I arrived home from teaching this afternoon
to discover an envelope in the mailbox
hand addressed to me
from Mr. R.
Enclosed was a comic strip
from Sunday's paper.
(I've been so busy I haven't
read the paper for over a week.)
Of course he also included
a funny note.
Love, coupled with humor,
is what life is all about.
A delightful way to end this month of amour.
May you have a most lovely weekend!

The moment I typed
in yesterdays posting I knew instantly
what I would seek for today's viewing pleasure.
Presenting the celebrated
Torvill & Dean
skating in the 1984 Olympics
to Maurice Ravel's
where they won gold
by receiving 6.0 from every judge.
Jim McKay states at the end of the video,
"All perfect marks! All across the board!"

And the ever gracious Peggy Fleming declares,
"We are so lucky to be here to see this.
This is wonderful!"
Enjoy the fluidity of oneness, on ice, for a way good day!

You and your inamorato seeking
new togetherness?
Try any of these three dance styles
for increased affection! You could start with the waltz,
whose "term applies to any one of the several dances
in which two individuals,
a "leader" and a "follower,"
dance with physical contact
through their upper or lower bodies,
or simply their arms
depending on the particular variety of dance.
Since most social dancing is unchoreographed,
this contact is necessary
for the
leader to communicate
the next dance move to the follower,
and for the follower to respond to this insinuation."
I declare activities with our beloveds
involving physical contact and communication
are desirable!

Move on to Latin dance,
which "typically includes dances originating in
Latin America and the Caribbean islands
such as
cha cha cha, rumba, samba, salsa,
mambo, danza, merengue, tumba, bachata,
cumbia, and the bolero."
(I swear some of these sound
like food items...

salsa, meringue and cucumbers.
Also, the first dancers dress looks like a
frothy mixture of pink material.)
Then conclude by dancing the tango
which is "mostly danced in either open embrace,
where lead and follow have space between their bodies,
or close embrace,
where the lead and follow connect either chest-to-chest
(Argentine tango)
or in the upper thigh, hip area
(American and International tango)"
as these couples competing in the
2008 Shangi Dance Competition.
What are you waiting for?
Grab your dancing shoes and start your heart throbbing,
a way good time!

I say to my sweetheart, Mr. R,
"Come, let us grow old together."
We still have m-a-n-y years until we are this age;
we know life passes in a blink.
I hope we live this long,
continue to find and create
joy, laughter, compassion and passion
to stay in love
It makes each and every day a way good one!
The photographer noted this
couple giggled as a teenage couple in love.
I adore it!
I hope this couple also has
many, many years of love ahead of them!

Here's a tension reliever--popping bubble wrap.
Ever notice how

Enjoy a dessert for a stress buster way good day!
(Please order me an abundance of desserts.
Or, lots and lots of bubble wrap; all sorts and sizes.)

At dawn,
Punxsutawney Phil
ventured out of his burrow
on Gobbler's Hill and
saw his shadow.
Buckeye Chuck
also saw his shadow in Marion Ohio;
there we have it, on good authority--
a predicted six more weeks
of glorious winter.
All the more time and supplies provided by
Mother Nature
to make our loves a way good Valentine!
