Default Been away a long time

Been a long time since I've posted, hope everyone is ok....and that maybe some if you old timers remember me.

My wife, son (God...16? Is that possible?) and I are still together. Who says internet relationships are doomed to failure🤔?

Well, I'll poke my nose back a bit more in the future.

Not me - our 20th wedding anniversary is coming up in less than two weeks.

Anyway, welcome back.

It's like the week of the undead on here. In a good way.

Welcome back IP. My internet relationship lasted 15 years, only ended by bloody cancer.

Mike,
So sorry for your loss. I'm sure the memories of 15 wonderful years of love will never fade.

You have a very patient wife

So do I. Fifteen years in November, if she doesn't kick me out before then.

Hello, again, IP

So glad to see your smiling face. Yes, some internet marriages do work out. We will be 22 years come September. Have 5 grandchildren now. A 22 yo in Nova Scotia, an 11 yo in New York, and a 14, 11, 9 yo here in MS.

I bet she is nowhere near as patient as my hubby. That man deserves a medal for putting up with me for all these years.
