Good Valentine's Day, Canteeners, Troops, and All the Ships at Sea!

Best wishes from the soggy Sunshine State on this romantic day. And I do mean, "romantic", because there's a little anniversary involved.

It was one year ago today that Sarge and The Bride first met. And where was that romantic first date, that led to such wonderful times?

Would you believe...

That's right, Folks. The ever-popular Waffle House! After coffee and late breakfast, and coffee and conversation, and coffee, we cruised on over to the nearby mall and wandered the shops, drank coffee, sat outside and smoked, drank coffee, shared family pics, and parted company.

And the rest rolled on from there...

Here's wishing your sweetheart's day is as ground-breaking as ours was!
