    Don't forget, Valentine's Day is coming up! The day we remember Feb 14, 1929 and buy our "Sweet-haht" (read with Bogey's accent) something appropriate (I'd suggest something in .40 cal or better).

    I hate Valentines Day. Complete "special day" made up by Hallmark and Zales to increase sales and, of course, the women completely bought into it.

    Now, leave me alone so I can order the flowers and make reservations for dinner.......

    LOL Don't forget...nothing says "I love you" like Kevlar.

    btw...for the record...I totally agree with you, Thor. The restaurant chains are jumping on the bandwagon as well, and making a hefty buck off of it. My wife and I don't even bother going out to eat on Valentine's Day, since before we got married. We tried once. Managed to get into McDonalds. That was the only place that didn't have an hour or more wait.

    I bought flowers for my wife once, in late Feb or something, and the gal at the checkout snickered and said something about "Valentine's was two weeks ago!". I told her it wasn't for Valentine's Day, that Bugsy Moran had it coming to him (the light behind her eyes sorta clicked off at that), and I was buying the flowers for a much better reason: it was Tuesday, and I didn't need a single day each year with tons of commercialism to remind me to let my wife know I love her. So I make it a point of NOT getting anything for her on VDay.

    Yep, nothing says "20 years" like a coffee cup from the dollar store.

    To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, " The only thing worse than celebrating Valentines Day is not having a reason to celebrate Valentines Day".

    Heh. And then you get the next 363 days to contemplate the errors of your ways. And with any luck, you'll be back on solid foods by next Valentine's Day!
