    Happy Valentine's Day!

    With this being the day for lovers, I thought I would do an unofficial poll.

    My woman doesn't give me cards and flowers for Valentines Day. But she is very thoughtful.

    I don’t really care if I get gifts for any holidays. I didn’t want to go out tonight because it’s always so crowded and overpriced. I put a peanut butter cup in Balota’s lunch and wrote “I love you” on the wrapper. It’s the every day things I like. I’m pretty low maintenance.

    taking my lovely wife out to see a carole king music deal at a dinner theater.
    She gave me a card. I got her a card and orchids. (she complained that the roses don't last long the last time)

    14 years ago, we almost lost our horse Mac: the reason we bought this farm and got a companion. And the reason we got our beloved Fi and her companion/best pal Scruffy. And what led to getting our two barn cats. Our love is focused on those of God's creations, but that include each other.

    It was an ice storm, and our regular vet couldn't get here, and Mac was colic-ing badly. Thankfully, a horse vet we had never known volunteered to weather the ice storm and drive 40 miles to help our Mac. Twice! His second visit also caused him to call forward to a horse hospital 60 miles away that they had an incoming patient. They were ready!

    We had no horse trailer and no means to get him there. Our next-door neighbor hooked up his horse trailer to his pick-up, SLOWLY backed down our drive as far as he thought he could and still get out, and we loaded our Mac onto his trailer, using black sand-blasting grit on the ramp to keep him from slipping. This was at 11PM, Valentine's Day, 2006. I followed so that we all could return later.

    All of this during a nasty ice storm.

    So our collective appreciation of this day was of the love of neighbors and the Grace of God that pulled our Mac through.

    Plus, the Walmart "I Love You" bears that our Fi so loved...

    one ( 1 ) conversation with dear old Mom from age 12 to age 26. 50 times a day:

    "By the ( profane, well known religious figure, profane, vulgar ), when the ( profane, profane ) are you going to get ( profane ) married and give me ( profane ) grandchildren, anyways, ( profane, vulgar )?" WELLLLLLLL?

    having answered this question precisely, once, at age 12, my reply is: stoneface.

    February 14 is Mad Cow Day.

    We don't really do anything today either, same with most holidays. We both are the type that would rather work on the holidays, as she gets time and a half, and I pretty much have the shop to myself.

    All I did today was wish the daughter happy birthday, chat with a friend on FB, between writing out work orders, and wait for her to get back from work, around 16:00. After that, we did decide to go out, and went to Quaker Steak & Lube on Peach Street, for dinner.

    Ironically, it was the first time we ever ate, seated under a 1959 Corvette, on a lift.

    We went on a fun-filled shopping expedition! Looking for green beans such as we had for supper, they were out of the sale ones. Got some rye bread and braunschweiger tho!

    I've had that same conversation many times with mine also.
    My answer is simple. I'll get married when I find a woman that has her own house,a great job,pays her own bills,and only wants me to come by a couple times a week for sex!
    Other than that,I have no use for a wife.

    Our Grandson (13) sent us a VD card with a very kind written note.

    Don't think I ever did that for my Grand Parents or Grand Mother at that age.

    It means more than words on the internet can describe.

    His father is currently in Afghanistan...

    That would be nobody! I don't like rye bread or anything made from livers.
