Happy Valentine's Day

I hope everyone has a happy, safe, and healthy special day tomorrow. I was treated to a beautiful bouquet today and a 5"7" Epic Rose from Ecuador. It's my second year to receive the tall rose from Jim. I loved the one last year and if memory serves me right, it lasted a couple of weeks. Not too bad for an import. I included a picture of it and two of my three men. The other dog, Bogart, was sleeping but Tucker was pretty docile in Jim's arms.

We had a wonderful weather weekend so finally the ice and snow is starting to melt. What a treat to have the ice gone from our driveway. It takes so little.....

Electrifying can mean so many things. I spent another weekend watching gymnastics and that truly is electrifying especially when you see two "10s" given out. In fourteen years of competition, I have never seen a 10. But electrifying to me is also seeing my nephew Jon's photography. He is a natural and last week during the storm took a wonderful macro video with his camera of a melting snowflake that I found "electrifying" in it's simplicity and rare view. When I went to do my inchie, I chose between "joy" and "memories" to showcase the word. It was a tough choice for me because I do find memories electifying when they just pop into your head out of nowhere...good ones and bad ones alike. But the most electrifying feeling I have felt is pure joy so that won out. Enjoy........
