Potato Valentine

   We were newly married. My wife and I had 2 young kids. We didn't have a lot of money and Valentines Day was fast approaching. What a predicament.

   How do you make your wife (your best friend) feel special when you don't have a lot of cash? I mean, aren't we men supposed to swoop our ladies off their feet with a bouquet of roses? Make reservations to the plushest of restuarants while a string quartet plays our favorite song?

   It was very early in the morning when I woke her from her sleep and dragged her to a 24 hour Wendy's Hamburger branch that had just opened a few miles from the house. We bought 2 baked potatoes and smothered butter over them. Those were the best potatoes we ever tasted. It was my best Valentine's morning.

   A few nights ago we had some friends over and all the ladies agreed that love is not conveyed by the lavish presents but by the thought from even the simplest of presents. (Get the hint gentlemen). Not all stereotypes were off though because something that they unanimously wanted was flowers. (Another hint gentlemen).

   So what are you guys planning this coming Valentine's Day? To tell you the truth, I still don't know what we're going to do. I was hoping to gather a few men together and sing to each of our wives but they chickened out. Whatever it will be, I'm sure it won't be expensive and it will be different. TGIF!

Wisdom from Naomi of N Hollywood
Words of Wisdom

Marriage is like a deck of cards ...
In the beginning all you need are 2 hearts and a diamond. By the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.

There's a little old Christian lady living next door to an atheist. Every morning the lady comes out onto her front porch and shouts "Praise the Lord!"

The atheist yells back, "There is no God."

She does this every morning with the same result.

As time goes on, the lady runs into financial difficulties and has trouble buying food. She goes out onto the porch and asks God for help with groceries, then says "Praise the Lord."

The next morning she goes out onto the porch and there's the groceries she asked for, and of course, she shouts "Praise the Lord!"

The atheist jumps out from behind a bush and says, "Ha! I bought those groceries – there is no God."

The lady looks at him and smiles. She shouts, "Praise the Lord! Not only did you provide for me Lord, you made Satan pay for the groceries!"

It was raining hard and a big puddle had formed in front of the little Irish pub. An old man stood beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water.

A curious gentleman asked what he was doing. 'Fishing,' replied the old man. 'Poor old bugger' thought the gentleman, so he invited the old man to have a drink in the pub.

Feeling he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whiskey, the gentleman asked, 'And how many have you caught today?'

'You're the eighth!"

Scammer Pleads for Mercy

This is not a video but a link to an article about a scammer named Harris who gets outwitted. There are some images and languages that are quite offensive but I thought this was a remarkable way to get even. Attention scammers! There's a consequence for your crime!

This is the second time I'm posting this because the video is a lot clearer and it's still fascinating to watch. Pretty clever.
