    I’m thinking your fella has been replaced by a very well mashed potatoe and for the morning, left over mashed potatoe pancakes (mmmmm).
    My fella has been replaced by perogies with way too much sour cream and onions.
    Happy Valentines tummies. xx

    I just ate some cheddar and potato perogies. You will pry carbs from cold dead hands. Kind of like my Wiser’s.

    I love it! This is my kind of poem. we seem to have the same love affair with carbs. My acupunturist told me I want to consider ‘less inflammatory foods’. I asked, “like what” and he said, “like gluten-free”, I said, “you mean like no PASTA!!!” He said, “yes, like no pasta. shhh, this is a calm room” I scoffed and said, “no chance in hell. I’ll live with the pain.”

    Dearest Karen & Fella:

    You make me laugh
    You make me smile
    You make me cry
    Every once in a while

    I love your cats
    I love your chickens
    They are so funny
    Those little dickens

    Thank you for the joy you bring
    Thank you all for everything

    Can’t think of anything else that rhymes
    So won’t you be my Valentine

    Your loving admirer, Nancy

    Happy Valentines Day! XOXOXO
