    A "heart" felt reminder

    For those husbands and boyfriends that might have been too busy in the shop (or shoveling snow) to notice, the day after tomorrow is February 14th.

    If you're scratching your head right now, let me put it more plainly...


    IT"S VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!

    You just might want to go out and get a card....or something.

    I'm prepared to put down the tools and watch a movie...believe me, that is a big thing, been 6 months since my last movie. We actually both took Friday off to spend the day doing things she wants to do.

    Mailed the cards and gift last week. She got them Monday...same day I got the cards she sent. V-Day's not quite the same when the wife is 800 miles away.

    I dont need any day of the year to remind me to purchase something nice for my wife.
    I buy her gifts(cost can be from 1.00 up to whatever) all the time.

    We arent big on this valentines day stuff, wont go out for dinner to overpay.

    having said that, I did push stuffed dolls and phony flowers and balloons along with dozens of other novelties every valentines day to make money.

    as far as Im concerned, you should treat your wife or honey like its valentines day every day of the year.

    Well, I have no excuse not to remember three important events. All I have to remember is the month of February, which includes our anniversary, Valentine's Day, and LOML's birthday. We're celebrating V-Day tomorrow with her taking me to the eye surgeon in Tallahassee, but then we'll have an early dinner at Chili's as we head home.

    Yup, I remembered, even signed the card............... after all, I don't want her to guess who it came from.

    Valentines means a special dinner out for the both of us and a reminder to me of how extraordinary she has always been.

    LOML are going to dinner with the girl tomorrow night to celebrate. Friday morning we head out (without the kid) to Lawrence, KS (where we first met over 20yrs ago) to raise havoc like the good 'ol days with all the young college kids for the weekend....I can't wait!

    Her valentine gift for the past 10 years has been a gun. This year's valentine is on backorder. Kel Tec PMR30. Since she broke her wrist, she can't comfortably shoot 357 or larger. And if you have met my wife, she is kind of small anyway, so I do fear her as she is a dead shot!
