1. When was the last time you had a heart to heart talk with someone? A change of heart? Experienced figurative 'heart failure?'

Honestly that must be ages ago, because I really can't remember ! The time of broken hearts is loooooong over ! Except if someone empties his heart and I only have to listen. That happens quite often.

2. Champagne, chocolates, flowers...what's your Valentine pleasure? Any special plans for the day?

I fly away to Egypt and stay there for 2 weeks. We have never celebrated Valentine just wasn't the use, now since a few years it has swapped over from the States. But it's mostly for the younger generation and only between couples.

3. Are you a hopeless romantic or do you fall more in the category of practical and pragmatic? What's a gesture you find romantic?

I think I am all in one ! I don't find gestures romantic, but a beautiful sunset or sunrise or a landscape, a silvery sea, waves, waterfalls etc. Even a grazing cow is romantic ! 

4. Do you ask a lot of questions in life or are you pretty content with what you already know?

I am curious so I will never stop to ask questions when I don't know something

5. Your favorite power ballad ?

Ignoring what a power ballad really means and there is no satisfactory translation, I have no idea. If it's a kind of song I have several favorites. It changes. For the moment it's Hallelujah

Although the last time I heard it was at the funerals of my neighbor. I am not sure that people understood the lyrics but they understood the music and the word "hallelujah" as most of them only speak French.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

For two weeks !!!

It takes a lot of men standing around and a photographer to fix your problems. I was married on Valentines Day many years ago. I still have my wedding dress but not much else.
My sister's son died suddenly six months ago and Hallelujah was played at his funeral, made me cry to hear it again though the lyrics are a bit strange.
Enjoy your stay in Egypt, your second home.

Two old women were sitting in front of us on a domestic flight to a warm and tourist area. "Mavis, did you remember the condoms? Especially the extra large."

"Yes, and I got good lube".

So those were left out of your holiday packing graphic. I doubt I could visit Egypt without either.

They are noisy, but when you get you internet fixed it's a good thing.

Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥

I was in Egypt in 1975 when everything in the National Museum was open and accessible. We could even touch the thousand year old mummies and King Tut's treasures. Then a couple years later, we couldn't believe we had to stand in line for 7 hours in New Orleans to see the King Tut exhibit under lock and key. Hope you have a wonderful trip.
