Do you know that I am not romantic at all? Do you know that I will happily watch a B Thriller over a Chick Flick any day? How about that I ♥ LOVE suspense books but would never pick up a romance? Do these things help you understand how hard this week’s “Love Story” Fun Monday was for me?
Limber and graceful she clung to him.
The moment she touched his firm bark she knew that she must have him in her life for all eternity.
She tried to impress him with her twig imitation. Long and lithe, a perfect blend, she held on through the strongest winds.
When that failed to impress him,
She began to plead. She begged and she begged and told him her need. He simply hung there, with his leafy hair blowing in the breeze.
She used the only tool she had to make a permanent announcement of her love for him. Their names carved in a heart.
‘Love you ~ Rider + Merit 93’
Sorry A Monkey in the Wrong Tree, that’s as mushy as I can get. I found the carving on the birch in the Upper Whiting Park in Whiting, Wisconsin and I am curious about who Rider and Merit are, and if, 15 years later, their love is still as strong as the carving. Just one of Wisconsin’s little mysteries.

Sorry for the quality of the photo but at the moment it is the only one we have of our newest grandson. And I thank our son, Bryan, for snapping it with his cell phone and sending it our way. If all goes as planned we will be snapping photos of him next weekend. :) And yes he now has a name, although they plan on calling him Cole.
