Love is . . .

Old Mr SL sleeps!

Old Mr SL sleeps!

 – On the Inside! 

Old Mr Spaghetti Legs doesn’t look so hot when asleep! But I love him to bits anyway, and I think the feeling is mutual – certainly when I have a treat in my hand!

I don’t ‘do’ Valentine’s Day and consider it a commercial money-making racket. If you love someone you don’t need to spend extortionate amounts of money on one particular day to prove it!  And there are many very eloquent posts out there in WP land if you want to read more.

However, why not listen to a rather different Valentine’s Day song –

Valentine’s Day by David Bowie

David and me – ageing gracefully together! (ahem)

      Aw – he is a funny old boy! But has fitted in as if he was always here. Hard to believe we’ve only had him about 16 months. 🙂
      Sleeping with his tongue out is his speciality! 😀

        He is over 13 years old, and was in the rescue centre for nearly 11 years! So it was definitely time for him to have a home of his own 🙂 Little Monkey I have had for 8 years!! 🙂

    First thought…David Bowie…oh yes! Second…looks like someone fell asleep licking the rug. Third…I agree…All days are just another day and those set aside for monetary gain are just money grabs. Having said that…we still celebrate Christmas (yes another corporate day if you choose to let them in your pocket and not the birth of Christ if there is one)…but we do…in our own way.

    I too don’t favor expensive gifts or special gifts for an occasion 🙂 I would rather buy some thing I really like,even a trinket and give it to my dear ones on any day 😀
    Trendy song !!! Nice 🙂 Loved the guitar base 😀

      This is what I mean – I am certainly not against Love – but rather the commercialism of this day!
      Much nicer, like you do, to think of someone just because, and tell them or give them something regardless of the day. 🙂

    His tongue looks like a Valentine. 🙂 I agree about the expense of it all. My husband puts out the same card for me every year. lol Keeps it in his drawer until the next year. We laugh about the card every year.

    My parents had a dog who could hear a toffee wrapper at 100 yards and sniff out sausage rolls at 200. Spoilt rotten, loved to bits, and lived to be 17. My hound is curled up on the bench after a nice long walk this morning whilst Hubby’s doing the weekly wash. Rewards for both are a cooked breakfast!!
