Jumping Straight Into My Lover's Arms


~You must remember this,
a kiss is just a kiss,
a sigh is just a sigh~


Today I'm joining Jill over at her Porch Club.  I've told y'all before that the window at W&T's is one of my "front" porches.  I spend so much time there with my rear-end waving at the passing cars...it just seems fitting to include it today with one of my crazy relatives doing the waving for a change!  Remember...here in the South we like to put our eccentric family members out for the whole neighborhood to see...and Sweetie Pie is just like one of the family!

~Let me tell you 'bout the birds and the bees~

If there is anything your mama forgot to tell you...just ask Sweetie Pie.  This is one lady-in-red that has been around the block or two...and back!
Me?  I'm just hoping this Valentine to make Cat Daddy so happy...he'll look like the cat that ate the proverbial canary!


~Kiss me twice, once more; thrice, make it four
What a break for heaven's sake
How long has this been goin' on?~


(Times are tough...inflation even tougher, but here at W&T's, a kiss is still just a quarter!)
Whatever you have planned for Valentine's...you can tell me.  I promise not to breathe a word to a soul...cross my heart!


~She had...mmm, mmm...kisses sweeter than wine!~

Are you planning a romantic dinner for two?  If you're stuck for ideas, my Frito chili pie recipe is only a coupla posts back, but only if you're looking for something to heat things up a notch or two!  Just add the house wine of the South and you're good to go!  Best part...less clean-up time...more make-out time!

~Kiss me once, then kiss me twice and kiss me once again.
It's been a long, long time~

I know one thing...it's been a long, long winter!  As much I love Cat Daddy (and I do...a lot), and even though is is the day of L-O-V-E...I'm ready for a minor change!  So much togetherness is challenging.  After all...absence (just not today sweetheart) does make the heart grow fonder!


~My funny Valentine,
sweet comic Valentine

Jill asked for special recipes to be included in this post and I was going to share mine for a favorite around the Casita de Trash...Texas Chocolate Sheet Cake, but then I found THIS !  Katie bar the door...this makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it!  I am so gonna try this 'cause as good as mine is...three layers of cake, sandwiched with ganache and then topped with chocolate pecan frosting (do you see the tiny heart in the frosting?)...OH LAW...this can only be three times better!  Besides...remember what your mama taught you?  The quickest way to a man's heart is always through his stomach and this one is guaranteed not to deliver heartburn or a u-turn...only a come-hither yearn...and maybe, just maybe...a new trick for an old dog to learn! 


Your looks are laughable
I'll say...take a gander at that hat!  She's such a diva!  BTW...blown kisses are on the house!


 Unphotographable
Or at least not by me through a window on a sunny day!


Yet you're my favorite work of art.~
And by that...I mean y'all...every last, lovely one of you!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL MY FAVORITES!

XOXO

You had me at chocolate pecan frosting ... Mmmmmmm.

Your post is very amusing, as always ... but I have to say, your Sweetie Pie seems to be a little 'cold' and 'stiff' ... I really envisioned your family being much more warm and animated ; }

Thanks for the smiles my funny Valentine!

I'm lovin' the kissing booth! How cute and cleaver. Happy Valentine's to you and your Cat Daddy. Me, tonight, I've got a date with my little 18 month old granddaughter so her daddy & mommy can go celebrate Valentine's Day the right way! Nice dinner & drinks & each other. I've gotten Valentine kisses from all three of my grandbabies today, so my life is GOOD!!!

Take care, Sue
