If you are
old young enough to remember the Perry Como Show * from years ago, there was a segment of the show with the intro:
Letters, we get letters, We get stacks an' stacks of letters . . .
Dear Perry, would you be so kind, to fill a request, And sing the song I like best ?
OK, we won’t sing for you, believe me it would not be melodious. But we do want to THANK folks for the stack of cards, photos and letters we received at Christmas.
The Christmas letters were enclosed in cards. These samples below are purposely out of focus to protect the
guilty, whoops senders). One sender described their dog’s medical problems this past year — in great detail too, more then we needed (or wanted) to know. Needless to say, it was a very unusual holiday message. Other letters were more traditional in describing the accomplishments of family members over the past 12 months.
Mostly we got cards from family, friends, and many fellow bloggers. Some were in the form of a photo card . . .
Some featured family photos. Others included holiday favorites — Santa, trains and penguins, snowmen . . .
The cards are all displayed in our living room, where we enjoy looking at them daily. THANKS to everyone who took the time to write and send us a holiday greeting or photo. Grenville and I appreciated and enjoyed your holiday wishes and send our best to ALL of you in return.
Happy New Year !
