Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

You know who you are, and you are them that won’t go the extra mile..... to the post office.

OK OK OK  all you “electronic” Christmas card mailers. We all know you are making contributions to your favourite charities in lieu of the normal convention of mailing your Christmas Card Greetings, and we all now know that you really want to save the planet with all those old grumpy excuses, ....which just won’t wash in the Monk House. 

So let’s face it, some of you are just not prepared to go through all the pain of scribbling and licking, and paying for all those stamps. You know who you are, and you are them that won’t go the extra mile..... to the post office.

You people need an extra dose of “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “White Christmas” and “Bingo Crosby” and “Fred Clause” and “Scrooge” and “Tinsel Tinsel Little Star” and “Santa's Knobbly Knee” These “true movies” embody the “true” meaning of “true” Christmas:

Shame on your stingy excuses.

However, we the Monks, did suffer a terminal computer crash this year and we may have, once again, lost your snail mail address. We are therefore obliged to send you our heart felt Christmas Greetings, reluctantly by this convenient and cheap electronic e-mail.

No really, .....we did lose our address book and OK, we will make a donation

Merry Christmas

Leslie and Sara Monk

Violets are bluish
If it weren't for Christmas
We'd all be Jewish.
