Valentine's Day

First of all - a great St Valentine's Day to ANY or ALL of you, and your SPECIAL ones!

Then, a bit of background on what 14 Feb means to me:

On this day in 1969 I received my pilot "Wings" in the Canadian Airforce, and then in 1994, returning from a weekend skiing the "Big Mountain" in Whitefish, Montana (AGAIN - on THIS DAY!) I asked my wife to marry me, and she accepted.

Hope all your memories of this day are as great as mine are.

You sure about the date? 1994, married 25 years?

Yup! (Except when the anniversary comes up later in April - it'll be 26!)

ANOTHER special on THIS 14 Feb....

Here's my odometer as of about noon today....

90,000 by Ed Copeman, on Flickr

Because of my age - I wonder IF I'll get it to ALL 9s, which might happen in 2021, then it'll change to ALL 0s a mile later, I believe...!

Cool story Ed.

The consumerism of Holidays caused me to write a long rant, but I deleted it. Hope you and the Mrs. had a great celebration.

We DID, and I TOO have issues w/ rampant consumerism. Because of it, we NEVER celebrate 14 Feb, as the roses that are selling at $10/dozen two weeks before, suddenly co$t $30.

At least our wedding anniversary is an OTHERWISE undistinguished mid-April day, so we CAN celebrate IT!
