In The Beginning…

A Red Ryder BB Gun with a Compass in the Stock & a Thing Which Tells Time.

Dear George,
  I did get your letter and understand the keenness with which you want a red Ryder BB gun with a magic compass in the stock which always points away from danger.  However, (and firstly), I’m on vacation.  Secondly, as I’ve explained to you before, I am not Santa Claus.

Wish You Were Here,

With apologies to Banjo Paterson.

Dear George,

  I’m deeply honored that you would think of me as godfather for your boy. I’m afraid, though, that if you’ll expect more than a fiver on birthdays and graduations, (and maybe not then), you might want to look somewhere else. Of course, it goes without saying that I can’t make it to the christening. I’m on vacation.

Don’t spare the rod,
