Deena Riley commented, on this blog, that she wanted to hear my take on Valentines Day. I had no thoughts on Valentines Day until I saw my husbands collection of ties hanging on one hanger. Here is a picture of my husband’s ties. That’s a lot of years worth of ties. That’s a lot of years living with an illustrator. That’s a lot of years putting up with framing on the kitchen table, paintings that leak out of the studio into the family room and an awful lot of, “can you show me how to work this crazy computer”? That’s a lot of ties. Happy Valentine’s Day.
