Whatever you’re doing, stop it right now and tell that special person in your life that you love them. Not because it’s Valentine’s Day, just because you should do it every chance you get.
We’re not big on giving each other gifts on holidays because that’s not what they should be about. All year long we treat each other with love, and we don’t need to spend money to do it. It’s the little things – the gentle pat on the shoulder as we pass, holding hands, the special treats Miss Terry makes for me, and me holding doors for her.
But this year Terry did give me a special gift for Valentine’s Day. She came down with a real nasty cold about the time we got to Mission, and has been feeling crappy all week. And because we share everything, she gave it to me. How sweet is that?
Of course, being a guy, I know mine is worse. It must be, because Terry suffered in silence. But I don’t have her stoicism, I’m whining and sniveling for all I’m worth. We had several people we had hoped to visit with while we were here but we’d prefer not to make everybody sick, so we’re going to have to ask for a rain check. It’s bad enough that our friend Jim is suffering right along with us.
Today is our last day here at Pleasant Valley RV Resort and I had hoped to get over to the clubhouse and throw some darts again, but based upon the way I feel right now, that’s probably not a good idea. I’ll probably just stay home and practice looking pathetic.

Thought For The Day – Wouldn’t it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes and come out wrinkle free and two sizes smaller?
