Love & Support

A big hug and kiss to everyone. This isn't necessarily in celebration of Valentines Day, but mostly just for the love and support. It's not mush...It's all about love. This photo (if you remember from a previous post) was inspired by my wife who escaped my clutches during this shot. xoxoxo Peace~

HAHA. I love that pic (still). Kiss your beautiful wife for me. Thank you for the V-Day wishes. I'm making it through with support from understanding friends like you, UB and X.
Have a GREAT rest of the week. Stay Warm - I hear its a mess on the East Coast like it is here. :)

Hey Stephen,
I hope you and your wife had a lovely and special Valentine's Day! Thanks for listing me on your sidebar (I was somehow hoping I'd get put with the writers and poets!). I like your template (it's the same one for Ballad of Lareaux, if you'll recall); good choice! God's grace and peace be with you today and always. Have a great rest of the week.

Greetings! Thanks for stopping by Original Creations Blog: As for your comment, I leave you with words from an Afrikan Centered Brother about Whoopi G.
He said, "I have less than no respect for Whoopi Goldberg and anything she does. Don't need DNA. Doesn't make a difference which ethnic group. I'm Afrikan."

Thank you for the Valentines wished and Belated Valentines wishes for you as well. My computer had a hiccup yesterday and thought this was a forbidden sex site. Why? I do not know, but I am glad it is fixed so I can once again check in with you.

I hope you had a cozy evening with your Mrs. Here I had a cozy night with my kitty. My honey went to the Wild hockey game without me :( But his friend had a free ticket and I told him to go. Free ticket to a suite at a hockey game... no brainer.

Well, take care and have a great day and stay warm! PS,, love the picture, it is worth repeating it!
