Kim Reade of Waynesboro, Virginia won last weeks contest on INVOLVING
YOUR CHILDREN IN YOUR ROMANTIC SCHEMES.  I titled her entry *Tokens of our Love.* Read her winning idea and others at:
http://theromantic.com/stories/children/main.htm

This weeks contest is about Valentine’s Day CARDS.  Sure, you can go
to the card store and buy a pre-made card and sign your name.  Better
yet, you do what they did years ago — people MADE their own
valentines.  Share the story about a creative valentine card you have
made for your sweetheart or that your sweetheart made for you.

THE ADULT TOY STORE
by Michael Webb

A while back Athena and I were in Chicago visiting some friends.  They
took us to see some of the sites in the city.  We went to the Museum
of Art.  We saw the lake.  We walked around and saw some great
architecture.  When we were tired and a little hot, we thought we
would duck into a store to cool off a bit.  We went inside Hammacher
and Schlemmer.

Hammacher and Schlemmer is similar to the Sharper Image and Brookstone stores that have items that nobody really needs, but are cool
nonetheless.

We tested out all the neat gadgets and inventions.  We tried the
massage chairs and the foot massagers.  We tested out the various
hammocks and swings.  We tinkered with the games, puzzles and other
expensive merchandise.  We “played” for over an hour.  It is perhaps
the most memorable part of our Chicago weekend.

Just as kids love to roam through Toys R Us and other toy stores, we
adults had a great time in this “toy store” for adults.  Now, this is
the kind of window shopping I can handle.
