Pickled Pink

The title is a terrible pun, I know. You’ll understand how it fits in a moment.

First off, staffers working for his physician gave my husband the nickname “Mr. Pickles” due to all the jarred dills he has taken since last season’s boon. I, of course, thought immediately of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”.

Though the mythical Hyde is the insane one, and my husband the more emotionally stable partner, I suggested calling ourselves “Mr. Pickles and Dr. Gherkin”. Amused, he embraced this occasional joke.

Fast forward to our anniversary last week.

He went grocery shopping alone, bless his heart, and decided to peruse the greeting card aisle. We have long followed a feline theme for all holidays, so he sought a change. He went so far as to look outside the anniversary section, which he found limited thanks to the United States celebrating Fathers today.

No doubt you can imagine where this is going…

A Clear Forwarning
He indeed discovered one featuring a pickle. And it's hilarious inside and out.

I almost choked upon seeing this...
The inside surprised me again. This dude is so cute...

The use of his first initial references "Bram Stoker's Dracula"
(Gary Oldman's vampire signed documents this way)
Even the back of the card is cheeky. I had to point this out to my SO.

It's the Little Touches that Enhance the Fun
Do you think I should follow this new trend, perhaps seek a general food theme to broaden the opportunities?



  1. That is too funny :( I like the new theme. Penny thanks you for displaying her badge. XO

    1. I'm glad to give you a giggle and honored to show off Penny. Hugs to you and yours, my dear.

  2. I love it. Humor in a marriage is a good thing and this will stick. I'm sure of it.

    Have a fabulous day and happy anniversary to you both. ♥

    1. I know you appreciate humor from all I've read. ~hugs~ It seems to have been underrated by many folks. Thanks for all the kind words and best wishes to you and yours!

  3. Go for it! I love that card!

  4. Whatever works, I say. Does it make it harder or easier to find cards when you're chained to a specific theme?

    1. Thanks! Honestly, cat themed cards are easy. Food may be tougher. :)

  5. happy anniversary to you both...

    # Card is great

  6. Too cute, what a perfect card. AND Happy Belated Anniversary to you. Hubby and I just celebrated our 47th 2 nights ago. No pickle cards though, lol.

  7. Oh yes, embrace this in all aspects of life!!! HAHA...write a cute short story about it maybe! Haha....I love that he just goes along with it all! Hoping the fur babes are doing well.

    1. Oh, thank you! The cats seem to have a new lease on life, I'm happy to report.

  8. He is a darling! That husband of yours!

    I too, have a great husband, of 60 years. :-)

    Gentle hugs,
