Fourteen Days of L-O-V-E

And now it's February. The pretty heart shaped chocolates are stockpiled on store shelves. Every other commercial aims to make men think that they're complete jerks if they don't buy jewelry for that special someone. The freak radiation experiment sized teddy bears and monkeys wearing red satin boxer shorts have been in stores for at least two months now. Ah...love. Ain't it grand?

In honor of the holiday, I'm going to challenge myself to do a post a day until Valentine's Day about what I feel is in some way related to love, romance or Valentine's Day. Just to get this party kicked off and to show you that it won't be all lovey dovey hearts and flowers, today's post is a photo of my Great Uncle Rufus and two ladies who I can not identify.

It just screams Valentine's Day to me. I'd love to be able to know what they were each thinking at the exact moment this photo was snapped. I didn't go to prom but I imagine that my face would have been like the lady's on the far right if I had:

"I put on control-top pantyhose for this?"




Until next time,
x's and o's,
Eartha

No one looks comfortable in this picture! The ladies look like they stuffed thier feet into those shoes and thier dogs are barkin'! Your poor Uncle looks like his suit is part boa constricter and is going for the kill! It is pleasantly red and pink though and it would make a killer v-day card!
