Remember yesterday?
Walking hand-in-hand?
Billet-doux in the sand
I remember you

A billet-doux,
And balley-hoo,
Will often result,
In a belay due.

When my spouse has to travel out of town, I always hide a billet-doux in the clothing that is packed for the trip.

PS...I'm not making this up...I actually do this.

After Jimmy Carter’s brother brought out his beer (and Hillary’s brother sold her White House position for pardons and paroles ), one begins to see how poorly the democrats actually billet-doux when they try capitalism, rather than cronyism and corruption.

billet-doux: a complex dance maneuver involving classical music, a milling machine, and the consumption of prunes.

It's not a billet-doux that the American public is writing Obama, it's a dear John letter. The spat of negative books on Obama are flooding the best seller lists, and some are even published by liberals. Next week Bob Woodward's book comes out. Seems to me, things are turning sour for the onceWon.

The air is full of remembrances of the horric scenes of 9-11 today. During the course of the morning they will start reading the billet-doux that were left from victims to loved ones. I’ve already read one.

Clinton at the DNC, a billet-doux
But how much good did Billy do?
The dems love him wicked
But he ain’t on the ticket
Nor is his wife, that shrilly shrew

Ya......my spouse likes it too!

I try to find a new hiding place everytime. The shoe one was weird and I've even folded it up and stuck into the cap of traveling toiletries.

In truth I only missed doing it once and it was this past year. I was having health issues and a surgery that I was recovering from, so I think the spouse wasn't even realizing I forgot anyway.
