Stalag 17


















We're going to do what every young n' sexy couple does on their seventeenth anniversary: sit on the couch and watch DVDs while taking turns yelling at the kids to shut the fuck up infomercials until 3am in tribute to the world's greatest snake oil salesman that didn't hold public office.

As for the next seventeen years, what awaits?



I kid. Probably. Though if I suddenly disappear from the internets, well, draw your own conclusions.

OK, I think we have mourned enough the past week. My new mantra...no more mourning. So just stay here and we will all be happy! :)

La Belette Rouge said...

Happy anniversary!!!It seems that He-weasel and I married the same year you married your wife, the Victoria Secret super model. I wish you 17 years more filled with poetry inspiring partnership.

Dusty said...

Well, well, well Randal. Congrats to your better half for putting up with yo ass for seventeen years.

If you disappear..I will assume your body parts have been distributed all over town via manhole covers.

I will of course mourn you..sort of. ;p

okjimm said...

OK. Gonna do Dusty one better....well,well,well & well... and to quote Gomer Pyle... Shazam!

I'll buy you both a beer tonight...expensive and imported. & I'll drink for you, too!!!

Good Stuff, buddy!

Randal Graves said...

themom, that's entirely up to my chainsaw-wielding sometimes-better-half.

LBR, if she keeps being Secrety, we'll get along just fine until she finally gets bored with ole Randal.

dusty, I'd be offended if you DID mourn me in lieu of making tasteless jokes at my corpse's expense!

okjimm, you'll drink it too? Now that's being a real pal!

Don't leave the nets but DO kiss a nurse in Times Square.

sunshine said...

Happy Anniversary!!
What a coincidence. I'll be married 17 years in just a week or so myself!

Wishing you both all the best and many happy years to come. :)
((Hugs))
Laura
P.S. Your plans for celebration sound quite similar to ours.

Christopher said...

17th anniversary?

You're a credit to your sexual orientation, Randal. Most of our het friends divorced long before the 10th year of marriage.

You've got Jim and I beat by a year.

Sherry Peyton said...

Congratulations! Your wife must be a saint. Being one myself, I'm quite sure of this. Have about 17 more at least!

Randal Graves said...

dean, just don't tell the missus.

sunshine, our plans were going to be even naughtier, but we decided against a game of Risk.

christopher, we were almost destroyed by gay marriage a few times, but we soldiered on!

sherry, how come everyone assumes that she's the saint? She's far more psycho than I, trust me.

puddy said...

mucho mazel mr. graves... the wife and i will have gathered ourselves 5 of our own in 3 days... i figure that gives us another 12 til we've reached your level of matrimonial bliss.

S.W. anderson said...

Randal, congratulations to you and your missus. So many couples give it up and split the sheets early and often these days. The real troupers stick around to fight another day.

Seriously, it's a good thing. May you and your wife regularly feel and express the wonderful, spontaneous amorousness immortalized in that epic LIFE photo you put atop this post. Preferably with each other. ;)

Tom Harper said...

Congrats on making it to the Big One Seven. Did you two play Slayer at your wedding reception?

Übermilf said...

He won't leave the 'nets.

He doesn't have the guts.

I can't believe she hasn't smothered you in your sleep yet. She must need more life insurance on you.

Liberality said...

getting to 17 just means you're closer to 20 and believe me, once you go past 20, the years just seem to fly by.

happy A day to ya both!

susan said...

So long as you're not reenacting 'War of the Roses' by now you'll likely do okay for the next 17 and more. Congrats and please don't disappear.

Randal Graves said...

puddy, I never said anything about bliss, don't put words in my mouth.

SWA, oh man, I haven't heard that in years, and then only snippets!

Spontaneity? At the expense of routine? Surely you jest! ;-)

tom, there might've been a power chord or three.

übermilf, what else am I gonna do at work, work?

And why do you think I sleep on a heavily-guarded couch? For the comfort? Why so many rhetorical questions?

liberality, so this dragging is only temporary? ;-)

susan, just War of the Dustpan. It's your turn, no it's your turn, go clean the bathroom, fuck off, grumble, rinse, repeat.

Nunly said...

Congrats on 17 years! What do you owe your marital longevity? The poetry? The romance? The gory, bloody, anniversary cards you send her every year?

Randal Graves said...

Laziness. Trying to find someone new? Too much fucking work!

Nunly said...

Randal- (In my best imitation of a Jewish housewife)..."May every man be as lazy as you." ;-)

Dr. Zaius said...

Happy anniversary! Did you buy a Ronco Rotisserie?

Lisa said...

Happy Anniversary to you and Mrs. Randal. May you share many more happy years and chances to holler at your kids.

Freida Bee, MD said...

Randal, Happy anniversary! I don't assume Mrs. Graves is a saint. I figure she's gotta be bonkers to... uh, oh, give the lucky lady a belated feel up on my behalf.

I know you just had a birthday or are about to. Fess up.

Non Je Ne Regrette Rien said...

god. I can understand stayin' in, but no nekkid twister or nuthin? jeebeezus! (oh and joyeux and all that ...)

disa said...

I love it ! Very creative ! That's actually really cool Thanks.
