Have a nice day! and don’t let your shades fall off your nose! (Chinese proverb)
Merry Christmas, love, Steve
At 18h59, Catherine Fontonnier called you, she wanted to know if the fete Noel is still on. You must call her this evening.
Nadine, 220 – ton choufleur
At Nora’s, having tea. – E
At Elaine’s – having SEX! – Alan
Desole a propos de mon attitude envers ta mere. Autrement, il neige. Chic, alors!
The girl who is above you, 311, has just said that you are too noisy, too much.
Then you must sleep more than ever…
How are you choucroute? Did you sleep, drink, eat well during your trip to Paris? See you, Baby Love! – Nadine
From Marilyn: (picture of cows, ice-skating) There’s something about the holidays that brings steers to my ice. Merry Christmas!
P.S. – Wee Fish Ewe A Mare Egrets Moose Panda Hippo Gnu Deer!!! (We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!) Fer sure!!!
From Alan (former boyfriend): (Santa and his elves – with parenthetical comments)
At Christmas, Happiness is…
-Living it up without gaining weight, (not a chance!)
-Getting the cards out without being late… (I hope this one’s on time!)
-Finding the presents you have on your list, (all I need is money)
-Hearing from friends you really have missed…
-Trimming the tree when all the bulbs light,
-Wrapping the gifts when the ribbons tie right…
-Folks dropping by when you’re not “up to here” (I’m always “up to here”)
-Toasting good friends with a cup of good cheer (Sounds like fun. Drink some real French wine for me!)
But one of the happiest things to do is sending warm wishes to wonderful YOU!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! – Alan
From Pablo: (picture of little girl feeding the birds in the snow):
For the sweet things you say, and the kind deeds you do…
For all that and more, May God bless you!
Merry, Merry Christmas!
To Someone Special:
With love to a friend in a special time of the year; wishing you a wonderful Christmas and a happy 364 days. I’m sure the presence of your mother is going to be the best Christmas present you can receive. Claudine, I will be thinking of you.
From Dad: (Xeroxed copy of picture of Muffin, our Brittany Spaniel):
Merry Christmas. Just a quick note – Be careful of the pickpockets in Paris if you’re there on New Year’s Eve.
Would have sent money but didn’t have any – am going to ship yo a box of some other stuff this week. Let me know if you need anything for gifts – I can get K-Paul cookbooks, Steen’s cane syrup, etc.
I love you,
From (Barbara): (Ziggy greeting card, with Ziggy holding out a hand to catch something falling from the sky – it’s bird poop!): I think we’re going to have a white Christmas this year, because I just caught the first snowflake!)
– At least I hope it’s snow… Merry Christmas!
Actually, here it is – five days before Christmas, and I’ll probably be able to go over to the club and get a tan in this 70 degree weather!
Postcard from (Nadine): (Boardwalk at Bognor Regis, Sussex, England):
Hello you my choucroute!
How are you? As far as I am concerned, I am fine. All my best wishes for the New Year. I hope you had a good time with your mother. Here the weather is cold, but the sun shines all the time. The journey has been long and difficult with the storm. I will come back the 31st December. Well, I will see you later. Bye, my dearest choucroute. I am looking forward to your answer!
