Make it good:

A little consistency, please,..

And, believe it or not, I'm happy for you.

t-man said...

You're celebrating by smoking salvia?

Congratulations and best wishes to Meadehouse.

Pogo said...

Godspeed on two years together.
May the next year be wonderful.

bearing said...

May you have many more years!

I've always loved that picture of Meade reading the NYT with the news article about you two in it. On many levels.

Pete said...

Happy anniversary!

PatCA said...

Happy anniversary!

John said...

Congratulations!

Christopher in MA said...

Oh - the marriage! I thought it was three years blogging (shows you how attentive I am).

Congratulations and many more happy years.

edutcher said...

By all means, Happy Anniversary.

I had to catch up when you two said the vows because The Blonde and I were in MI near Mackinaw (one of The Blonde's favorite places), so I'm glad to wish a very happy third here and now and many more to come.

m stone said...

Congratulations!

Second year is the hardest?

Tank said...

Yay.

Congrats.

Tyrone Slothrop said...

And many more. You guys have awesome synergy.

Ignorance is Bliss said...

Congratulations! Best wishes for many more.

Congratulazioni!

Irene said...

Auguri! Sveikinam!

All the best from me and Mr. Irene (and Mom, Baci, Rex, and--almost--Poppy).

"Chevy Volt: Still Not Selling"

CHOO! CHOO! Another unicorn bites the dust.

And if the $7,400 government rebate (taxpayer funded rebate) ever ends, this number will be zero.
Except for the Volts that Barry makes the government (taxpayers) buy.

Quilly_Mammoth said...

Happy anniversary! May this just be a small portion of the years to come.

Happy Anniversary Meadhouse!

Pastafarian said...

Has it really been 3 years? It seems like a few months ago to me. Ah, the wonders of raging alcoholism.

Congratulations to both of you.

traditionalguy said...

What a wonderful team you make. Congratulations!

gerry said...

All the best.

Russ Wood said...

Happy anniversary. May you have many more years of growing closer to each other.

Chip S. said...

A very Happy Anniversary to you.

Apparently cotton is the traditional gift for a 2d anni, so why not call it a day at the cocktail hour and get three sheets to the wind?

AllenS said...

Happy Anniversary to you, and I wish you two well on the third year.

ndspinelli said...

If cotton is the 2nd anniversary gift, I'm reminded of my youth. I tired of the term, "On the rag" and coined, "straddling the cottons." But, this hardly seems appropriate and I probably won't sleep tonight for this venial sin.

MikeR said...

Congratulations.

grackle said...

Feliz aniversario! May there be many more.

Titus said...

Are you going to do it tonight?

I would be interested in hearing about all the sex acts. Is it just missionary or do you get a little freaky?

Where are we all going out for dindin?

Titus said...

Teacher and bad student could be kind of hot.

OMG, my password is "straties"-no shit.

Chip Ahoy said...

Happy anniversary. I'm sorry I neglected to make you a card. So my brother must share the card I made for him and posted today, he's a Christian good-hearted sharing type. It's a ridiculous penguin pop-up.

Almost Ali said...

What a nice cafe! Flowers and all!

But I'm here on serious business, to point out once again that we are a nation of men, not laws.

Here, a tweet from Twitter:

"Will the state of Florida in the person of Judge [Perry] continue to play fast and loose w/the law in their vendetta against Casey Anthony?"

bagoh20 said...

Wow! Time flies.

Congrats. Keep doing what you love, and looking for new stuff.

We appreciate you both and as a team we love ya.

Rube said...

I have been lurking here for over 5 years and I really enjoy it. But it's hard to believe that you guys have been together that long. I am very happy for both of you, you make such a wonderful pair, you compliment each other.

EDH said...

Titus said...
Teacher and bad student could be kind of hot.

How about twisted congressman and Twitter follower?

Passé at this point?

Curious George said...

Wasn't around for most of the first two, but Happy Anniversary.

Jana said...

3 years already? It feels so much more recent than that!

Congratulations to you both!

MayBee said...

Happy AnnandMeadersary!

Triangle Man said...

Well done!

Sorin said...

A little Proust on your anniversary...

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."

Best wishes for your continuing alliance.

lohwoman said...

Happy second anniversary. Enjoy your new year!

Quayle said...

All the best.

LarsPorsena said...

Seems like yesterday that we were all speculating about the purpose of that Colorado trip...Happy Anniversary.

MadisonMan said...

happy Anniversary!

pm317 said...

Congratulations!

From my graden to yours! We seem to have similar 'photographic' eyes.

MarkG said...

Happy Anniversary! After two years it's time to settle in and gain some weight.

Pianoman said...

happy anniversary you two!

Michael K said...

All the best.

The Elder said...

Happy anniversary!

Hope I get to see you soon.

Lance & Cyndi said...

Congrats!

Salamandyr said...

Happy Anniversary!

madAsHell said...

Interesting to see who shows up for the anniversary comments. I don't see J or garage or roach-viletaire.

Oh, yeah....don't let blogging get in the way of celebrating your anniversary. Best wishes.

john said...

Happy Anniversary and wishing you many many more.

Our best, from our house to meadhouse.

Rialby said...

Congrats to both of you. I'm glad you've found happiness!

Jess said...

Congratulations you two! May you celebrate many more in the years to come.

And hey, this means that it's been two years since I stopped in Madison on the way to the inlaws, and went into a Target wearing shorts!

wv: slyze - I felt like a slyze wearing shorts in Madison.

Roman said...

Congratulations, wishing everything is great in your part of the world!

roesch-voltaire said...

