Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments Thanks for alerting me, Alice.
I've edited the post and made the correcton.

I had February in my mind because I was already thinking of next month's book selection for our town library's book group. You can see it here: ====>

I agree with you... I'd hate to miss Valentine's Day... (chocolate!) and our 49th Anniversary on Feb. 20 ... and our son's 48th birthday on Feb. 15. Can't believe that January is almost over.

January has gone fast and I am glad! Congratulations on your 49th coming up. WOW, your son was almost a Valentine. Winston Graham wrote a book about a man born on Valentine's day and I think his name was Valentine. It was the Ross Poldark series which was super popular when I lived in England and he was the big heart throb then.

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments I wonder if Rudolph Valentino was born on Valentine's Day. (g)

Gee, I haven't thought about him in a long time.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_...

The Wiki website above says he was born May 6, 1895.
I didn't realize he died so young... at 31 years of age from peritonitis.

Here's a link to: Winston Graham . I see he wrote quite a few books.

That is sad about Rudolph Valentino. Yes, I read all those Winston Graham and own most of them. I think The Black Moon is the one that is about Valentine. I started reading those when I was in England (Suffolk) and watching it on TV.
My picture now is the first book in the Twilight series. (for those who like vampire books)
Oh, Winston Graham wrote Marnie which Alfred Hitchcock made into a movie I liked. (with Tippi Hendren)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments I remember Marnie. ====>

I see Winston Graham's name among the credits for the book.
