I made a mark in the hall

That beloved “Hallmark Holiday”, St. Valentine’s day, is almost upon us.

I got roses for Teresa at Costco the other day. Kind of early but who wants picked-over, leftover, slightly wilted flowers. It’s a thorny issue.

YES, they sell them by the dozen, just because it’s Costco doesn’t mean you have to buy the whole bushel. A dozen roses but the aphids are HUGE! Just kidding. they are holding up nicely so as long as I make like the guys on the Hallmark channel for a few days, I’m golden.

Later in the week, I can revert to my disgusting self, more like Al Bundy than “The Bachelor”.
