    Kudos to you, my friend. Stephen Dodgson is a cousin of a mine and recommended this post. For good reason. I find the inside of the typical Valentine card absolutely nauseating. Three paragraphs worth of goop you could shovel out with a pitchfork. Me and mine have been married 46 years, and by now, if we didn’t have some feelings for one another, we’d be fucking gluttons for punishment. No card needed (though noblesse oblige drove me to the store for one anyway), will become a follower of your musings.

    Spot on Gary. I don’t need the world to be painted pink for a day to appreciate my wife. Nor do I need to spend money to convince her, she knows.
    Love Stephen and the rest of the Dodgson family – one of the nicest families anyone could hope to meet. Didn’t send them a card to say it though 😉

    Amen to this article! I take identical views to Mother’s and Father’s Day (with parents’ wholehearted agreement).
