Valentines Day Observed

 We did not forget to express our love for one another on Valentines Day.  I understand the symbolism of the red rose; but you need to understand that the yellow rose is the favorite of BBBH, hence she got yellow roses.  Please note the fancy vase.  (Yes, that merits the "vahz" pronunciation.

I happened upon an old sketch I used  a long time ago, so I repurposed it as a greeting card.  Someone enhanced my work, and now the caricatures actually resemble the inhabitants of this domicile.  As for my response to her question, 1) Hmm, why did she ask? and 2) it is a true answer, and trumps the "You are so beautiful" and similar lines, though they may be true, too.

AND, she had her t-bone steak dinner!

Just call me the last of the romantics.

Beautiful roses! Yellow roses were Mom's favorites, also.

Mr. Wonderful did not forget me. Mine are red.

A truly wonderful Valentine's celebration, with great truths about love.

Wishing both a belated Happy Valentine's day!

Grace, maybe next-to-last. An old gentleman in front of me in store, 2:30 p.m., checking out with a small bouquet. "You remembered," I said. "Just remembered," he said. "You're nothing but an old romantic," I told him.

Vee, I am partial to roses. Happy for the both of you that he remembered.

Shelly, thank you. It was a good day!

Lin, that's what they say. Thanks.

T-bones are the BEST. You two are so cute.

Shark, indeed, t-bones are great. Oh, cute? Thanks. (I've tried for years to get BBBH to pin down a definition for the word. Which she uses a lot.)
