Niagara Gazette — Everyone replied, but differently:
Ohio Gal said she’d forgive us this one time but would never, ever, e-mail Christmas cards.
Arizona Gal said she stopped mailing actual cards years ago, so that she could send more.
Forgive us old foofs, but we’re with our Buckeye Buddy. And don’t tell us you’re going to skip sending cards and send the money to charity. We’ll do our own good works, thank you.
Every card has a note, 20 to 50 words (we guess, we don’t really count) sharing a memory and something we did during the course of the year that reminded us of the recipient. In fact, Doug’s catch-up email after the premature dispatch brought something to our attention:
They were all from different fields and different phases of our lives. They were all strangers to each other, linked only through us.
Have no idea what that means, but it was pretty rewarding.
So come visit. Bring stamps and a fork, it’s Polly’s birthday. Keep in touch.Polly and Douge-mail (it's OK, really) email@example.com
