Valentines Day Recap

I hope everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. I spent part of my afternoon getting my hair cut, getting my watch repaired, and delivering Jean's quilt to her. I sat and visited with her and Gary for awhile, enjoying my first taste of Vernon's diet gingerale.

When Charlie got home, we exchanged Valentine's cards. He gave me one of the musical ones that plays "You're Still the One" and also brought home two quarts of strawberries and a lovely bottle of red wine. I made a funny card for him that included photographs of Charlie and me as babies and as young marrieds some time in the early 70's. The main idea was that now he has less hair, but still has nice buns! (True!)
Interesting true fact about my baby picture: it was used as the model for an advertisement for Johnson and Johnson baby products! My dad was a commercial illustrator in New York, and often used Polaroid photos of models when drawing or painting people. This time he loaned my modeling services to a friend who had the J&J account!
I also got Charlie an electric toothbrush for our mountain cabin. Before long, we will have all the comforts of home in our little retreat! Another non-traditional Valentine. Last year I gave him a gift certificate to DaVinci's Pork store!

What a beautiful picture. A marriage that transcends that much time -- is something to be proud of and treasured.
