Rocket scientist that I am, I did buy a Valentines card, signed it when I got home, and tried to stuff it into the too small wrong envelope I had bought along with the card. Never checked it. I am so impressed with my brain!!

I just gave Dixie a hart box of candy. I'll give her a card in the morning. Dixie would be disappointed if I forgot. I live under the opinion that if momma aint happy aint nobody happy. Candy and cards makes Dixie happy even if only until the candy is gone. (:^D Two weeks ago Dixie sent me to the Dollar Store for some things and aid bring me back a hart box of candy. Young gal clerk ask if it was an early valentine. I said no, I was just following orders.

Valentines day is not a big deal at our house. Wife doesn't get too excited and the youngest daughter despises it. However Saturday is another story. February 17th is my wife's birthday I can't forget that one.

My wife is very thrifty some might say cheap(LOL)Anyway we've given each other nice cards over the years and she has kept them all so now she came up with the idea that we'll
give each other the card over again instead of buying more.Been working pretty good.

My wife and I have also been doing that for several years. We?ll write a line or two on the card each year and include the year. Kind of nice to read what was written seven years ago. Wayne

Wife wanted flowers so I got her a whole bunch in kit form or some assembly required. I was in town and the spring garden seeds are out so I picked her up about eight little packs of seed. She laughs about it but does enjoy growing them all summer in a corner of the garden. I think cut flowers are the biggest waste of money. Overpriced and then throw them out in a week or two. Live ones are great. Tom

300jk,

You did well!

Like others, we seldom give gifts or cards to each other anymore.

But some hugs and I love you's happen frequently... equally interspersed with some smart-aleck ribbing, all in good fun.

The last ten years or more my Grandfather was alive he had my Grandmother stop signing birthday cards and didn't put anything on the envelope so they could be reused. They picked ones that weren't specific so I gave them back to him for his birthday. Some went back and forth between us more than once. He could have been called very thrifty also but when I bought cattle from him to start ranching on my own he wouldn't accept any interest on the note even though it was part of the original deal. And I paid it off early which really made him happy. He's been gone quite a few years and I sure miss him and the rest of my Grandparents. By the way I left my wife a card on the seat of her truck so she will find it in the morning. I'm spending the night with my Mom at the rehab place she's at. Tony

I hope you didn't take them off of a head stone.

When my Mom passed, something "made me" buy this big bouquet of artificial roses (looked REAL!!) for the head stone. Dad had passed not long before and, even though he didn't leave any thoughts on doing any such thing for Mom (and I'm not bright enough to think of this on my own!), just felt compelled to get this and to make it out to Mom, from Dad.

The next day it was gone! Someone stole it! Funeral home said it happens all the time. ??!??!??!??!??!??!??!??!??!??

Here's what was stolen. The words on the ribbon are what Dad always told Mom, as far back as I can remember.
