    This was my Valentine's Day surprise four years ago.
    This was my second day of muzzleloader season that year.
    A few weeks ago.

    I agree that we do do not have to buy into any kind of "holiday hype", however I encourage you all to take a moment and write her a love letter this week. We need to keep courting our wives. I believe that I am at my best when she feels loved. I do not do it perfectly, but I work to do it with excellence. Also, we will get v-day treats for our daughters. We don't buy into the hype, but we do keep it fun! One of the best gifts I have gotten from Mrs Weld in the past 18 years is a small pack of index card wrapped in a ribbon. It was 14 things she wrote about why she loved me. I keep it in my desk at work and pull it out occasionally to read through them. It makes my weary days a lot better. A couple years later, I did the same for her except I found a small heart shaped mirror key ring I used it to link all the love cards and I included a note telling her to look in that mirror when she felt down so she could see the woman I loved. She keeps it by her night stand. Guys, little things like this can really build up our wives. Don't be passive about your marriage. Work at keeping it romantic.

    You talk awful tough for an ol' boy that spends most of his time in the kitchen.

    Obviously. That's why I still hang my hat on it 30 years later.

    What is quilt school? Or did you just prove you never passed grade school either?

    Them rich boys talking trash don't bother me, cur. Let me tell you a story...

    My family never had much money. When I was in grade school, my momma packed my lunch everyday, on account of we couldn't afford them fancy reduced price school lunches. She'd send me to school with a bowl of turnip greens and a slab of cornbread everyday. After several consecutive days of having the same lunch, the other kids starting making fun of me and calling me poor. As any youngster would, I became embarrassed and got up from the table all of them were sitting at. As I frantically looked around the cafeteria for someone to sit with, I saw a classmate sitting at a table all by himself with nothing on the table in front of him but a claw hammer. I walked over to the table where he was and sat my bowl of greens down and said, "hey, you mind if I sit here?" He said "Naw." I pulled up a chair and began to eat my turnip greens, all the while looking at this claw hammer sitting on the table in front of my new found friend. I looked at him and said "Ain't you gonna eat something?" He said "Yeah." I asked him what the claw hammer was for and he said "Lunch." He then reached into the chest pocket of his dirty overalls and proceeded to pull out two hickory nuts and laid them on the table, right next to that claw hammer. At that moment, I realized how lucky I truly was. I now had someone to make fun of, that was poorer than I was.

    I can relate.

    We were so poor all I had to take for lunch was half a cold biscuit. I carried it in the same old sack every day. Jimmy always had 2 biscuits with ham on them in his bag. One day I decided I’d trade him bags. Well, I traded and his bag was heavier than mine so I thought I’d really scored big til I sit down at the table. I opened that bag up and there was 5 white oak acorns and a rock to crack them with. I had to watch jimmy eat my biscuit.

    Read faster. It won't take as long. I forget who I'm dealing with at times. I'll try and have more Memphis friendly posts in the future.

    We usually just go out to eat some place where the food doesn't come in a bag.

    Well, my mother in law owns a flower shop and V day is very important to her business. It also was the source of an important lesson for me 27 years ago when my wife and I started dating. That lesson was to NOT buy flowers for a girl who's mom owns a flower shop! They were not impressed! If, however, I stop and pick some wildflowers out of the road ditch, I am the bomb!
    We usually just cook a steak or something nice after the holiday rush is over.

    we do nothing much

    I spend 365 a year trying to love my wife, not just one day

    I'm taking her to an early BBQ dinner maybe, and that's all
