To my Love, Jay! Happy Happy V-Day! I think this is our first V-Day in PTown. As we enjoy our year-long experiment of living in PTown and deciding whether or not to move full time to PTown: as long as it is with YOU, the rest is secondary! Just let my room with a view, be a view with you! —Kevin

To Karen from Joel. Roses are Red and Violets are Blue… it’s our 47th Valentine’s Day together and I could not think of being with anyone other than you! Love and Kisses my Valentine.
Sometimes I need to say more than the cologne “Low-Tide for Men” can convey. Love your curves and your lines, such as the best advice to anyone turning 30, which you gave my sister 20 years ago: “Don’t fart in a Miata.” You should work for Hallmark. Happy Valentine’s Day. —Y.H.
Roses are Red/ Rosé is pink/ It’s nice to smell/ But it’s more fun to drink. Happy Valentine’s Day from Truro Vineyards.
