It's the week of Valentine's and, of course, men are scrambling to find a card or a box of chocolate's, even diamonds, to give to their sweetheart. Women, well, we are ready with a homemade romantic dinner with candles we only bring out once a year. Maybe we'll slip into something more comfortable a little later on.
Growing up, my Dad always got my Mom a card with a monkey on it. A small box Whitman's Sampler chocolates accompanied it.
Mom would always have a card for my Dad, too. They never forgot this holiday.
They still haven't.
