Nah, I'm just a hopeless romantic.

It is curious, though, that only one of us knows who Nora Roberts is.
:)
I've heard of her. I just never read fiction.

Every Valentine's day, my wife and I go down to Walmart\Target\Walgreens\etc. and peruse the card aisle. We each pick out two cards for each other. (1 serious, 1 humorous) After we each read them, we put them back on the shelves and go out someplace nice to eat. Last year, the money that we saved by not buying those cards paid for half of our meal. We figure, what would we do with the cards anyway? They would just sit on the counter or table at home for a week before they got tossed into the recycle bin.
I make a scan of all sides of cards before tossing them out. That way I can look back on them whenever I want.

That's the great thing about the Internet - you don't HAVE to come up with your own ideas.
I don't recall where I saw this many years ago, but it sure wasn't my idea either! The picture that I posted is our rings, though, and I took this picture and had it framed for my wife as a Valentine's present a few years ago. She absolutely loved it then, and still does.

Trust me on this one, guys. You do this, and you be gettin nekkid.

Nora Roberts is the #1 writer of romance novels for the girls. She has more in petty cash than all members here have in their bank accounts. She lives about twenty miles
from where I live in a farm that could be on the cover of any magazine.

Never heard of Nora Roberts, but here’s a love story by the Dread Pirate Roberts:

A MALE FAIRYTALE

Once upon a time, a Prince asked a beautiful Princess,

"Will you marry me?"

The Princess immediately said, "No!"
And
the Prince lived happily ever after,
and
rode motorcycles
and
dated thin, long-legged, full-breasted women,
and
hunted and fished and raced cars,
and
went to titty bars
and
dated ladies half his age
and
drank whiskey, beer, and Captain Morgan,
and
never heard bitching
and
never paid child support or alimony,
and
dated cheerleaders
and
kept his house and guns,
and
ate spam and potato chips and beans,
and
blew enormous farts,
and
never got cheated on while he was at work,
and
all his friends and family thought he was friggin' cool as hell,
and
he had tons of money in the bank,

and


left the toilet seat up.

The End.


Touching, isn’t it?

Yes, very touching.

And right in line with the theme of my original post.

I guess the Prince does not have to worry about VD.
Or maybe he does.

Have you had to change the angle at all for the sensativity?

Awesome suggestion, but she'd never believe I dreamt that up on my own :)
I'm a retired prison chaplain and when i was working I used to get inmates coming to me to ask if I could get some romantic poems for them to send to their girls. I had a book of soppy love poems that lived in my desk and I'd photocopy two or three each time I was asked and the guy would copy them out longhand. Every time I gave any poems to the guy I had to tell him to be careful that he doesn't say he wrote them himself, just say something like, 'I found this poem and thought of you'.

Guys in custody move through relationships fairly quickly, even swapping girlfriends on weekend visits. I always wondered what might happen if a girl got a poem from her guy and he said he'd written it for her, and a few months later she got the same poem from a different guy who also said he'd written if for her. :)

One day a guy came to me and asked me to take some photos to another inmate in a different wing. Requests like that get an immediate 'Sorry, mate, I can't do that' but I asked him what the photos were. It seemed his girl had sent him some racy photos of herself and somehow the mail inspection allowed them to go through. The girl had left him for another inmate and he wanted me to give that other inmate the racy photos.

Valentine's Day works very differently in the world of prisons. :)

It is every day, when you marry the right woman.
I couldn't agree with this more. I lucked out when I met my wife, and any woman who can put up with me for 30 plus years is an Angel! I might tease her and pick on her a bit on the message boards (and in person!) but wouldn't have a clue what to do without her. SSHardball22...I bet a lot of these guys are hopeless romantics, they're just afraid to admit it :)

I think you might be right, based on the number of pictures that guys have posted on this thread. After all, we are just a bunch of ruff 'n' tuff bikers.
