Secret Admirer

While in military training, I was friends with two young women, one of them was having problems with her boyfriend. They had been together so long, frankly, he just took her companionship for granted. Any young man would have been proud to have this girl as a friend or wife, should she accept a proposal. Her nickname was Foxy.

As Valentines neared, I was invited to the home of the women for a holiday meal. That afternoon, a delivery of flowers Harrogate, one dozen long stem red roses, arrived for Foxy. She was ecstatic, telling her boyfriend thank you, repeatedly. Then she saw the note that someone called Jabberwocky had sent them. Foxy was speechless. Her boyfriend was stunned and upset. Two weeks later he asked her to be married. They have been married 40 years. I believe sending those roses was one of the nicest things I have ever done.
