Happy Valentines Day! Hope you all have a wonderful Valentines day with your sweeties. We are not doing anything today but we do have a date night tomorrow! I did get Maddie(my granddaughter) a little bear with hearts all over him and a book. I'll have to show you a photo of her with that little bear, she takes him everywhere and kisses and hugs him. It is so cute! And if you haven't been over to visit my friend Jennifer at the The Beaufort Lookout please go over and check out her fourteen days of love. She has really done a great job with all of her posts about love. Thanks Jennifer, I enjoyed them!

And today is also my Dad's birthday. The first photo (which I know is in bad shape, but hey it is 50 something years old) is of my Dad and I when I was a baby and the second is of us a year or so ago. My sisters and I are taking him out to lunch today(if he lets us, LOL) he always takes us out to lunch every week and never lets us pay. My Dad has always supported my sisters and I(and my brother also before he passed) in everything we do. He was a Marine who was in WW2 and he seen alot in the south Pacific. He was also on Iwo Jima and I never heard him speak of his time there until a few years ago. Thanks Dad for all you do for us! Happy Birthday!
