VALENTINE DONKEY RETURNS
As is our custom, Honeybuns and I exchange Valentine Cards on THE day every year. It usually goes like this: I place a funny card on his bathroom mirror the night before so he will find it as he gets ready for work early on Feb. 14th. Later he will find a very serious, mushy, full of "vows of continued love card" in his briefcase as he opens it at work.
He does the same! I'll find a funny card in the bathroom, another by a huge bouquet of flowers in the kitchen as I get ready for my day. It's great! We've settled into a predictable tradition!
I wasn't aware that we were SO VERY PREDICTABLE! I think we're in a RUT!!
You see, the DONKEY CARD appeared AGAIN! I vaguely remembered seeing this fellow in years gone by. As I dug through my "special cards" box, found deep in the bottom of a dresser drawer, there HE WAS! As I investigated I realized this donkey has made an appearance on Valentines Day for the past FOUR YEARS!
The above picture is the proof!
Honeybuns couldn't believe it! If I had not saved these cards, he would NEVER have believed it.
Yep, I've received the same funny card FOUR YEARS IN A ROW! Unintentionally!!!
I've often remarked that "every day is a new day." Evidently "every card is a new card!"
Now, I'm sure some psychiatrist somewhere could have a hey-day with this.
I'm chalking it up to old-age, dementia, and HALLMARKS very talented artists.
OR.....maybe we're just in a rut! Changes are coming for February 2014!!
