Gentlemen, Valentines Day is Sunday

Gent's hopefully by now, you have learned that fair died in the war. Get over it.

Sunday is Valentines Day. Another Christian bastardization of an ancient Roman tradition, you're thinking. Doesn't change the fact between now and Sunday you had better come up with your best expression of your love for your better half that ever was.

Regardless of what you may have thought you heard, you absolutely must come up with something. It need not be purchased, need not be expensive, need be meaningful.

Should you need ideas, put down the sports pages, and search the better bloggers.

I've always wondered why "she" is expecting something for Valentine's but "he" never gets anything!

We always do a fun thing (movie, play, concert) and have a great dinner. No roses for me. No chocolates for me (unless we buy movie candy).

It's a shared experience. So "he" gets as much Valentine's as "she"!

Valentine's Day is a his and her affair around here. Granted, one of us goes in with enthusiasm and one with a sense of duty.

I will buy him candy and he will buy me a bead for a bracelet purchased especially for this type of occasion.

I typically fire up the Viking and prepare a romantic dinner....a card or two and some chocolate covered Cherry Cordials.
Our 2 most memorable Valentine's days were the one where we were snowed in in Vermont for a long weekend in a cabin about 12 miles from Killington...and the one when we were in park City Utah for the 2002 winter Olympics.
