Thanks... I think?

I received the loveliest card in yesterday's mail! Just take a look

Isn't it a great photo? It was a printed matte image, and imagine my delight to turn it over and find a photo credit by your favorite photographer and mine, the mistah uncle of schlekahs himself!

Once I dabbed the virtual sea spray from my eyeballs, I took a gander inside to see what the card was all about:

I cracked up reading it, and when my girl asked what was so funny I handed it to her. She moved her lips this way and that, furrowed her brow a little, then handed it back and asked:  "Is that spanish?"  I cracked up some more, sharing a joke about my sister's crazy handwriting. She wasn't kidding, though.

I don't really see the problem. I mean, I know it's wack but I know Ellie enough to figure out what she is saying, and it's really funny! Can you read it?

Of course I can read it! It's clear as day!

I just read this out loud to the mistah uncle of schlekahs himself and said to him, "I get no respect. My handwriting is perfectly fine." He replied, "If you like illegibility, it is."


Well, my friend Kelly can always read my writing, and you can infer it, Jacquie, so I guess I'm ahead of the game.

Love this! What a funny surprise!

It was all clear to me...but, then again, I have a sister who once sent a letter from her trip to France that my roommates thought was written in french! Alas, it was just her handwriting :)

I got it all, well except for the "tubby drank butter shine" part on the top side.

To paraphrase, you are the buddha and lLOVE your tubby butter dish. And Jacquie. She rocks!


Props to Mistah!
