                            The Ring
Country music blared and pounded through the bar and dance hall as couples two-stepped around the cavernous room. The band switched to a slow, belt-polishing tune.
Janetta Simonson smiled as women dressed in skimpy skirts with even skimpier tops, along with cowboy boots, clung to their men like flies to fly paper.
Valentine’s Day. A day for couples to show their love to each other—or so she’d heard. She didn't understand why they waited for this ‘special’ day. In her opinion, people should express their love for each other every day. She tapped her short, unpainted nails.
Where was he, anyway? A trickle of excitement ran through her. His calling to tell her to meet him here had been a surprise. She just knew this was going to be the big day, or night as the case may be. He may not be the man of her dreams, may not make her heart race and loins beg for his touch, but at the ripe age of twenty-eight, she wanted to be married and start a family. Fred was the only one to pay attention.
As hokey as it seemed, she’d always dreamed of a Valentine’s Day proposal. Except, instead of a honky-tonk bar, the man she loved took her to a fancy restaurant, got down on one knee, and voiced his undying love. Or he’d take her on a moonlit walk along a beach and pop the question under the stars, with the sound of the surf as a romantic backdrop.
A hand pressed on her shoulder. Finally. She rose and turned. At five foot nine, she stood tall enough she could see the top of Fred's scalp through his thinning hair. He hated exercise of any kind and loved food of all kinds, so a small paunch rode over a large, silver belt buckle. He twisted a cowboy hat around in his hands.

  1. I have to say this very weekend. My fiance and I started out early, Thursday went to a motivational luncheon and stayed overnight at a local historic B & B. We brought gourmet appetizers, wine, pink roses from him, a bunch of balloons from me and had a wonderful time. The next day we went to the beach and he took me to dinner so we avoided the overcrowding. We were too tired to see "The Movie" so we braced the crowds yesterday afternoon and went to see 50 Shades of Grey. It was fabulous!
