"It's the thought that counts!" no longer works


Not with friends like mine, one of whom just sent me the above Christmas card which continues on the inside with, ".. and you're getting clothes and a Bible for Christmas!" which anyone who's seen my pictures on facebook will agree is justified.

What got me into trouble was the note he'd written on the envelope:

He was, of course, referring to my blog about old German customs - click here - which the postman must've read as well because he's just been here and I'm minus a bottle of bubbly, the last one I had stored away for Christmas which will now be a very dry one.

Thanks for nothing, Frank, you bastard! Keep watching your back because I'll get even with you! ☺
