Seeing as today is St Valentines Day, I hereby send this greeting to all at Mudcat.
With the following exceptions:-
Flamers, Trolls, Anonymous Guests, Time Wasters, Banjo players, Accordianists, Drummers, Line dancers, Country & Western fans, Bohdran bashers, Female Cotswold dancers, Lager drinkers, Animal Rights activists, Chorus singers who join in on last line of verse, Folk who insist THEIR version is the ONLY correct way of singing, people who talk loudly at singarounds, musos who *tune* their instrument when others are playing/singing, dog-lovers, horse owners, anti-hunt protesters, womens lib, anyone who is more talented than myself, rich bastards, religeous fanatics, and any person in front of me in the queue.
If you don't fall into one of the categories listed, will you marry me?
Love.....DeadHorse.

And I a maid at your window,
To be your Valentine.

And dupp'd the chamber-door;
Let in a maid, that out a maid

Define "Time Wasters" and "Fanatics". I'm not sure how much more talented I am than you as I have no idea what you would play, much less how well you'd play it. Still, I'd like to know if I should tell you to "Shuv It!!"*BG*

Ooohhh... Too bad for you, Dead Horse. You may have just shot yourself in the foot. Go check out the Mudcat Nearly Nude Calendar (last year's and this year's) and see whether or not you might want to consider revising that list vis. accordion players (there's two of them in there you know, both female).

In the meantime, I won't wish you a happy Valentines Day either.

Funny, Jezebel! I assume you've seen the Far Side comic about accordians and harps? Just thought I'd mention it, being a harpist myself. (For the record, I have nothing against acordion or bodhran players--I like them almost as much as I like bagpipers)

Ah, but Gloredhel, all you harpists will be sitting primly up there in heaven, playing your harps and looking virtuous, while those of us who play the box will be having a grand rollicking time in whatever place we happy and fun loving accordionists go. And if it's for eternity, which place do you think is going to feel more like heaven and which will feel more like hell?

My buddy's wife called and invited me to supper yesterday. Now, was she trying to find out if am seeing anyone, feeling sorry for me because I am not seeing anyone, trying to "remind" me that I am not seeing anyone, trying to set me up with one of her single friends ? Nosy bitch !

Anyway, I declined because I had something very special to do... I had a Valentines's Day coupon for two scallop dinners for the price of one at a fancy restaurant. I showed up at 4PM, in my dirty work clothes, and asked if I could use the coupon for takeout because I didn't have time to get cleaned up so I could dine with my sweetheart, who, I indicated, was out thar in th' pickup, before work. Delicious. The second one will be in the microwave tonight. And the materdee was some happy to help out, too. Nice fella. Ahhh, fine dinnin' bachelor style.

Well, since this thread started as more-or-less (actually more less than more) open marriage proposal, I might as well chime in (This is a musical forum so I have to use a musical turn of phrase ;-)).

This is not directed at Dead Horse since I am a Women's Libber and Dog Lover (and horse lover -- don't own one, but I would if I were rich, and could afford the land and to hire a groom ;-). So I guess that puts me in the potential "Rich Bitch" catagory, too).

Here are the specifications I require:

"Romeos" need not apply. If your idea of romance is to shower a woman with wine and roses, or to compare her beauty to the rising sun while taking long walks on a moonlit beach, you'd be happier seeking that romance elswhere.

If you want someone to help you paint the world's most beautiful mural, or to write the next great epic novel cum joke book, then I'm the woman for you.

If having a conversation that hops from quantum physics to Shakespeare to Bugs Bunny sounds like fun, then I'm the woman for you.

If you'd rather get up early in the morning to volunteer at an elementary school than to stay up late dining and dancing, then I'm the woman for you.

I don't play an instrument, but I do like to sing. And most of the time, I sing in tune. I am also pretty patient, and can tune out most annoying background noise. So you won't have to worry about practicing or trying to learn a new tune (much)`.

