Happy Valentine's Day from Dominion Fertility

DrG wishing you all an early Happy Valentine's Day just in case I don't make it home in one piece given the "wicked" (Bostonian for very impressive) storm that blew through here last night and today....

My parents were married for 67 years. That is a very impressive accomplishment. Somehow they made it work although there was certainly a fair amount of yelling at times...
