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!!!
