Yes, folks, once again it's Valentines Day.
Here's my Valentine from long ago. Her name is Judy though she's referred to on this blog as SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed).
I've been obeying her now for many years.
From back when I used to tote around a 35 mm SLR camera. And from when I might have said something like this to her.
Time marched on, as it does and 42 years later most of our hair has changed color.
You're still my Valentine, Judy. I love you.
But wait! There's more!
Today is also a rather momentous birthday. The state of Arizona is 100 years old today. The story goes that the paperwork was ready by February 12th but it was decided not to sign it because it might detract from Lincoln's Birthday celebrations. So two days later, on February 14th, 1912, Arizona became the 48th state in the Union.
Happy birthday, Arizona.
