Well isn't she the lucky one. I thought I noticed a smile in your voice of late.

Hey! I got a great idea! A June honeymoon in the Emerald Isles at the upcoming Wordapalooza. Yeah, we could all bunk together and save a buck! (See Rhuby and Rubrick for details).

Congratulations Alex.
Congratulations Misses Future Williams, I'm sure you verify what we all know here -- Alex Williams has very good taste.

Congratulations, Alex! May your love and happiness be everlasting. Found a little something from my book of quotations, for the occassion:

The voice that breathed oer Eden,
That earliest wedding-day,
The primal marriage blessing,
It hath not passed away.
- Holy Matrimony (1857 hymn), John Keble,1792-1866
English clergyman; leader of the Oxford Movement

Re: No details or specifics yet to provide.

Don't you think you ought to find out? do you know anything about your bride to be?
like, is she a wordee too? or are you keeping your addiction here a secret?

Congratulations, Alex!

you've given this single gal hope: Hey, some of them DO get engaged! ("them" being the good ones!)

Happy news - may you share a long and blissful life together!

...she's a mail-order bride.

WOW! How much postage did it cost to mail her?

Congratulations.

The discussions below, though, remind me of a cartoon I have hanging up. A man is talking to a man sitting at a computer: "You married someone you met on the internet? Cool. I'd like to meet her."

The groom replies, "So would I, we're trying to arrange it now."

This is, of course, near ad dear to my heart because my beloved Peggy and I met on the internet.

my son met his wife over the internet, they both posted to the same sites(usergroup sites) , and she liked his web page...(now down, and say a word of praise, otherwise i would be referring to it every week!)

and we've had our own internet match up here, too...
