Celebrating the day dedicated to love and friendship–
Let’s start with animals!
When I was 16, was the first Valentines Day I spent with my husband. He gave me a beautiful Asparagus Fern Plant, which I still have over 50 years later, plus an amazing book with a love letter in it, and 99 empty pages. For the next 44 years, until he was killed, every year he would write me a love letter. Sometimes a short paragraph, sometimes 2 or 3 pages long. His friends would often say, are you sure she doesn’t want flowers, or jewelry, and he would say, I know my wife. He was right. Although, it always brings me tears, I treasure reading those words over and over.
A retired Marine, like a Boy Scout, is always prepared, right? <3

I got my GF a nice new Valentine’s Day mop and broom set with matching dust pan, but she still didn’t seem all that excited. There’s no pleasing women!
This is when you cling in hope to the maxim, “It’s the thought that counts.”
