Who Says Poetry Doesn't Pay???

I hope everyone had as great a Valentine's Day as I did. As I posted earlier, my Valetine's Day present for my wife was to write her a poem which I published on a card I created.

She loved the poem, even cried a little when she read it. So she said, "You gave to me from your talent, so I'm going to give to you from one of mine that you enjoy."

So she proceeded to make for me one of the best steak dinners I've ever had in my life.

I definitely came out on the best end of that exchange!

See why I say that when I married Cat, I felt like the man who won the lottery! Still do.


The dinner looked something like this only with Twice Baked Potato, Steamed Green Beans, and, of course, Mushrooms!
