    I never know when I might want "something" from the wife.. you know such as a new smoker. Besides the dreaded Woman's Day (February 14th) will be here before you know it.

    I'm game if you can show us a thing or two without too much hassle.

    Womans Day? You mean the overly commercial, money grubbing, blood sucking Valentines day? That is in February right?

    Twistertail - nothing wrong with paper plates once in awhile but paper cups? Yuck!

    I have hopefully changed a lot of my girl friends minds. They will talk about what their hubby or boyfriend will be getting them. I then ask what are you getting for him? Usually the answer is nothing. I remind them that it's not man buys woman day, it's sweetheart day. Usually me and the hubby just go out for dinner together.

    We do that all year long, not just on VD. Sometimes he'll bring me a doz roses back if he goes out to the store for something, sometimes I'll send him flowers to his work place for something different. We cook special meals for each other...cleaning the kitchen after he's done is a different story...we've also been working on our now 13 year old son. Since he was 8 he was in charge of a meal now and then, which included setting the table with the good stuff. My son will be able to impress a lady friend once he gets older. Our first VD together I put a menu together for him of different selections and once a month I would cook a special dinner that he picked off the menu, of course with a nice wine selection...

    BTW, it's hard to not be a happy woman when you're married to a jeweler!!! [​IMG] Love those surprise presents!!

    Shell -
    Now that's what I consider romatic - a no reason just because day! I'd rather give gifts just because - it's more fun and never expected. When I see something that stikes me as a special thing for someone I get it then - if I can afford to - and give it then. I'm not big on commerciallism.

    Of couse I'm more likely to get excited over a new drill bit than roses but that's probably because my Mama (who loved roses and grew up in the depression) would always jokingly say "Oh they're beautiful, but all the pasta I could have bought!" [​IMG]

    Definitely train that thirteen year old how to set a great table. There's something sooo sexy about a man that can set a mood.

    In barbecue we eat with our senses including our eyes, so why should the presentation be lacking? I was always proud that my kids might not be president but they sure as heck know how to garnish a plate and to fold a napkin a hundred different ways.

    Mike, I think it's a great idea and I ask the powers that be to start a "table setting contest" forthwith! Pictures from now til Valentines, so we can include the Thanksgiving and Christmas settings. Surely we'll all have something smoked as the centerpiece?
