    Congratulations, Paintsmered

    Just in time for the trade deadline, it has been reported that Paintsmered will be entering into a long-term contract. Details as to length have not been released, but one source close to the negotiations indicated it will have a clause that says "until death do us part" - presumably a mutual option!

    Congratulations on your engagement, Paintsmered!

    Thanks, guys.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Congratulations paint. it's been nice knowing you.

    Appropriate time for some humor....

    I tell ya, my wife was never nice. On our first date, I asked her if I could give her a goodnight kiss on the cheek - she bent over!

    My wife is an earth sign. I'm a water sign. Together we make mud.

    A husband is what is left of the lover after the nerve is extracted

    I haven't spoken to my wife in years. I didn't want to interrupt her.

    Why does a woman work ten years to change a man's habits and then complain that he's not the man she married?

    My wife and I have the secret to making a marriage last. Two times a week, we go to a nice restaurant, a little wine, good food. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.

    My wife has a black belt in shopping.

    My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea.

    My wife is on a new diet. Coconuts and bananas. She hasn't lost weight, but boy can she climb a tree!

    Re: Congratulations, Paintsmered

    I told some folks yesterday who were at my office about when I had the chance to buy the Johnny VanderMeer ball I have. My bank manager had one and told me that had some more left from a fundraiser VanderMeer had attended here in town. I called my wife from work and asked, "Can I buy a Johnny VanderMeer autographed ball for $25?" "Sure," she said, "as long as I can buy something frivolous too." I told these folks that I love that I have a wife who didn't say "Who" - she knew who this was.

    A year or so ago, I had some tickets to the Reds game against the Cubs that I brought to Mass that Sunday because I figured I'd find somebody who could use them. Paint was in town and at church with his girlfriend (now fiancee) and I asked him if they wanted them. He asked if she wanted to go and she said sure, that she wanted to see this Cub fan thing up close. And she did agree the following week that it wasn't hype about how jerky they are. You have to like that!

    I got to meet paint's soon-to-be earlier this summer when I came down and we all met up for a game. She came across as very charming young lady.
