~The FReeper Canteen Presents~

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here's some lovely roses for everyone!

And chocolate for all!

110 million roses, the majority red, will be sold and delivered within a three-day time period.

About 1 billion Valentine's Day cards are exchanged each year. That's the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas.

More than 50 percent of cards are sold the week of the holiday, with the largest and most elaborate Valentine cards sold 48 hours before February 14.

Conversation Hearts: In 1866, candy manufacturer NECCO made the first "Conversation Hearts" — then called "Motto Hearts." According to NECCO, eight billion of these little candies are sold between January 1 and February 14.

 More than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold for Valentine's Day.

The Italian city of Verona, where Shakespeare's lovers Romeo and Juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to Juliet every Valentine's Day.

Teachers will receive the most Valentine's Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts. Children ages 6 to 10 exchange more than 650 million Valentine's cards with teachers, classmates, and family members.

Good evening, Mac...*HUGS*...hope you are feeling better today.

Did your appointment go well?

Prayers continue that the med guys can get you back into good shape.

It’s snowing right now. Paperwork printed and my homework and I are about ready to leave for home.

SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!




Tattoo

Must retire – the 0500 Reveille approaches relentlessly – the bugler already mounts the parapet. Will chat with you all on the morrow.

Good night, God bless you, and God bless the United States of America!

Godspeed our Troops around the Globe – especially those in harm’s way – by virtue of their service and sacrifice we continue to live in Freedom!
