I’m being snarky today. Ever since Sunday night’s episode of Downton Abbey, I’m using the word “stuff” a lot. They kept saying “stuff” in their dialogues and it bugged the heck out of me. If they’ve used that particular word before, I never noticed it. It just smacks of…anachronisms. And that gets under my skin. It’s just so uncharacteristic of this particular program.
Anyway, speaking anachronisms…I took some photos of some of the old Valentines that have crept into my house. They belonged to a teacher here in town who my mother-in-law took care of in the teacher’s last years. Not sure how they ended up here, but I couldn’t bear to throw them away. So, they’ve resided in my paper doll drawer and are pulled out each Valentine’s Day to decorate the place up a bit.
OK, so it’s not as easy to take pics of these things as I thought.
For some reason the next one has always appealed to me.
And this was posted by a Christy friend, Marilyn today on Facebook:
There are tons more in the drawer, but these will do for now. My Valentine to all of you!!
