I have never liked Valentine's Day in a big way. It began in grade school. Lucky me, I was one of the popular students, so always ended up with a nice haul, but I always felt bad for the students who never got valentines, or just one. And, I regret the one time I gave a card to the boy everyone shunned. He thought it meant that I liked him. The way he waved it around, you'd have thought I'd proposed. We were in third grade!
I remember all the V Days when I didn't have a boyfriend, and my girlfriends did. I won't forget the one cheap bf who picked up a box of candy at a convenience store--a last minute purchase that he presented just minutes before I had to leave for my third shift job. I opened the box the next day. The candy was stale. Jack, I forgive you, but am still glad I broke up with you, you cheapskate.
Anyway . . . I think it's nice that lovers have a day to show their sweet side with flowers, candy, special dates, diamonds, and, Lord, have mercy, proposals. I have never sent a valentine to a pen friend, but I am in the middle of a change-of-life-moment. It all began with THE bike. My love for it is like muskrat love must be between muskrats. I had to express my feelings, and so I did. Get it? *laughing* Flirting bikes. Flirting bikes inspired me to take it a step farther. So, you have a preview of my Valentine's Day cards. Tweaking is called for.
What will you do? Buy or create? Looking forward to seeing your card. You send me yours, I'll send you mine. Deal? Will mail mine February one. That way we will have fourteen days to enjoy them early, and on the day.
P.S. Let me know if you want one. Will do limited edition. Hope I can find more of the bike stamps. The one here is my last one.
