Mark's Valentine Gift to Me


You must just know my Mark, he's the sweetest person on earth. When Valentine's Day comes around I can always count on him to bring me Haagen Dazs Rocky Road Ice Cream.  (He's precious---he picks it up on the way home from work, then I eat it right away!)  He's never sent flower to me.  Well, except the ONE time he did:  It just didn't work out---the florist was SO busy, they delivered the roses the DAY AFTER Valentine's Day!  It was supposed to be a surprise; it was!  But being the person I am, I refused the flowers, and made sure the florist credited Mark.  We both agreed after that experience, that the only way to be sure I was happy was to stop and buy the chocolate ("any chocolate", I told him) on the way home. 



But this year is different.  You see, today he bought this for me:


Because we love adventure, he bought one for himself as well!  We'll take them when we go camping.  Plus there are a number of great trails around here for us to explore. Now isn't this the Valentine's Day gift you always wanted?  I love my Mark!

I told him it needs some pink and he sent me the link to this eBay item:
"I am a grandma,", I said!  He said, "Age doesn't matter!"  He has so much confidence in me, I'm honored.  So, OF COURSE, I took it out for a few test rides on our road.  I did fine, luckily our old Lab Sarge MOVED out of the way at the last second, but that was a close call!

My question for you all:  What unusual gift has your loved one given you for Valentine's Day?

Hugs, Hearts, Love and Blessings,

Oooh go for the pink! Do you remember Pinky Tuscedero from Happy Days? Reminds me of her. My dad who is 66 bought a Ninja! I can't believe it but he's a pretty cool guy with a young spirit!
