My wife and I took a short trip to the state of Maine early last summer. We didn't prepare ourselves for the cool evenings with the clothing we packed. So the second day we were there, we went to the store and bought a couple of jackets with the state name and emblem on them.

Well, Valentine's Day has come and gone. Am I writing those words a week too late for you, guys? Should I have warned you last week? Are you deep in the dog house? Or did you come through with flying colors?
