Here are more great submissions from our wonderful listeners.  Thanks to all who entered!

From Megan Musgrove in Millerton, NY.  She loves Sunday mornings with these two, the radio on and nothing to do.















From Joe Esposito to his wife, Rose.  Happy Birthday Rose!
Rose and I both residents of Ulster County crossed paths in out youth
    without having met.
Once in 1968 I did a painting of a Rose and hung it in my family
Since then we had separate lives, Rose had two children
    Stacy and Matt, and became widowed.
Eventually in 1982 mutual friends (Purple) Steve and Joanie introduced us,
    two years later we married and Rose had two more children Madeline
    and Samara.
    During renovation of my family home in 2009, our friend Bill
    commented when he found the “Rose Painting”
    ” Rose has always been in your life“.
    We take the “Rose Painting” with us to wherever we live. Currently we
    have four children in four decades and you can easily say there is a lot of
    heart on Valentines Day, Rose’s 71st birthday.
    Best to all in sharing such happiness.















From Bridgette Rallo.  A painting she did of her grandson, James Michael.










From Lynn Gage. A photo of her mother and her sister having a good laugh together. One of her favorite depictions of the pure joy and love throughout their lives.















From Melissa.  A drawing she did of her honey and his booty.
