    Painting the rocks?

    Worse thing ever did? Painting the rocks? [​IMG]Just kidding. Photoshopped. I told Sue I was going to photo shop a spray can under her finger. [​IMG]La Push Beach, in Washinton State on our coast.[​IMG]This is supposed to be the location at La Push in the book series Twilight. This is where the werewolfs dive off the cliffs. In real life, it's a little too shallow for that. When you enter the area, there is a sign declaring it a Vampire Free Zone. This is a little West of Forks. [​IMG]Replicas of the trucks from the Twilight movies. It's kind of fun seeing stuff like this. I was here that weekend for the memorial service for my cousin Lori.

    The worst present I ever got by the way, was a Valentine's day card from a girl. :( Nothing wrong with different lifestyles, just not mine. I like men. :)

    What are you getting Sue this year? My husband always got me a 5 lb box of Godiva chocolates, it was great. :) Back then, it wasn't known that dogs can't or shouldn't eat chocolate, so, my dog and I would rejoice in it. This is what by the way, makes marriages work, here is a tip,

    we would be shopping at a mall, and if there was a Godiva chocolate shoppe, he would take my hand and he would say, " let me buy you a chocolate."

    I would fall in love over and over in love him, because of a piece of chocolate. It's the little things.


    So, if you got a sweetheart, take her hand and buy her a chocolate.

    I picked up a box of chocolate last week. I know it's her weakness.

    My son just called, wishing me a Happy Valentine's day, and I asked, 'what did you get deb?" he said, well... we got a mutual gift, cable stations we both like, he added, " we both are practical." Well, I instructed my son to stop on the way home from work, and get her a heart... practical doesn't keep the romance going I told my son, I am a good mom. ..

    ...and, sing this song to her, :)

    Nobody Loves Me Like You Do lyrics
    Songwriters: Phillips, Pam; Dunne, James;

    Like a candle burning bright
    Love is glowing in your eyes
    A flame to light our way
    That burns brighter everyday
    But now I have you
    Nobody loves me like you do

    Like a leaf upon the wind
    I could find no place to land
    I dreamed the hours away
    And wondered everyday
    Do dreams come true
    And nobody loves me like you do

    What if I'd never met you
    Where would I be right now
    Funny how life just falls in place somehow
    You've touched my heart in places

    That I never even knew
    'Cause nobody loves me like you do

    I was words without a tune
    I was a song still unsung
    A poem with know rhyme
    A dancer out of time
    But now there's you
    Baby, nobody loves me like you do

    What if I'd never met you
    Where would I be right now
    Funny how life just falls in place somehow
    You've touched my heart in places
    That I never even knew
    Nobody loves me, nobody loves me
    Nobody loves me like you do

    Nobody loves me like you do

    Will tell you a little secret, lol, don't tell anyone, :) this one always was my holiday of the year. Bigger than Christmas, bigger than my birthday, or more special than our anniversary. It was a day to celebrate being in love.

    So make it special guys. Make it count. It will last you a lifetime if you do.

    That sounds awfully nice! About the same price for a 5 lb box of Godiva chocolates. I looked up the prices for the heck of it, WOW, did they go up. 29 pieces of chocolate for 45 bucks, lol. Today, I might not be getting that big box...

    I haven't gotten anything for Valentine's day since 2005 at my request from anyone. That day was mine & Tim's and it will always stay that way. So, I refuse all offers for a dinner out, candy hearts, and cards. One year, I might go with my brother to a casino though. I might do that, and have a few drinks, hopefully, win a few bucks.

    Now, Terry, I had a nice idea about that picture you photo shopped, that would make a nice photo to frame, or, even, make it for a wallet-size for Sue. :) I like little things like that, I think, most women do.

    Now, that, that horrible holiday is over and done with, lol, we are looking at St. Patrick's day! Now, who makes their own green beer? I listened to the music group in Terry's Corner and, found the fiddler player was pretty good.

    He's still in my life, lol, I just got to think on this and make sure this is what I really want, because I don't want to add divorcee to my list of experiences in life, :)
    I want to honeymoon at Sea World, he wants exotic places, I want a small wedding, he wants a big lavish wedding, he wants to buy me a new car,(lexus, yet) I want new tires & my heater fixed, I am just this simple, little person, who enjoys simple little things, and peace from annoying people, and, those do know, who they are. :)

    Not you Bob.
