This Valentine's Day, get her what she really wants

The Clipper Coupon magazine came in yesterday's mail.  I always look thru it since sometimes there are some good restaurant coupons in it.  Well this issue is Valentine's related with a cover that says "give her what she really wants".  Can you guess what the woman wants??? Maybe like a day of pampering at the spa?? Or just some time to relax? Maybe, or maybe not. The answer to the age old question of what women want, is answered below.

I went to a nice event a few weeks ago - a work party held by my husband's work. It was held after hours at the Smithsonian Institute Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC. As I've said before and I'll say it again - I love me some nuclear power. Hoity toidy food, open bar, music and Imax.   Plus I got to spend some alone time with the Hope Diamond - without having to be amongst the riff raff and the commoners. Now if only I had thought up a way to lose the security guard.

Nice little bauble:

Similar to what I like to wear around the castle:

 Ohh spooky how the dinosaur has so many ghost bubbles surrounding it.

And now, drum roll please...... the answer to age old question "What do women really want???"

The answer is:  bathrooms, countertops, kitchens, carpeting and sinks.

So God made a farmer....

and they had 11 children and a big barn. One of those children - who grew up to be my aunt - passed away recently at the age of 92. Going thru some old photo albums, I found some barn pics that took back in high school using black & white film. I'm so glad that I have these photos since I don't think anyone in my large extended family took photos of it.

The pond in winter was good for ice skating. Having to shovel it off first - not so much fun.
