It's the day for our expressing love, fondness and appreciation to our romantic interests. Cards, flowers, candies... another retailers jackpot and something we should do on a daily basis anyway.
OK... do I sound crabby? It might have been that trip down the mountain to the place where the traffic was completely insane. Or the trip to the shopping center & big box store, crowded and busy with crowds completely unaware of those around them and shuffling slowly down the aisles in a four-abreast formation or blocking entrance as they leisurely lunched at every food sample station in the place. Maybe it was the early morning dog-walking encounter with a fellow walker proclaiming that the public park was his/her private domain, and the fang-bearing response it prompted from me.
Forgive me. It's time to turn this ship around before I head over the edge in terminal funk. It's the day for love, after all...
Happy Valentine's Day to all!
