Valentine's Day thread, FReeper style
both my brain cells ^ | 2/14/10 | me!

Posted on 02/14/2010 4:41:25 AM PST by Daisyjane69

ok folks, it is now Valentine's day across the US.

Give it up.

What are you up to? Are you intending to be "surprising" or among the "surprised?"

My darling wife left me a “heart trail” to follow this AM.

Today, I have the opportunity to thank two of the heroes in my life who one year ago pulled my lifelong valentine, my husband, from a burning car fifteen seconds before it burst into flames. And then they got him to the ground and put out the flames that were eating his clothing up. Even for this gabby grandmother, there are not enough letters in the alphabet to express my heartfelt gratitude. My thank you today will carry an immeasurable weight. May God bless them a thousand times over!

Bought my wife a new fishing pole yesterday and said: Happy Valentines, love you. Am I a romantic or what ;-)

No cards, no candy, no stuffed animals, no pajama grams or Vermont teddies.. We went out for a nice dinner last night and I’ll make her a nice breakfast this morning.

I’ll go first.

I sent (shipped) my sweetie pounds and pounds of homemade cookies; he is lactose intolerant, so that is a treat for him. The box included a couple of popcorn “movie watching” kits, and..............a signed copy of Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levin! heh

He’s a reformed lib and I figured he would like it. And he did!

He sent (shipped) to me: a dozen long stemmed red roses, girly lavender bath stuff, a teddy bear, and a box of chocolates. And a mushy card. LOL

However, keep this in mind. He and I are 2000 miles apart. I’m in St. George, UT and he is in Chicago.

If you and your valentine are in the same town, the same house, or the same bed, your present is better than mine. In that case, YOU WIN.

No flowers or candy here, either. I don’t want him wasting the money. Instead, he suggested a prime rib dinner at home, and a quiet evening watching a movie. Oh, and I have to get crackin’, cause I’m making him breakfast!

I woke up to soft kisses all over my face with an occassional slip of tongue.

I opened my eyes to look into the face of THE DOG!

Thank God for Listerine.

We (the humans)celebrated Valentines Day Friday.

Pretending the family cat can send cards, after signing them with gushy love messages, like “me love you - now feed me, and clean my litter box!”, or “me love you - now rub my ears and be my scratching post!”...

Had I not done that several years ago, I wouldn’t be getting those things on my “list.”

Chin up, cupcake. There’s a whole other world out there. :)

Lets see, I was asked if I could do barn duty. Meaning feeding & cleaning 9 horse stalls. Thankfully my knee is in a brace or that is where I would be. My 2 horses are my Valentine's. To keep them in this economy we gave up all presents & going out to dinners. But they are so worth it!

You do, in fact.

A widow lives behind me, I have a Valentine for her that will have to “do” until she goes home to her husband in a few months.

Go to a Veteran’s hospital or a local nursing home, gifts in hand, dressed in your Sunday best. Turn on the charm.

The place will be swarming with nurses. :)

I’d love for my sweetie to make me breakfast this morning. She’s a lucky gal, indeed.

Of course, there is little that would thrill my sweetie more than me making him “a scramble” as he calls it. He’s a guy and he likes to eat. LOL

I bought heart shaped post-it notes this week and started writing things I love about my husband on them. Last night I stuck them all over the bathroom mirror so he would find them this morning. Thought he might appreciate the compliments more than stuff.

After 34 years of marriage there's no surprise(s) left.

I given her every gift under the Sun; Roses, Diamonds, Gold, Emeralds, Pearls, and 'Ruby's from Begonia' (old joke). The only thing I haven't given her is a Pony -- and we already have a Yellow Lab, so who needs a Pony :-)

If you can, be sure to make time to take a look at the American history section on railroad transportation, there is a huge Southern Railways '4-6-2' steam locomotive that has been perfectly restored, it's #1401.

If you see it, let me know and I can tell you a neat story about that train. Have a great day!

WOW!

Lady, you’re creative! Way to go!

I bet he saves each one.

Personal and silly thing here, just between you and me.

I recently learned that my sweetie has saved not only each and every card and letter I’ve sent to him, but also each box (and attached label) I’ve ever shipped. I couldn’t understand why and finally asked him. Here is what he said:

“Honey, I love your handwriting. It’s awesome. I’m a teacher and nowadays, kids type. They can’t write worth a shit. To see your penmanship was a thrill.”

*crinkled brow*

Some gals are loved for their beauty. Others are loved for their figures or for their brains.

I am loved for my...penmanship. LOL

and perhaps my sense of humor, no?

It’s good to be loved for something, but I’ll bet it was a lot more than just your handwriting.

Well, my husband is up, enjoying breakfast I made, but hasn’t discovered his notes yet. Can’t wait to see his reaction when he finds them.

I just wanted you to know what a wonderful day it was. Our family can be pretty intimidating. 10 grandchildren, 12 adults, some were missing today but we still make a crowd.

Both men were humbled by our desire to recognize their heroics that saved GrampE. One of our grandsons had written a thank you note to each man and read it. He cried so hard as he read, but he continued through his tears(this is a year later)remembering the pain he felt when he thought he was going to lose his grampa. It was good for all, but especially my husband who, because of the accident and a hematoma on his brain, remembers very little of what went after the accident. He doesn't remember the accident or the rescue at all.

And the men that saved him didn't know until today that the night before the accident we had celebrated my youngest son's return from a year long tour in Baghdad, where he had had to pull 3 of his squad mates from a burning vehicle after it was hit by a roadside bomb(the vehicle he would have been in but they switched positions that day because of a breakdown). Only 1 survived.

God blessed us this day. It was a good day, a day to see how we had been affected and how we have recovered.
