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…
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...

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.
I’ve got a collection of “fire” hot sauces forthat very reason… but hopefully I won’t have to use them 😉
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.
Plus, there’s no chalky aftertaste!
And yeah, thanks…I don’t mean to brag, but I done good 😉
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.
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 😉
Sure – it’s not everyday that I get a photo request from a publshed author – whew! Are you sure you’re not in Zimbabewe?
Yep, pretty sure!
Love it! It made me think of all he different things that could be added to sauce packets on a daily basis – I’m going to have some fun with this!
Thanks, Suzie! I’m not sure that Taco Bell will let us back in anymore, by the way…
I can’t imagine why 😉
Love is a many splendored – and saucy – thing, Ned…
Anytime love includes extra sauce, it’s definitely splendid.
I paused listening to American Pie for hot sauce.
Wow! I’m flatterred! And won’t be eating any apple pie now, thanks…
I think you talk a little too fast, Ned. 🙂
My fast talking is how I managed to get her to marry me, so… 😉
You came, you sauced, she conquered…your heart! (And now, to the chocolate sales!)
Very true… especially the first part 😉
Delightful as well as saucy.
We definitely had fun doing it, although we’re banned from that YTaco Bell now.
Nice! Happy Saucy Valentine’s to you!
And back atch’a, Susie! 😉
so sweet, ned!
That is adorable. 🙂 Way better than conversation hearts….
Yeah, and without the danger of chipping a tooth on a stale candy! 😉
Awww that is cute! My daughter’s boyfriend used to work at Taco Bell… I will have to send her that little video! 🙂
Yet another romantic Taco Bell connection!
Nothing like Taco Bell saucy talk on Valentines. Who needs cards?
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. 🙂 Very nice picture.
Awww, thanks, Sue 😉 And you’re right, she truly is beautiful — 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 😉
Love, love, love the video. More please.
Thank you! That was my first experiment with a new Movie app I got. We had a lot of fun with it so… yeah, there will be more 😉
Thanks, Beth 😉
Volcano fire sauce?
My wife is Latina, so she tends to run a little hot…
Let me guess — Taco Bell and then you went home to enjoy your new Love Toilet?
Hahaha! I saw that SNL commercial too! I love the part where their hands meet on the “flush” button!
Sweetest thing ever! You and your wife are a gorgeous couple! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
There are a LOT of exclamation points in that comment! I may have had too many brownies tonight!
Awww, thanks Sandy! And the same applies to you and yours 😉
That was so sweet!
I’m very blessed; we ALWAYS have fun together 😉
