    You’re grappling way out of your weight class.

    • Kevin Levin Nov 20, 2011

      Don’t think that I don’t know it.

    Or as it also can be said “Dude! You outpunted your coverage!!”

    Well done, sir, well done.

    But I have to disagree about one point….I married the most beautiful woman in the world 23 years ago!

    Sincerely, congratulations to you both.

    Congratulations to both of you. Having a soulmate is an important part of a happy and produtive life.

    Jersey has beaches? Not covered by boardwalks and oil tanks?

    Oh, and congratulations. Just to continue what seems to be a theme here, I would say you definitely “married up”. (How drunk did you have to get her before she said “yes”?)

    • Kevin Levin Nov 21, 2011

      I must have married the only German that doesn’t drink alcohol.

  • Tim Lacy Nov 21, 2011

    Congrats! – TL

  • Ray O'Hara Nov 21, 2011

    May you have many more.

  • TF Smith Nov 22, 2011

    Actually, the fact that she married you while you were still in grad school should be grounds for sainthood. My better half actually encouraged me to go back, so there’s plenty of blame to go around in our case…

    Definite Slackenerny and Jen material…

    All the best to you both,

    • Kevin Levin Nov 23, 2011

      Thanks. Actually, I was gainfully employed at that time. I went back while teaching for a second masters degree.

      • TF Smith Nov 23, 2011

        Better give her the book dedication!

        • Kevin Levin Nov 24, 2011

          Done.

  • Woodrowfan Nov 23, 2011

    congratulations! may you two have many ore than 10 happy years together.

  • Kevin Levin Nov 23, 2011

    Thanks again everyone for the kind words. We had a great weekend.

  • Michaela Nov 23, 2011

    Thank you, Kevin! Yes, you charmed me and yes, I am the only German I know that does not drink; ) Thank you for the most wonderful 10 years!

  • Neil Hamilton Nov 27, 2011

    Michaela,

    Glad you saw fit to make an honest man of him!

    May you have many more wonderful years together.

    Sincerely,
    Neil
