Valentine's Day


After my sister Cindi's hubby did the math on how may Valentine's Days
they had been together.  I did our math.  This is year 46.  We started going together
in the spring of my sophmore year in high school.  Neither of us ever went with anyone
after that.  You could call us highschool sweethearts.

2006 on our 40th Anniversary Trip to England

Wedding day November 20, 1966

Stars shinin' bright above you,
Night breezes seem to whisper, "I love you,"
Bird singin' in the sycamore tree,
Dream a little dream of me.

Say "nightie night" and kiss me,
Just hold me tight and tell me you'll miss me.
While I'm alone and blue as can be,
Dream a little dream of me.

Stars fading, but I linger on, dear.
Still craving your kiss,
I'm longin' to linger 'til dawn, dear.
Just sayin' this...

Sweet dreams 'til sunbeams find you,
Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you,
But in your dreams, whatever they be,
Dream a little dream of me.

"Dream a Little Dream of Me" is credited to Fabian Andre and Wilbur Schwandt
