Default Tuesday Morning- Happy Valentines Day

Good morning all. It's Valentines Day. Did you buy a present for your special love? Don't forget to get something for your spouse as well.
Clear skies and COLD this morning here in the lower Hudson Valley.
Lots to do today so I'll keep it brief.
Have a great day everyone.
Papa

Good morning!!! Back to work looking at a somewhat hazy pastel sunrise over Brooklyn and Queens. Got a couple of Valentines kisses, however first came from Sofia the poodle who jumped in as I leaned over to kiss my wife, who was still in bed.

Hope Everyone Has a Great Day!!!!

Mornin' everybody,

It's Valentine's Day???? Oh No!!!! Actually, I'm going to take DW out to dinner tonight, but she has never been that big on flowers, etc. I did find her a card that was cruise related. I thought it was great and it will give her a good laugh. Outside it says "I was going to give you a cruise for Valentine's Day", but inside the card has its own "Do not disturb" sign, along with a goofy message that I can't recall verbatum. But you get the idea.

Have a great day!

Ed

Good morning and Happy Valentines day.

PapaBill, I know you have a whole bunch of special loves. Fortunately Grams has nothing to worry about.

It's only 37 here right now, but the sun is rising in the east giving off a beautiful warm glow.

Have a good one all.

Phyll

Well, I am mighty impressed today. The significant other in my life, normally, while he will get me anything I ask for............cannot for his life get me something on his own, absolutely cannot, no way no how, That is the way it is........... and to be frank, lately we have had a few discussions over the topic as well...........including most importantly that I have never been a picky person for gifts, and the only one I feel is kind of cold is money in a card. Now trust me, I dont mind sometimes, but it is all the time if I dont tell him exactly what to do or get.........well, he did his same whine about my birthday, and I told him, figure it out, I am not giving you an idea.........he came up with a great one, on the cruise you buy something..........but valentuines day is two days later, can't use that same idea.........so I guess he did all three traditional things to cover all the bases! well, Not only did he remember valentines day, but he got a jump start yesterday..............as that is when he shopped because of work schedual. I got one fancy gift bag beautifully wrapped with perfume, then I got another bag with an amazing box of chocolaits that might never be opened because the box is so pretty, and topped it off with a dozen red roses,............trust me, he is not a flower person, and I love fresh cut flowers..............so there we are............I was quite impressed and he knows so as well. It is to funny, one year, like all the men in my life, they thought they could combine birthday and Valentines day gift into one, my flowers were for Both events..............they learn quick, it is two different events( Did I say I love fresh cut flowers!!) Not in terms of gifts, but in terms of wishes and card. Actually card means the most to me.

So, that is where we are today, it is dark and cloudy, I need to get going but wish I could gget some sleep today. I think they said we are getting snow.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY EVERYONE Not much on the agenda for our special day since I'm working tonight and Tony has a meeting. We are planning our Valentine's Day for tomorrow night.

Very cold here in Massachusetts and that white stuff is still all over the ground. When will spring arrive??????????

Hope everyone has a very special day of love.

Love is when you don't want to go to sleep because reality is better than a dream.

Well, since there are no hearts in the Image Gallery, I will have to make do with a Valentine Rose!

Happy Valentines Day everyone, and I have to say I loved BigJohn's little poem!

Delfthuis, what a nice surprise for you!

I got a nice surprise myself. In addition to the wonderfully sentimental card, the box of chocolates and the heart shaped pin I found on the breakfast table this morning, when I looked outside to see the weather, there on my car, written in the snow on the windshield, were the words " I Love You"!!
Now, how romantic is that?

I'm off to work today, despite the fact that they called my at almost midnight last night to say the boiler had burst and the gym was flooded and there was no heat. They called back at 6:20 a.m. to inform me I had to come in after all, the heat's back on even though the gym will be closed.
Oh well, at least I won't miss our Valentines celebrations with the kids...

Hope everyone has a nice day, and that you have a special Valentine to warm you on this cold February day!

donna

Good morning everyone:

I gave Betty her Valentines card and gift, last night, when she returned home from work. I actually bought her something she couldn't return. In California she saw a triple strand pearl necklace that she said would look good with her new dress. She never bought it because she thought it was too expensive. I did a double back about 20 minutes later, saying I had to go to the bathroom and bought it.

After the initial anger of spending the money and buying it, she loved it.

Well, I have to go and take a walk around the boards and then we will head over to my daughter's for a couple of hours. She needs a bit of computer help.

Take care,
Mike

Happy Valentines Day CruiseMates. The best gift I could get today is the news that they found no cancer after my cousin has her surgery today. Leaving soon to go to the hospital and see her. Have a great day all.

Happy Valentine's Day! It is sunny!, but cold(around freezing) here in Vancouver.
Have to go quick to help out at my youngest's class-they are decorating heartshaped cookies. Work later.
Phyll-thanks for the manatee info!
RD-that is cute-written in the snow on your car!
Everyone take care. Bye for now. Brenda

Wont you be my Valentine!!

Mrs. Kuki gets her new car today (not red), and I get my normal gift.... nada

I'm looking for a NEW valentine!

We're on the verge of heading to below zero temps in Calgary. We can feel the cool air moving in, and some snow forecast. Not going to be a very pleasant weekend

Papa:

When it comes to Valentines Day, that is reserved to my "Romantic Love". A.k.a. my wife.

The other loves in my life. My children and grandchildren all have special days but I reserve this one for the girl who chose me. Or who finally gave in to my begging.

Take care,
Mike

Papa Bill, I rteally did read the post, but I guess I dont get the hidden message!

Share it with us..............

Tonight we are going to dinner..........we just went for my B day, so tonight is just simple close by to a deli we enjoy.

I do get a little some thing for my Son, and even our four legged friends get him a traditional gift......boxers and sox! When Daniel was young one of our dogs ripped a favorite pait to shreds playing, spider man, he was so mad!! I replaced them in the name of the dog on Valentines day, and the tradition stuck!

I do wish close friends and family happy Valentines day, but more than that, I am not so into it, l

An excuse to let people know you love them

Today I registered on line for cruise. I hope so MUch I will get Docs from Nancy before we leave. The ship sends them first there and then they send them to me.........Hope there will be time.......Just fun to have them in hand. But I do have that online registration in hand, and just a little over two weeks till we go. Just found out some other friends will be on the same ship...........

Papa was having some fun !
He asked if everyone had remembered their " special love ". Then he threw in that in addition to your " special love " don't forget your spouse too.

Regards,
Ben

I "stole" this from Ron, he has a post in the Carnival part about the Glory too rocky, where he stated this. I thought it was great!
