A Short Valentine's Day Story

My father was a not a big gift giver and forgot my birthday more than once even though it was a mere six days after his birthday. He would also occasionally say that my mother was just being ornery when she wouldn't deliver on his birthday so you would think that he would have no problems remembering when I was brought into the world.

My father often remembered me on Valentine's Day though.

If you were a card, you would be queen of hearts -

If you were in movies, you'd be a great star -

This is my 2011 puppy courtesy of my mother; she said that she couldn't resist.

Hope that you have plenty of sweet Valentine's Day memories or sweet memories from some other day...

Update: As soon as I hit the publish button, my Aunt Girt was at the door. She dropped off this V Day bag below. I've been feeling like I'm coming down with something and thought about going out to get ginger tea and there's a baggie within the bigger bag that has about 15 bags of tea -- two of them green ginger. Are you kidding me?


  1. Drink up some tea and don't get sick, chick!

  2. It's amazing how family is always right there, giving you what you need, before you've even realized that you need it!

    Happy V-day! :)

  3. awww-sweet aunt Girt!! how cool.
    when i was in high school my dad always sent flowers to the school for me. it made me feel so special. there were girls who told me they wished their dads would do that. that made me feel even more blessed.

  4. @gingersnapper,

    Too late. ☹ I'm still downing the tea & Emergen-C though. Being sick makes me appreciate all those times when I'm not...

    @Farty Girl,

    So true. I was like did I even send a signal from the Bat Cave? :)

    Happy V-Day to you too.


    Okay, I see that my father was skimping. ;) That's so cool that your father sent you flowers.

    Hope you had a great Valentine's Day.
