Valentines Day has always been special
for Certain Man and Me.
We had our first date on
Valentines day, back in 1971.
After we were married,
he began to make sure to bring home
flowers for special occasions.
We were poor,
So he bought carnations.
It was what he could afford.
I would rather have carnations
than anything else,
and that is what he still brings me.
This is this year’s bouquet.
After almost a week, it still looks great!

What a sweet guy you are married too! Don always got me flowers for Valentines’ Day. I missed them this year. How I miss him!
I SO agree!! Once when we were dating and he was away in VS, my family took me to visit him, and we had a much-less-than-perfect weekend. I felt so depressed after I came back home. A few days later a beautiful bouquet of red carnations were delivered to my home, wired from Dick. What balm to my soul! They lasted a very long time, and I would kiss each beautiful flower goodnight! Carnations are the best!
Top-notch carnations there, in the midst of a top-notch couple.mw
