(Borrowed from Melynda's Facebook page.)

My Christmas present to you--an old Christmas newsletter & a whole bunch of cartoons!!  Also, starting tomorrow, Christmas Day, & going until I get tired, I'll be publishing my posts 5 days a week, Monday through Friday!!  I never know what to get you, so I'm keeping the receipt in case you want to exchange it!!


Some explanation before you read this newsletter:

In 1979, when I wrote this, it was meant to be a joke just for Bud because I was tired of getting Xmas newsletters that said my husband was just elected God or my child just turned 6 & he's already Phi Beta Kappa. It's based on truth, as most humor is. Nameless was studying in Europe, Matt was at Northridge & worked for a sewer company. The “chunnel” (the tunnel across the English Channel) had not yet been built—I don’t know if it had even been planned at the time. Blake had just gotten his driver's license. General Motors was doing a lot better than they are now & we did buy a treadmill--also, we had a dog, Pepi. Bud liked it so much we sent it out with our cards. After receiving it, a friend told me that her husband asked her how I could brag like that. I liked her simple explanation: “It’s satire, stupid!”
