Speaking of a happy V-Day, do you still have the Russian connection?

Night was dark, but the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

Who do you love?

I'd completely forgot about that!

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

Nope.... I think I may have been "black listed" after sending half a dozen "ladies" to Western Union to pick up.... NOTHING!!!

But it sure was fun while it lasted.

Valentine's Day is nothing more than a conspiracy set forth by FTD, Hershey's, Hallmark and Russell Stover.

To those that are celebrating it,have a good one . . . I'll enjoy keeping my money in my pocket

Yeah, I was going to say, engagement rings are typically a whole heck of a lot more than 150 bucks.

Yeah Valentine's Day is really ironic. All the lame guys that don't do anything nice all year get flowers one day and all of a sudden they are the "sweetest guys ever".

I would much rather be nice or buy things here and there all year just because rather than be forced into something one day a year. That being said, yeah I still got her gifts, but they are the sort that lead to a very nice fashion show and can be removed quicker than changing the spark plugs on a 4.6!

Oh yeah Ricerbird: Congratulations, but yeah, $150 engagement ring may need a upgrade later in life. Keep in mind that if you have the right girl it's the thought that counts (of course that right girl is only about 2% of the population!)I just made the same plunge and lets just say it set me back 47.33 times that

But now I'm screwed because I have to invite FEMA to the wedding, after all, they paid for most of it!

In due time, my friend.

BTW, don't settle down yet, your what? 17?

You've got a few years before you even need to be thinking about marriage.

I guess yall are going to live at your parents house, or hers?

well it went like this. we were at the mal and i saw zales over there. so i said come on and i pulled her in there and told her i wanted an idea for a valentines present. so she was looking around a found quite a few she like then she seen this on ring. it was different and its not something you see everyday. and she fell in love with it. so i told them to ring it up. oh man was she suprised. (i love it when she's in a good mood really puts me in one too ) but anyway so it took 7-10 days for sizing. well she didnt know i had it and she came over to my house saturday the 11'th and after 2 hours in my room i suprised her again with the ring wich she didnt know i had back yet but then i asked her to marry me. well needless to say what happened after im sure we dont have to go into detail. but i was a verry happy man. but i didnt pick the ring or look at the price i found out how much it was after they gave me a total. but here is a pic of it. just for reference but like i said i didnt pick it or care how much it was all i know is that she loved it and thats what matters. (also come to find out it was on sale)
