Thank you

I received a thank you card in the mail today from Norm and Vicky. It made me laugh because it was written in the first person. “I am sure we will…”, “I can’t wait…”, etc. I never realized Norm has such girlish handwriting.

All of the other mail I received was junk, except for something from Ameriprise, telling me that the company that handles my disability insurance has merged with another company. Earth-shattering news, clearly.
