It has been a long time since I have written some Friday Letters. I was reminded last week when Myra wrote some on her blog. I need to re-instate this because I have so much to say!
I don't talk to you as often as I used to. I am so sorry. I know that you know what I am thinking and what I am feeling. But I am sure you miss me talking with you. I promise to try to do better with this. As crazy as things have been this year I have needed you even more than ever. Can you see what I've been going through? Are you still holding my hand? Let's get together soon!
Dear Crazy Neighbor:
Yes, I saw you lurking behind my pampas grass the other day. With your little dog who was pooping on the lawn. I really don't care where he poops but I care when I step in it. Or Harley does and then comes into the house. If you need a doggy bag to pick it up I have several rolls in the house. And I don't even own a dog. Also, when I don't answer the door when you are knocking it probably means I'm either not home or I don't want company at the moment. Just saying. Now we need to schedule a time for a glass of ice tea. How's Saturday for you?
My sweet Harley:
Yes, I miss you! But it isn't the end of the world. I have had lots of time to read. And to cook all those things that you don't like. I haven't managed to make a crockpot of stew yet. But maybe tomorrow. I will be okay when you are gone (for good) Really, I will be. It's sweet that you worry. But I don't believe you at all.......Love, Granny
Hello PVT! I miss you, too! I can't wait for you to come home. You have turned into such a man. Well, a man-boy! Of course I will cook all your favorites. And as soon as you send me an address I will ship you a box of homemade cookies. Even if I never made you cookies when you lived at home. You can share them with your friends and pretend I was one of those kinds of grannys. And I'll get some Hamburger Helper stocked up too. Bawha! Love you boy!
Does no one want to do business anymore. I called you everyday for 3 straight days and never got a return call.(And we have used you for years). So I called your competitor. And they didn't call back either. Really??? Are plumbers that in demand? Or just not interested in making any money. Never mind. I have another one who is supposed to come Monday! I guess when you start charging $60+ an hour you can be selective of what jobs you want to take on. Really I don't think fixing a drip under the sink is that hard, is it?
