7

August 18 is one of my favourite dates of the year. It marks the day in 1998 when Kerry and I officially became a couple. And I mean officially РI asked her out with a customized resum̩, handed to her in my tumbledown bachelor apartment on Evanson Street. Seven years later we have a home together, and on this day I couldn't possibly be a happier person.

Happy seven years, Kerry. I love you very much.

– Jeope

Well Kerry and Jeope congratulations on being officially together for 7 years.

Although I only know Jeope through his whity quips on the forum, his great design work and his blog - he seems like a pretty swell guy. So I am going to draw the conclusion that you Kerry must be pretty swell "special lady friend".

So anyway here's to many happy years in your new home.

Hey Howie

Congratulations!!! We just celebrated our 8th anniversary a week ago so I can relate. ;)
It's so nice to hear happy marriage stories because most of the time all we hear is about the bad ones.

Have a happy happy day and may you celebrate many more years together.

Jeope,

Congrats to you and your better half! Seven years and celebrating. How cool is that? May you have seventy-seven ++ more! I'm always lookin' out for the dr's advice and opinions on the forum :)

Hey Jeope & Kerry,
Congratulations! I hope you guys have a wonderful and memorable celebration. Seven years is quite a milestone!

Hey Jeope ("Jopey"... heh heh) and Kerry,

I was going to make some lame joke about voting for you in 2004, Kerry, but I'm not. Or did I just?

Oh well, congrats on your, um...7th... anniversary. My wife and I will celebrate our 12th this October, and let me just say that you will definitely run out of things to buy each other with each passing year. So maybe just take the day off and bake a flan... but what do I know?

Lucky number 7.

Life, to me, is like a quiet forest pool, one that needs a direct hit from a big rock half-buried in the ground. You pull and you pull, but you can't get the rock out of the ground. So you give it a good kick, but you lose your balance and go skidding down the hill toward the pool. Then out comes a big Hawaiian man who was screwing his wife beside the pool because they thought it was real pretty. He tells you to get out of there, but you start faking it, like you're talking Hawaiian, and then he gets mad and chases you...

What this has to do with 7, I don't know.

Congrats from one Canuck to another!

Congrats on 7 years. May you have many more wonderful years together.

Patti said...

Awww, this is so cool!

Happy anniversary, Dr. C & K. I've really enjoyed your collaborative HOWiezine art - that little glimpse of your togetherness makes me smile and I'm happy that you found each other and wish you many 7s to come.

Mmmmmmmmmmm, flan..........

Howie Mommy said...

Grats and hope there's no need for Viagra!

Go Kayak said...

Congrats on 7 years you two!

I know it's hard to believe, but HOWies are real people. I've met a few in person. We are not like any other electronic community out there because we really care about each other.

So as long as Jeope is online with us, you don't have to worry, 'cause if he messes up, we'll rat on him. (just kidding)

Hope you guys do something special to celebrate. :)

Christian with a Whip said...

Though you are not married - the commitment is the same - may nothing but sweet blessings come your way, in more ways than a Zine, mine and Designgrrls sharts, and above all else, a banana from the Chimpy!

A very happy anniversary to you both, no go kiss and cuddle or I'll get the Whip out! (FYI - my company's name is Whiplash Design, just in case…lol!~)

Princesa de Chocolate said...

Dear Kerry:

Your Jeope has been a design inspiration to me. I'm very thankful to his blog... It pushes me to do better. I can't believe it... 7. Indeed the lucky number. But I hope every year to come is a lucky one... 8, 9, 15, 100!

* Howie hugs to you and Jeope on this special day *

And if he ever spends too much time on the forum/blogging just throw on some lingerie... he better walk away at that point from the computer!

melissahead said...

Woohoo!!! Congrats you two! Wow, seven years, that's awesome! Rob and I are almost at our five years. :-) I sure hope you're enjoying the special day, although you guys probably make everyday special!

RDQLUS (Stevie G.) said...

Well congrats! You guys handled 7 years like Benadryl...no itch! I keed, I keed...great job you two, because it IS work and most don't acknowledge that. Love is easy, making it last is the task.

I think this is only the second or third time I've left a blog comment, but anything for the Jeopster!

Happy 7th Kerry and Jeope! Dr C, keep that great sense of humor and you two will sail through another 7 in bliss. My husband and I are celebrating our 25th by going to Ireland this September.

Many more happy years to you both!

David Snider said...

Kerry, 7 years is too long to be with the same guy. I invite you to run away with me and never look back...what? You mean you love him? Are you serious? Come on! You gotta be kidding me! It's the birds isn't it. Your a bird lover so you like being with someone who likes birds...ok! I understand. Well, I guess I should say congratulations and wish you both the best! May you have many many more!

Pez said...

Congrats y'all. Heading towards 8 years next month, and the time has just flown by. Have fun on your special day, and don't do anything I wouln't do!

JJ said...

Congratulations from a Microtel on the road somewhere east (not sure where exactly). HOWies are real and sweet, but yes, we are still a geeky online forum who support our online pals.

shannon said...

Here is to another 70 years! You guys are very lucky to have found one another! Have a great day!

Loren said...

^ I thought I could edit that last post. Instead it says I deleted it. Oh well, life is much easier on the HOW forum.

Anyway, Congrats on being together for seven years. It is good to see a happy couple.

devon said...

Pantone1817U said...

congrats on your big day! Hey Kerry, I liked your poem in the black and white howiezine. Your work compliments each other very well. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful and memorable day together, enjoy!

devon said...

*i cannot believe x-tian mentioned "sharts" on this love filled thread* aw crap, now I mentioned sharts. forget those.... and go drink champagne and eat chocolates!

oh yeah, and make sure he treats you to something REALLY SPECIAL today!! none of that hallmark crap, we know how talented he is......

jlittle said...

Congrats, Jeope and Kerry! My husband and I are in our 7th year together as well. :-)

Kerry, thanks for being so understanding of the time Jeope spends with us HOWies. It's obvious from your HOWiezine contribution and the way Jeope talks about you that you two are a wonderful team.

Many happy returns!
Janet

Figures the Americans get to the party first. (Dibs on the empties.)

Seven years? Congratulations or tribulations? Wait a sec... so you've just been significantating? Hm... does that mean the seven-year itch is just a seven-year... rash?

Ah well, happy anniversary and a wine-filled congratulations from the Niagara Region of Ontario to the true center of this great country.

And DOC, a romantic celebration does not include six hours in the rain holed up in a duckblind, clutching a warm can of Dr. Pepper while waiting to catch a glimpse of a Wilson’s Phalarope.

Now, make that a bottle of Quail's Gate 2002 Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon... now you're talking.

Congratulations to both of you. I'm coming up on my 2 year...which would make you two pro's in my eyes.

Keep loving each other and remember...no one said it would be easy.

And Kerry...you're welcome at HOW too!

Congrats to the both of you on reaching year number 7! Y'all are the coolest couple I know.

Dave said...

Looks like I'm a little late for the party, but I'm here! On vacation last week...

I'm a little confused, though. Is this 7 years since you met or 7 years married? If not married, since no one else has done so, when are ya gonna make her honest, Jeop? I'll offer only this bit of encouragement if you aren't married yet (if you are I'm sure you'll agree): Marriage only takes what you have in the relationship and makes it more so. Fortunately, we had something wonderful, and getting married has just made it more so...

Mrs. Dave and I are coming up on 10 years married Oct. 28 and 16 years together (we was jus' kids when we met). It was kind of amazing when I realized that before long, I'll have spent more of my life with her than my entire life before I met her. Man, I'm getting old...;-)

But really, congrats!

Dave
