many more.

JAL said...

Chase -- please tell your son "Thank you" from our family. We admire him tremendously.

(And we're Army!)

God bless you guys.

Henry said...

There are bloggers and there is Althouse. Thank you.

Rialby said...

God bless you both. Glad you could find happiness together.

Freeman Hunt said...

And much love back from all of us. Your ongoing creation of this place is greatly appreciated by all.

Except maybe by those caught in the vortex.

Golden West said...

Wishing you both all the best.

Kev said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Althouse and Meade! Yours is one of the best stories in all of blogdom

And all the best to my fellow commenters; may this be a day of joy for all.

wv: glitoro; a really sparkly bull?

Beth said...

We're thankful for a year of good weather here in New Orleans.

Chase, I'm thankful all my family's current and past service members are home this year. I wish your son the best.

And I'm thankful for the oyster dressing and boudin currently heating up for my plate of evening leftovers. Yum.

Althouse and Meade - it's good to share in your happiness.

Anton said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Meade and Ann!

Ann Althouse said...

Thank you everyone. Life is beautiful.

EDH said...

Thankful, I'll bet you are Althouse.

Um, looking carefully at that photo, I just have to say, Meade, be careful going through airport security.

"Hello Cleveland!"

wv-"mingle"

wv-"batickis" = I'm batickis, no I'm batickis

Mimi said...

That smile on Meade's face is worth a thousand words!

(It looks like 'I'm such a lucky bastard! - how did I get here?!')

Happy Thanksgiving!

Greybeard said...

I want to have a beer summit with both of you 'cause I don't think I have ever disagreed with Meade, and I really would like to probe your melon about your vote in that last election.
This is a delightful story and I am thankful to have watched it unfold.

bearbee said...

Tourists!

Your feet are bigger than Meadmans.

Roux said...

You have a lot to be thankful for.

I'm thankful for my family and my friends. I really thankful that I'm able to support my family in such tough times.

William said...

It is said that romantic love is the confluence of the affectional and the sensual. This picture is an illustration of that. Under your feet are parallel lines that will never meet. But you break the symnetry of those lines with a moment of clumsy, passing embrace. It is good to see that you're getting in a little white water rafting before the currents sweep you out to sea.

Andy said...

Larry, you are an inspiration to Carl Deans everywhere!

Freeman Hunt said...

I didn't have time to read the thread when I commented before because I was out of town.

Thanks, Chase!

PatCA said...

Hope you had a delightful first Thanksgiving together. We watched A Man for All Seasons, and now I know who Meade reminds me of: Paul Scofield!
