  • rose and thorns; my wife's Valentine's Day gift

    I just finished painting this for my wife. I saw a quotation on facebook and it gave me the idea to paint her a rose instead of buying her one and use a portion of the quotation as part of the image. I've been a thorn in her side for many years so maybe she'll appreciate this. I sure hope so.

    That's lovely. But I'll bet she's sad that you think of yourself as a thorn in her life.

      Sad, Sally?? Nahhhh...she's a realist. She knows I can be a real pain sometimes but she chooses to love me anyway, despite my sometimes less-than-desirable qualities. That's the sentiment behind the gift.
      Thanks for replying.

        I think it is lovely, and I am sure she will appreciate it - I know I would!

          The thorns on a rose represent the bad things in life that happen. Not necessarily the bad traits in a person. If you as a couple can weather the thorns in life is your true test as a couple. The thorns are more like deaths in the family or bad accidents. If you make it through the thorns then you can appreciate the rose so much more.
          I just read this story about the thorns maybe 4-5 months ago. Wish I kept the story so I could post it. It was very cool, but I gave you the Readers Digest version of it.

              I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

              I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

              Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

              Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
