A saucy Valentine exchange with my wife

Admittedly, stopping in for some Cinnabon Delights at a Taco Bell on Valentine’s Day doesn’t sound particularly romantic. One might even see it as a precurser to the end of a relationship. But when I am with my wife, a romantic moment can happen anytime, anywhere.

Love has a way of doing that. Even in a random handful of hot sauce packets…


Happy Valentine’s Day from us to you

I was a journalist, humor columnist, writer and editor at Siuslaw News for 23 years. The next chapter in my own writer’s journey is helping other writers prepare their manuscript for the road ahead. I'm married to the perfect woman, have four great kids, and a tenuous grip on my sanity...

  1. Wow! What a fantastically good-looking couple. You should put more photos of you smiling, Ned. It’s a great picture of you both at the end of the video, one to keep and share forever.

    Now, about these cheesy messages on packets of sauce – I hope you collected all the ones about fire fighters so you can give them to your wife on a regular basis. You know, just to remind her that you are her favourite. Ha ha.

  2. A winning video, Ned. Better than the Be Mine little heart candies, those Taco Bell sauce packets. Way more expansive. And you and your wife do make a rather winsome couple there at the end. Good job, my friend.

  3. Ahhh, the Ned channel – it’s new, you know, but very good. It took me twice through to figure out what was happening – but i’m a little slow. Well done Ned, very funny and great picture at the end. i wondered what the face looked like that let out that great laugh when you planted your face in the mud at the bottom of the pole that fatefully windy day. Ha!

    Hey, your book arrived Friday Ned. Thank you very much. Just getting started reading it now.

    1. The Ned Channel will soon be available in UHF… because I’m cutting edge that way.

      So glad the book finally arrived! I was wondering if maybe I had put a zip code for Mars on it. I hope you enjoy it, Paul. And if you are so inspired, send me a photo of you with the book to add to the HATSOL “rogues” gallery I’m working on πŸ˜‰

      1. Sure – it’s not everyday that I get a photo request from a publshed author – whew! Are you sure you’re not in Zimbabewe?

  4. You guys must be spending way too much time together because you look alike. Seriously, she’s absolutely beautiful, Ned. And I suspect a very sweet woman. We know she has the patience of a saint to put up with you. πŸ™‚ Very nice picture.

    1. Awww, thanks, Sue πŸ˜‰ And you’re right, she truly is beautiful β€” and what’s on the inside radiates. She is definitely patient, and can hold her own in the laughs department. No one makes me laugh as much as she does πŸ˜‰

No one is watching, I swear...
