    Pelosi's old head
    Ain't got a clue.
    If she were dead,
    I'd be glad, wouldn't you?

    Hallmark don't pay me
    A cent for this verse
    That's why each one I write
    Gets worse and worse!

    Candy and flowers ––
    Make glorious treats,
    But personal poetry
    Nobody beats!

    If conceit were consumption
    Trump might be consumed,
    But if we didn't have him
    Our future'd be doomed!

    May your troubles be little,
    Anxieties few,
    And not one jot or tittle
    Of woe bother you!

      Wishing CAN make it so, providing you wish in prayer instead of consernation.

      Taking time to listen to The Still Small Voice can work miracles.

    The Communists Red
    Thrive on Envy pea green.
    Until they're all dead
    Life will just stay obscene!


    HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY!

  15. We rented the 2nd floor of an older house near Pittsburgh as teenagers. We found that the fireplace facia and mantles concealed several old time holiday cards when we pulled the wood away to reattach it to the wall. The cards were from the early 1900's and they all sounded just like this card.

    1. AOW, No, those were 'fast times'. I partially remember one that was poetic and sent from a female to a male and ended with how she is great at making salads.

  16. We postponed our Valentine's Day dinner, but will soon go to our favorite restaurant -- to celebrate both Valentine's Day and my birthday.

    __________ Dauntless ___________

    When writing verse I'm never bored
    It's fun. I need not be adored.
    I dare to share because I care
    And for no other reason.
    And though I'm rudely oft ignored
    Srill wish you a great season!

    1. Rainer,
      though I'm rudely oft ignored

      Not deliberately by me! I have a lot of distractions here -- including a kitten that insists on lap time when I'm using the computer.

    1. A dismal, painfully obvious failure, Rainer. If I were you, I'd quit rrying to get "blood" from this patch of turnips. It ain't never gonna happen, buddy.
