Emo Valentines Lola

Two hours isn't a lot of time and was just enough to de-bone a ham hock in preparation for dinner... ham and bean soup. One of the simpler meals in my cookbook but one that also gives me more time to color! :D And if you're wondering, yes, I did stay up all night to finish these. :D Of course, it didn't help that I started at 10:00pm to begin with!

Did you know? Valentine is a city in Cherry County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 2,820 at the 2000 census. Recently Valentine was nearly destroyed two years in a row due to a disastrous wind storm and then the "Big Rock Fire" the next year. However, in 2007, National Geographic Adventure magazine included Valentine in its list of the best ten wilderness towns and cities. This city also participates in an annual re-mailing program where thousands of pieces of mail flow into the local United States Post Office so that they can be re-mailed with a special Valentine's Day postmark and verse.
