A tender embrace...
Thanks to Google I know a little more now:
"Archaeologists have unearthed two skeletons from the Neolithic period locked in a tender embrace and buried outside Mantua, just 25 miles south of Verona, the romantic city where Shakespeare set the star-crossed tale of Romeo and Juliet.
Buried between 5,000 to 6,000 years ago, the prehistoric lovers are believed to have been a man and a woman and are thought to have died young, as their teeth were found intact, said Elena Menotti, the archaeologist who led the dig."
Well, what with February having started and it being the month of love and everything, I felt it only appropriate to post this. Eternal love, ey? Who would have thought it was anything but a hopeful concept...and then archeology shoves this in your face!
One of these days I am gonna get me some of that!
"Beware the Ides of February!"
Happy Birthday, MOM! You are turning 59 today...sorry, it just came out before I could stop myself :) And although you can drive me nuts, quite easily...not a day goes by that I don´t remember how wonderful you are.
Now; I know I can be difficult at times, mouthy most days and cynical every hour...and although I pretend to be annoyed when you pass on your advice, my ears still listen.
10 years we have been together now and I know that the person I am, has a lot of you in her. Thank you, ´cause frankly...together we rock.
See you in the morning!
