Good morning, Netizens...

Happy Valentines Day!

So what do you do for that special person in your life when Valentine's Day calls? You send flowers. Here are a lovely bunch of roses contributed by one of our finer photographers and the cards that accompanied them:

Sorry I gave you the clap. Although the doctor gave me a shot to cure it (you did go see your doctor, right?) perhaps these roses will help make it all better. Signed, Lover Boy

Aside from the fact I have never once cleaned up my collection of broken-down cars in the back yard, which I know infuriates you, please accept these roses as a symbol of my promise to take care of my Yugo collection just as soon as the snow melts. Signed, Hot Rod

I was going to buy you one of those spendy diamond pendants like you admire on television so much, but then I got a really good deal on a set of snow shoes at Cabella's so all I could afford right now are these roses.Cost Saver

I promise never to go to the navy bean soup dinner at the Norwegian Hall again! Sorry you didn't get any sleep last night. Happy Valentine's Day. Signed, Toots

I never can remember what day is what, but at least this time I think I got it about right. Happy Lincoln's Birthday. Signed, On Time for a Change

And for everyone else, Happy Valentine's Day!
