Valentines Day

I am not sure if this is an international day, but my Slovinian wife has always remembered it even when I didn't...haven't forgotten it lately. 😊

She made a batch of Chocolate Chip cookies for me.

Hi Mark. Boy those cookies look tasty. I get my right hand operated on tomorrow morning, so I don't know what kind of St. Valentine's Day Sheri and I are going to enjoy. Thanks for the great photo of those delicious looking cookies Mark, and say hi to Bonnie too. And a Happy St. Valentine's Day to all.

Well, after 50 years, my wife knows how it is. She stopped by the market today and bought her own roses. I thanked her for taking care of that for me. (But tomorrow we'll go up to the foothills and have a picnic. The weather here is balmy and things are starting to bloom.)
