Smart man.

I haven't seen a handwritten letter in years....my Mom (now passed) made a point of writing me an airmail every week since I evacuated...they're a lost art it seems.

Unless you're offering on behalf of your attractive female daughter currently travelling the UK I'll have to decline.

That`s no way to reject a guy. Sheesh, what about "I`m washing my hair" or something. You`ve hurt my feelings spanky, you need to put it right...

Spank. Lack of current partner should not stop you from writing a letter. Write it to a future partner a give it to them some day. When writing in long hand, a mind is forced to savor each word chosen as the hand can't put thoughts to paper that fast.

I don't feel sorrow for your lack of a partner as you have a great on line personality and don't seem in the least bit suicidal.

I thought about saying that but you've seen photos, you'd know it doesn't take me that long to wash my hair.

Of course not, I'm only suicidal when I'm WITH someone.

Poppop I realize that my thought process was better to not offer a gift or amall discount, rather than a chinese made knife.

The NRA knows their demographic and has to appeal to their need for free handouts.

It's all about marketing and money.
