In 1947, a young man brought flowers to a young woman, for their first Valentine’s Day as a couple. A month later, they were married.
Today, 70 years later, that man has not missed a Valentine’s Day. Today, that man – the Old Man, my Dad – brought my Mom her 70th bunch of Valentine’s Day flowers. He’s 93, she’s 88, five kids, twelve grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren, and they still hold hands.
This, True Believers, is what love looks like; yes, this is what love looks like.
To all True Believers and other various and sundry readers of these virtual pages, all of us here at the Casa de Animal send our fondest and best wishes for a safe, happy, productive and profitable 2017!
