I looked up some history of the day and was surprised to see some details. I went to www.history.com and this is some of what I found:
From the above article it is interesting to note just who it is that purchases the majority of the cards -- no real surprise there . . .
Then there are the folks from our tree that celebrate a birthday on the 14th of February, plus we have around 150 other February birthdays -- a few highlights would be -- from Gail's side, her Mother, Myrtle, her Father, Jim and her Grandfather Walt. From my side of the tree my Mother, Ruth and my Grandmother Helen celebrate February days.
Birthdays aren't the only thing we are celebrating this February. In last week's post, I posted a picture of a hand with a ring on it promising more details coming -- and so here are the details: Congratulations to Lisa, my daughter, and to Robert (Bob) Baker. They have announced their engagement with more details forthcoming. We wish them the best!
Here is another look at the ring -- very nice! It is an exciting time for all.
NO CONNECTION TO THE PREVIOUS . . .
Also in the news this week was a story that does not "relate" to the previous story BUT may apply in hindsight to others in the tree . . . not mentioning any names though.
I believe that some folks do/did the sleuthing here but maybe not for the same purpose though I suspect that for some in our tree, it is just too late. There are so many ramifications of the above that it is mind boggling.
It is Quiet Here . . .
Dino continues to "grow" in all ways. He at times seems to be way beyond his age of 4 1/2 months. Other times though he still is a "pup". Every day we try to take him on short visits to the outside world -- today it was to the grocery store and then to Gail's office (since I tried to call with no luck). After shopping for items for tonight's dinner menu and visiting with the tax professionals it was back to the house for lunch and for blogging. Dino takes it all in a quiet manner. I can feel the clock ticking the months away . . .
And so goes our week. We look forward to maybe the start of our next "project" in the coming days, weather permitting. And since it is Saturday night we look forward to a special dinner -- tonight we break all traditions and will make home made pizza -- Dino and I picked up all the ingredients earlier today. We just have to make it all happen and hope that it is as good as "the pizzeria pizza" . . .
Have a good week, see you in a few!
