BS: Congratulations, Doug R

Subject: BS: Congratulations, Doug R
From: McGrath of Harlow

Just in case people missed the thread in which it occurred, here is a quote from a post by Doug that deserves to be brought to the attention of Mudcatters generally (inckuding the benighted souls who don't like cats and dogs):

"But then, last month, I married a wonderful lady who had a minature Poodle (Penny) and a minature white Schnauzer (Emma). I'm hooked again."

So best wishes to you and her Doug - and don't you let wedded bliss turn you too mellow...

Congratulations, Doug. I hope you and your new bride will enjoy all the happiness and years together that you could want. But tell her you'll still need to spend some time here on Mudcat. <g>

Well, danged, Dougie! Congratulations, my friend. I hope you and the Mrs. many, many years of marital bliss...

Now if you be good to them dogs, she'll probably not run yer butt off. Them womenz just love men who pay attention to their pets, though I've been workin' on Emma to bite ya'! Awww, jus' funnin' wid ya'.... It's the other dog, Penny, Iz been workin' on...

Hey, put the wife on the horn.....

"Hi, Mrs. Doug.... Ahhhh, yeah Doug is kinda cute, I guess, but he's a danged knothead! Did you know that when you married him?"

&^*&%((^!*^_(*_)(&_+)()_*!^%&^......

I didn't think so... My condolensces....

No cat in the world would scare these ladies, Chanty.

We had a civil ceremony here in the states, then flew to Ireland and had a Wedding Blessing ceremony at Christ Church in Clifden, Conemarra, County Galway. Talk about sewed up!

Thanks again for the good wishes!

Now, back to politics!

From: DougR

SINSULL: Thank you. My wife's name is Lucinda, but is called Cindy. Just like in the song. I believe that she votes, primarily, for Democrats. I shall be attempting to persuade her to do otherwise in future elections of course. I believe it is called, "conversion." :>)

Lucinda - that's a nice name - Cindy-Lou backwards.

And no doubt she'll be doing the same to bring you round. Otherwise you could both agree to balance each other, and go on holiday instead of voting when there's an election.

Another good man done gone! Congratulations, Doug, I hope she deserves you. (Ignore these other guys making jokes, I meant that as a compliment.)

A funny story -- when my father's brother remarried at the age of 70 he told my father there were a few things he didn't like about his new bride, and would my father tell her. DON'T DO THAT, DOUG!


All the best and GOOD LUCK.

This morning I pointed out that the Fox News Network would soon be airing Fox News Sunday. Cindy said, "What's for dinner?"

I think that Guest's (Latin) remark above was, "Don't allow the corrupt ones to moderate you." Must have been aimed at Lucinda (pretty name!). Congrats and many, many happy years together.

And, ahhh, just what is for dinner? Hope it ain't yer special, Stoufer's mac-n-cheeze...

Awww, jus' funnin' wid ya. I'm sure yer a great cook.

Ahhhh, jus' a thought. I know yer a sensitive kinda guy. Hey, not too sensitive, mind you but, ahhh, sensitive. Now Dr. Phil says that when "Mama ain't happy, noone's happy" so I reckon it wouldn't hurt you to let Cindy watch somethin' other than Fox now and then. Variety is the spice of life, you know... It'll keep things, ahhhh, fresh...

Try it. Hey, you can use earplugs if yer scared that watchin' CBS or NBC might get ya searchin' ebay for a copy of Mao's Red Booik...

GREAT ZOT!!!!


I too was gone and missed the whole thing!!!! Obviously this woman is a saint!!!

Doug, please let her know she has free access to the NYCFTTS as she will need it after living with you. We'll arrange for a special suite of rooms anytime she feels the need and knowing you I have a feeling we'll need to keep them on permanent reserve for her.

Cindy, I'd like to tell you that Doug gets better over time like a fine wine, but he doesn't. Notice how he just sits there drooling and babbling complete non-sensical rhetoric (that's the Republican Party Platform if you were curious). I hate to say this, but that's about as good as it gets. Come see us at the NYCFTTS and we'll keep you going and your spirits up....or at least send you on your way with a case of suitable spirits. Anyway.......CONGRATS!!!!!!.......I hope.......

Thank you, again, all of you for your kind words of congratulations. I've been working on her but I think she still does not share my enthusiam for GWB.

Nope, forget that thread, Ringer.

We had a great "first" Christmas together (I fully expected Cindy to give me the unabridged biography of GWB for Christmas but settled for a super globe of the world mounted in a handsome Walnut stand which she assembled herself). She said if I was going to argue with you folks about the war in Iraq I should at least know where Iraq is. She also gave me an ice cream maker so if any of you have any favorite recipes using Splenda instead of sugar, send 'em along to me, okay?

Happy New Year everyone!
