A few weeks ago we went to
and they were showcasing their orchids.
Now, I'm not a big flower guy.
I don't hate em
but I can only name you about 5 different kinds.
I visit Longwood often because
my wife IS a flower girl.
So, happy wife, happy life kinda thing.
Seriously, Longwood is a great place to kill a few hours
even if your not big into flowers.
Anyway, when Valentines Day popped up
about a week after seeing the Orchid display,
it seemed pretty obvious
what the flower of choice should be this year
for my wife.
And I haven't killed it yet.
This is why
getting a small dog seems to make more sense.
I either need a bigger car or a smaller dog.
Pictured above is Ginger
as we returned home from the vet yesterday.
Ginger's not as spry as she used to be
and needs help getting off the floor.
Climbing into the backseat of a car
is a distant memory for her
and hasn't been accomplished since the Bush administration,
so as I lift at her shoulders and my wife lifts from the rear
we somehow manage, with laughter,
to get her into the car.
Yep, definitely need a bigger car.
