Hogwash

Hi!
Nothing much goin' on here.
My family is fine. Hope yours is too.
I was just thinking of you and wanted to drop you a line.
Email when you can.

There!
I timed that note above. It took me 45 seconds to write it, and I'm no typist.

I got another one today......
One of those notes that begins, "Why I send Forwards".
I bet you've gotten this note too........
Some lame note about thinking about you and not having time to write.

My note took 45 seconds, and I would much prefer receiving it than some crappy lie about forwarding junk to me because the sender was thinking of me and didn't have time to write!
If you don't have the 45 seconds it takes to tell me all is well but there is nothing to say, do me a favor?

When you think about filling my mailbox with someone else's stupid thoughts......
JUST SAY NO!


(Okay, I feel better now!)

OK, so if I forward something because it made me laugh out loud, or made me think along a different line than usual, and i want to share the feeling, is that a good thing, or a bad thing? Is it necessary to send a personal note with said forwards? Can anyone spell curmudgeon?

Lucky you. I only get them because im part of the mail group on the family website. At least you're thought about.

Hey greybeard. Just logged on to read through what ive missed and say hello. I go up for my instrument rating tonight, and have my commercial scheduled for early next month when the DPE gets back from vacation.

Later.

P.S. Took me 63 seconds. I used to teach typing, so that sort of depresses me.

Wow Rubberduck, you've come a ways since I last heard from you! Good for you!
For those of you that don't know, the instrument rating is one of the tough ratings to get, so RD probably has butterflies in his stomach getting prepared for the checkride.
Good luck pal, and come back and fill us in on your results!
