A great Bo Diddley blues song went a little something like this...
I walk 47 miles of barbed wire,
I use a cobra-snake for a necktie,
I got a brand new house on the roadside,
Made from rattlesnake hide,
I got a brand new chimney made on top,
Made out of a human skull,
Now come on take a walk with me, Arlene,
And tell me, who do you love?
Who do you love?...
Not exactly the most romantic of Valentine’s Day songs, but it does have a nice little home improvement twist to it. Or not.
On this day, I hope you’re well aware of who you love. If you’re lucky, you’re blessed enough to not only know who you love, but what you love. For me, it’s my wife and our classic Cape Cod home. As much as I shake my head and swear under my breath at this home, I love it more than any other dwelling I’ve ever known.
So, on this Valentine’s Day, what do you love?
