Inspired by Tarzan?

The telephone is a clue to the age of this Valentine.
This one would be re-written today so that the intension was clear.

What I find most intereting in Valentine's Day cards is the little details that define the time period of the Valentine; the phone, the iron, a turntable and even clothing. Consider reviewing your children's Valentine's Day cards and see if you notice a cell phone, iPod, laptop or iPad or comments concerning the internet. Years from now those items will define our Valentine's Day cards to us.
