Snow for Valentines Day

Nature can be inconvenient. Here I am, stuck  in the snow and unable to do my Valentines Day shopping. I was just telling the wife that this year I was going to get her dozens of roses, chocolates from Austria, a cheese sampler, an assortment of Steiff Teddy Bears, gold and silver necklaces, and a beer helmet. (gag gift) And here I sit, powerless to spend that money.

So far she's taking it well. I've gone out of my way to be nice -- I let her use the good snow shovel, I reminded her to get the sidewalk too, and I didn't criticize that she missed a spot... But she is a little peeved that this is the second year that I've failed to deliver. Yes, I know there was no snow last year. That was the year I couldn't find my car keys. Believe me, I was just as disappointed as she was.

Maybe next year will be better.

A good snow shovel also makes a great defensive tool. This is why you should retain the good shovel.

Go out and get the shoveling done.

Then tell her she can go shopping now.

Happy St. Valentine's day.