If this description fits you, contact me ;-)

I take it that National Impotence Day was a flop, then?
And as for how talented I am, it oozes out of my ears.
Nowhere else, just my ears.........
And I love the sound of the pipes, it brings out my Scottish quarter. My Grandfathers parents were Scots & Irish, everybody else English, so perhaps that makes me bloody Welsh and THAT is why you are all falling over yourselves in haste NOT to marry me!!!
Gotta go, the wife has just come home.

Dead Horse, Sharon A & Liz the Sq: I used to have mixed feelings about Valentines Day because, well-- Feb. 14 is muh date-of-birth. O How cute, sweet-little-Valentines'-baby-boy, hearts&flowers&lace etc. ribbing was sometimes a bit hard to take waaaaaaybackintheday when I was a young feller. Times changed thank God; grew up--well, got old anyway--longago got over it. / So Now yer tellin' me They've made it *National Impotence Day*, too ?? Super!! Hard to take, indeed! again! *Who* did it? Bob Dole? Jeez. Do I hafta go back to being insecure about, um, yknow, the Implications of muh Birfday? Stiffed again, by Golly./ Naaah the Hell with it. Fine by me & it's in a good cause too, I'm shure. Up the Flops, sez I! :)Well, so to speak. Hey, how many other Valentine Babies out there in Muddycattyland, eh? Cmon cmon, 'fess up.

Then again on the *other* hoof, O Deceased Equine One: I studied your qualification tests as stated, and *I pass every darn one of them*---most easily, three just narrowly---EXCEPT for the No Time-Wasters one, which I flunk. (Take now, fer instance. Nonono) BUT if I can eliminate that one via Einstein's proof that Newtonian absolute Time is a fiction, time being purely relative & literally running at different rates for different observers depending on frame-of-reference, velocity, velocipedes, centipedes & other stuff I don't understand; and furthermore being part of a big ol' Space-Time Continuum which is Warped anyway(which I DO relate to, that last part)---WELLLL then: I'm Yours! Let's set the date. Woops! Now MY wife's comin' home too. But maybe the ladies will be reasonable about this. Love will not be denied.

No birthday on Valentine's day, but I find it easy to remember important events if they take place on holidays. Signed divorce papers on Columbus Day a couple of years ago. Never could remember my anniversary, late July, but the divorce is easy! And I bought a house yesterday, so it will be easy to keep track of anniversaries there!

The valentines that have the most meaning for me these days are the ones my kids make for me. Yesterday my 9-year-old came in to breakfast and found an array of chocolate candies I'd left at their places at the table. He disappeared into the laundry/craft room and didn't come out again until he had a quickly manufactured folded heart with a pop-out heart that said "I love you, Mom!"

The only of Dead Horse's categories that semi-fits me is "women's libber" (and that's because the term used these days is feminist). The biggest hurdle to his general proposal seems to be the wife who walked into the conversation in his post of 02:49 PM!! ;-D

Personally, I like the oft-quoted graffiti: A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle.

*Time wasting* is purely a matter of personal opinion, unlike banjo & bohdran bashers who are a blight on the planet. For instance, reading & posting to Mudcat could be considered a waste of time by lesser mortals than we! My definition of time wasting is looking up the ABV of an ale instead of bloody well tasting it!!! How many pints of the stuff it takes to get the rest of the world to seem sane is neither here nor there. I am all for equality of the sexes, but cannot abide womens lib, or any other fanatics, such as The Reliant Robin Owners Club of Batley. That don't mean I don't like Batley, or three wheel bread vans. And Liz the Squeak's stiff upper lip is no good for french kissing, though I am led to beleive it is indispensable for kazoo players and shaving off ones moustache. AND the wife didn't come home at 2:49, that was Mudcat time zoning. I live in the exact centre of my known universe, where time, and by definition, everything else, revolves around me (when I stop spinning, that is)

Diva, you wrote:

Not silly, at all, to my mind. My mother always said that we keep all the ages we've ever been inside us like an onion: the 1 year old inside the 2 year old inside the three year old, etc., on up to our current age.

She also believed that our views of the world and our place in it is pretty much set by the age of ten, so that most of the time (despite an adult veneer of fact and figures and details of history and economics), we look at the world through 10 year old eyes -- until we're scared or upset, and then we revert to 2, and start wishing for Mommy's skirt to hide behind.
