Evalene Pulati of Santa Ana, president of the National Valentines Collectors' Assn., says many of the 900 million or so valentines delivered across the country Friday will show that romantic cards are on the rebound, sort of. "Of course, we see valentines that ask, 'Your House or Mine?,' or, 'Can I Park My Shoes Under Your Bed,' " she said, "but many of the cards being sold this year suggest a move toward romanticism, although this definitely is not a romantic era we're living in."

At a card shop in the Mission Viejo Mall, two women in their 20s stand giggling before a display of valentines. "I keep picking up all of the sex ones. These are the perverted cards down here," the blonde says. "Do you think I should give this one to Ted?" She flips open a card that reads, "The first time ever I saw your face, I thought, 'Oh well, maybe he's got a nice personality.' " Those playing Cupid this Valentine's Day should choose their cards with care.

One of the most pleasant ways for a collector to learn about what to collect is to join a club that brings together others who share the same passion. It seems there's a club for almost every collectible. Some are national or international, and members keep in touch through magazines, newsletters and periodic conventions. Others are local groups that sponsor potluck suppers, picnics and meetings to share information and swap items that might range from miniature bottles to buttons.

When a loved friend or relative dies and has named you executor or executrix of the estate, bereavement is coupled with the responsibility of sorting out and distributing a lifetime's accumulation of property to the heirs. Once you've gotten past the time of grief, it will be necessary to face the task of carrying out the deceased's wishes.

Blest be the day when first I saw My Mary in the Grove; I gaz'd with reverential awe, My bosom glowed with love. --A valentine sent from a man to his sweetheart in Surrey, England, circa 1820 You bought the License and the Ring And then his praise began to sing, But when he saw you, lightly drest, He gladly took the first train West.
