Valentine's Day 2012 is gonna be great. But Valentine's Day 1987???

Here we are at Valentine's Day 2012. The gift is wrapped. The card is signed. It's all good-to-go!

But a funny thing happened on the way to the year's big romantic holiday. I asked Denise about our first REAL Valentine's together back in '87. In fact, I couldn't remember what I bought her; flowers, a necklace, maybe a scarf???

The answer, she reminded me with a smile..was nuttin'. "Really", I said???

"That's right", she replied.

She added," I bought you 2 new sweaters from Wanamaker's department store in Northeast Philly". Denise remarked I admired the sweaters, then said that..."I'll get you a card later on".

WOW!!!! Class with a capital "K"!

Needless to say...things a have changed!

Houston Home and Garden Magazine was kind enough to include us in their Valentine's issue.

Thank goodness they didn't ask about the FIRST Valentine's Day!!!
