Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

Valentine’s Day is just 10 days away and the search for someone special or something special for your special someone can sometimes be challenging.  Today, finding that special person to share your life with is much easier with technology.  There are many dating sites where both men and women put in their ideas about the perfect match and before you know it, you have a list of prospects, but what did we do before computers?  Many of us found our special person by chance, others were introduced by friends and others resorted to the media.  Newspapers and magazines publish “personal” ads whereby the readers can respond to someones request.   These personal ads have been around for quite some time.  During the Civil War two such ads (with poems) ran in Lynchburg’s  Daily Virginian,

February 19, 1863

Wife wanted-I am anxious to marry-have sufficiency to take care of a wife–have been in service for eighteen months, but am now exempt for the war, have heretofore surrendered to no Arms, but am now willing to surrender to a Woman’s.

 I want a handsome, gentle wife,
To share the joys and sweets of life,
I’m neither old, ugly nor cross
I’ll give up the pants and won’t be boss
Address immediately, Volunteer, Howardsville, Albemarle co., Va.”
 

February 26, 1863

“Husband Wanted.  A Lady of Lynchburg who is tired of living in maiden style and would be willing to become ‘Boss’ proposes the ‘Volunteer’ will come up and make himself known.  He must be tall, handsome, good, intelligent, rich and elegant, otherwise he might as well stay where he is, as there are any number of that sort here already.-

She will make a gentle wife,
Will share the joys of life,
Is beautiful – not cross
Will take the pants and Will be the Boss,
He must give her all she wants
Not use her ill – or harass with taunts.
Must love her as a good man should,
She will love him, as only a woman could.”
 

If you are looking for a special getaway with that special person we invite you to stay at The Carriage House Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lynchburg.  Like the above ads/poems this home was built in the same era and you can enjoy your our grand mansion or carriage house which is elegantly restored having many of the original elements of the home when it was built.  To make your celebration even more special, we will include a chilled bottle of Prosecco, when you mention this blog post when making your reservation.  In February we will be making our famous Chocolate Waffles.  This is the third year for our chocolate waffles and this year’s recipe (look for it in a later post this month) promises to be the best yet!

Kathy and I wish all you you a Happy Valentine’s Day and wish this day be filled with joy and happiness.
