Happy Valentine's Day to the Muse...

...and all his fans.

Hopefully he will have someone sweet and feisty to spend the day with.  While I prefer to exchange gifts and love on non-holidays (just for the principle of thing and because I think these things should flow freely from the heart, not just because someone has given it a special day), I do love to watch men scramble to pick up last minute little tokens of their affection in order to stay out of the doghouse with their significant others.  

Consolation Prize
While I understand that some men are organized and plan for these things in advance, I am always feeling just a little bit sorry for the helpless schlubs forlornly looking at the picked over flowers, some already looking wilted, and hoping it will be enough.   While some do it with great gusto, knowing their gifts will be met with affection and perhaps something extra special in the physical realm,  there are others looking so hang dogged in fear they will probably be sent off to the sofa without dinner if they don't pick up SOMETHING for the little lady at home.

If you are lucky enough to be attached to someone who thinks you are the hottest thing on the planet and treats you as such "every day" of the year and not just on Valentine's Day, then you are truly blessed and you have my heartiest congratulations.   If you get the same treatment on Valentine's Day as well, well there are no words....  You've hit the jackpot!

For everyone else, here is a consolation prize...one of my favorite, fairly current pictures of the Muse.

Happy Cupid's day all!
