Shot in the... and who's to blame?

Forget all of the fancy-schmancy anniversary cards, the cutesy-wootsey Valentine cards. Nothing will ever compare to this card that my honey bought me on our anniversary/Valentine's day 2002.

Every year he adds another date, and that simple gesture makes me so happy.
The dinner will add to my joy.
 
On this day a long time ago when I was a new teacher, a little three year old came up to me and said, "Teacher, who's that guy who comes around at night, naked and gives you love?" My heart skipped a beat. I thought sure I was going to have to hotline. Then she said, "You know he shoots arrows at you to give you love?"
 
Whew! Cupid.

Hi Linda. I love the card and the fact that Bill adds another year each year. Funny story about Cupid. Happy Valentine's Day to you.

I can attest--Bill is a keeper.

Ha haaahaaa! I would've loved to see your face when that three-year-old posed her question! Very cute! Hope you and Bill have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Linda!

Kids say the darnedest ambiguous things.

Hahahahahha! Kids. And Bill, too. (Reminds me of the Beneficent Mr. Hall. How'd we get so lucky?)

Happy Valentine's, Linda!

And the little kid comment was priceless. Susan
