....or the winners and losers of Valentine's Day 2009.
In the world of Grandma J, Valentine's Day isn't a particularly eventful day.
What I mean is it's a holiday without much in the way of change in my schedule. There are a few things I won't do on Valentine's Day
1. I won't go to the movies...which is why I missed my Friday Matinee this week. I know Friday was the 13th, but please...do you really think all teenagers waited until the 14th to go celebrate? NO...otherwise I wouldn't have gotten a call to deliver flowers to a certain boy at a certain high school on behalf of a certain granddaughter this past Friday. Oh, and don't try to call a florist on Friday before Valentine's Day....they don't answer or actually have recordings telling you they won't answer
2. I won't go out to dinner either.....it's bad enough on a regular Friday. I do tell those that I love "Happy Valentines Day" just like I say "Happy Chinese New Year".
For the WINNER (of winners and losers).....
One person I sent an email to was my son-in-law 1SG John. If you've visited my blog in the past, you know all about my SIL.....and that he's now serving his third deployment in Iraq. I want to share with you his response to my e-mail. Just click on the picture of the email to enlarge it.
Sgt John has often said the difference in Iraq since his first deployment is like night and day. I have offered to send him whatever he wants and basically he said there is nothing they can't get right there in Iraq. So, while it's
And, it's appropriate to honor 1SG John during 2009 - The US Army Year Of The NCO.
Now for the LOSER (of winners and losers)...
Papa John's Pizza!
They had the nerve to send me this Loser E-mail...offering me a deal on a heart shaped pizza..... at 11 a.m. the day after Valentine's Day. Just click on the picture!
Was your day perfect? Was your pizza cold?
