Happy Valentine’s Day!!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day to you!  I have no plans since the first dude is in Casper with my mom.  But I think Dufus and I will take a nice long walk and spend some quality time together.  We might even share a Beggin Strip.  Don’t have plans today?  You should!  Call someone and go out and have an ice cream cone or out for dinner some place special.  We only have one of these days a year…… so take advantage of it and spend it with your honey or a good friend.
