Happy Valentine’s Day To Me

I often talk about the many interesting and wonderful things I find on my kitchen counter when I wake up in the morning.

Valentine’s Day is no exception.  Ralph and I had gone on an excursion yesterday because he wanted me to pick out a box of candy.  I was going for something small, about the size of a saucer.  He would have none of that.

This is what I picked out along with what I found with it on the counter this morning when I got up…



Nearly a pound of truffles.  What shall I do with them?!   😉     I love the drawing he did for the front of the card.  Take note that the envelope is cut and the drawing is set into it. That’s because the envelope to my card was red and Ralph doesn’t like to draw on the dark color if he doesn’t have to.  So he added it!

The inside was the best though.  I don’t know how many of you are familiar with Animaniacs.  It was a wonderful, hysterical animated series done by Stephen Spielberg back in the 90’s.  It’s always been one of our favorites.

Well, Ralph thinks I look like Dot, one of the characters.  This was the inside of my card…



If you’re not familiar with the show, you should become familiar with it so that you can appreciate how amazingly good this is. He is hysterical with things like this.  He’s crazy and I Love Him!

Happy Thursday!  Happy Valentine’s Day!

  5. What a wonderful Valentine’s present you have there! And I LOVE the card! For me, nothing beats home made cards. My hubbie made me one too, which he spray painted with a silhouette of a little boy handing flowers to a girl. That was all I needed. It made me feel very special indeed 😉
    Have a wonderful Valentines day Fran! Lots of love to you & your loved ones xx

  6. I looooved the Animaniacs! The card is too fabulous–and so sweet! Enjoy your candies and the rest of your Valentine’s Day 🙂

    • Allie, how did I know you would love Animaniacs?! One of the cable channels here is showing them, in fact they’re having a President’s day marathon. Sadly we have a funeral to go to. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  7. This is super cute! I guess you can keep him around for another year…lol. Enjoy the rest of your Valentine’s Day!

  8. You are one lucky girl! I love the Animaniacs and Ralph did a super job capturing Dot as you…he’s a clever, talented guy! My honey sent me a box of chocolate covered strawberries from Shari’s Berries. I received them at work and of course everyone wanted to put them in my car for me…or so they said! I didn’t have the heart to check the calories…hey, it’s Valentine’s Day…it doesn’t count, right?

    • Judy, you are right, it does Not Count!! I know how lucky I am, Ralph is wonderful, crazy and talented. You are also incredibly lucky. Bill is the Best, and I would tell him that to his face! Hugs to both of you!! 🙂

  9. Awww, I love the Animaniacs! My parents thought the theme song for Katie Kaboom was accurate for me during my teen years! 🙂