Congratulations may you continue to enjoy all that blooms in Madison, and may you never run out of coffee.

dick said...

May you have many many more anniversaries to share with each other. Good to see the right people have found each other.

galdosiana said...

Happy anniversary to both of you!!

Scott M said...

CONGRATS!

MamaM said...

Seems like yesterday, yet the outgrowth reveals a distinctive and multi-faceted journey marked and made real in plantings, photos, meals, songs, words and new media.

May you continue to enjoy each other and time spent together.

Will Cate said...

A very happy anniversary to you both.

Happy Anniversary and many happy returns!

Carol_Herman said...

Year #3 of the ceremony on the hill. But not of the first date! Doesn't that event also count for points?

edutcher said...

Always!

WV "nesting" (no kidding) May there be plenty of it at Meadhouse.

Robert said...

What Titus said.

Post video.

BJM said...

Team MeadeHouse extends contract; winning streak continues.

Congrats and best wishes!

ricpic said...

I don't like the word erotic or the word sensual or any of the other words for that charged essence of the passionate but the pictures you posted from your first meeting with Meade in Ohio(?) were filled with that charge. It was there in the beginning and there will only be more of what was there as it goes on. More and deeper.

It's a good thing to be happy, together. My best to you.

BT said...

Groovy!!!! Best wishes!!!!

Hazy Dave said...

To echo all the good wishes seems insufficient, but it is, after all, slightly more than the least I can do, so congratulations and continued happiness to you both.

MadisonMan said...

You know the best part of this anniversary, right?

It's that the GREEN BAY PACKERS are the World Champions!!!!

Aridog said...

Congratulations! The best for all the future years. May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be at your back ... and all that stuff.

Trooper York said...

Congratulations.

I hope you have many more happy years together.

MadisonMan said...

I mean, the first anniversary was okay and all, but who were the world champions? It certainly wasn't the Almighty Green Bay Packers. So Anniversary #2 has to be better.

Here's to the third anniversary, and the continuation of the Packers' championship reign!

Shanna said...

Congratulations to you both!

Paddy O said...

Happy Anniversary!

Chip S. said...

I question the timing.

There. Now it's a proper Althouse thread.

elcrain said...

May it be better and better as the years go by!

elcrain said...

May it be better and better as the years go by. Best wishes to you both from semi-lurker and daily reader Liz.

Peter Hoh said...

Here's to many more . . . .

michaele said...

Congrats on your 2 great years together. It had to have been pretty invigorating for the two of you as you worked as such an effective team covering the statehouse protests. We all benefited.

q12345q6789 said...

My congrats as well!
Agent Meade has performed admirably in his infiltration of one of Madison's elite voices.
Onward comrades!

I kid, of course. Happy anniversary and Happy Birthday to my Sister!

AllenS said...

Well, I just returned from a date. I was a little apprehensive, when the couple that set us up, said that she was my age, or a couple of years older.

At almost 65 years old, what the hell? So, I said yes.

I had a blast. Big time fun. And, yes alcohol was involed.

Later, I removed her bra, and her breasts fell all the way down to her waistline.

Then, she said: "I have acute angina."

And, I said: "I well, I hope so, because your breasts ain't that cute."

It went down hill after that.

Chip S. said...

AllanS, Did you get the "early bird special"?

ndspinelli said...

Allen S, Very funny! I just listened to the entire ballgame w/ your guy Ueck. He was @ his best the first inning busting LaRussa's balls[Jimmy Piersall hated him in Chicago and purposely called him "LaRusso."]. But still way too many "Err..err.err" for me.

My college speech teacher who was a tough bastard would have broke him of that. Everytime you said "Uh, Err", he threw something @ you. Usually a pen or chalk, but sometimes books.

q12345q6789 said...

... In all due seriousness though, I guess this is as good a time as any to thank you for your perspective on the days events and photographically as well...

An offer: If you want my money - from your Amazon hookup while that lasts - May I suggest a celebratory post consolidating, in list-like fashion, your favorite somethings/recommendations (memorable-movies-shared-between-you-two, Meadehouse Music Cafe', Great-Books-about-Mushrooms, etc.)
Make it a creative "feature" instead of Insty's obligatory "In the Mail..." posts. Just a brief thought.

AllenS said...

Chip,

I have no idea what the "early bird special" is.

I don't think that we do that where I live.

fleetusa said...

The New Yorker is for snobs. They will chuckle at any "pseudo-literary" turn of situation event. Especially one poking fun at Judeo-Christian tradition.

I'm sure we could put out a similar story of Algore waking up one 4th of July in the Middle East (as Prez Dim's emissary) to the driving snow storm which cancelled his charter jet home.

AllenS said...

Hey, spinelli,

Bob Uek, don't back down from nobody. I listened to the pre-game, and I'll say it again, ain't nobody better than the Uek.

Bushman of the Kohlrabi said...

Best wishes team Meadehouse!

Don't Tread 2012 said...

Happy Anniversary!!!

Rafique said...

Congrats!

Meade said...

Thank you, everyone. Seems like only yesterday we were up there on Bellyache Ridge vowing our vows amidst the mountain asters, butterflies and clouds.

I liked everything about her then and even more so now. She is a wonderful wife and friend who makes me a better man than I would be without her and she continually amuses with her wit and amazes me with her beauty.

Thanks everyone for reading and commenting. May all your good wishes return to you and yours a thousandfold.

Joe Schmoe said...

Ann, may Meade never turn on you the way he turned on McCain after the bin Laden double-tap.

How's that working out for you, Meade?

Dan said...

congrats!!!

As my whimsy leads me.. said...

Congratulations and best wishes for many, many more blessed years!
