The Christmas Card That Never Was

You know what you do when you receive a Christmas Card, you tape it to the frame of a door way in your living room to show off and brag to people about how many friends and relatives actually thought about you on this Christmas Season.

What about the Christmas Card That Never Was?
Well you tape that one also!
The Christmas Card That Never Was? Is Johnny G. Losing it?

Let me explain.....
Neither rain nor sleet nor snow the mail always gets thru weather you get it or not.........

Got a Christmas card from my Aunt yesterday, well sort of, I got the front part of the envelope in a plastic bag with apologies and condolences from the Post Master that the rest of it was destroyed in the sorter at the Post Office.
So there you have it the Christmas Card that never was and it is hanging with the rest of the beautiful cards that were.

And remember......
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
And as always, thanks for listening!

That's funny you hung it up!

I've received mail like that as well. Mine had a big foot print on it lol and an apology.

It's not funny that your card was destroyed but it is funny they delivered the envelope to you. Silly post office.

Well, enjoy the christmas envelope.

I know you aren't in a festive spirit this year but I do wish you a peaceful Christmas and I hope the day isn't too difficult for you.

Well I am glad at least they apologized! I know this is not a good year for you, wishing you peace at Christmas.

Mine are taped all over the inside of the front door. I love looking at them. I've had a similar experience with the P.O. It's amazing with the amount of mail they handle that there are not more mishaps than there are. I sure hope auntie didn't stick a hundred dollar bill in that card for you. That would be an "oh crap" moment. Have a good day John...Merry Christmas, Linda in Washington where the dang snow is falling again.

I think it's a good idea - Just think the rest of the card is hanging in the sorter. Hoping this day and all that follow treat you well. Take care and Merry Christmas to you and yours,

Well at least this way you know she sent one and meant good wishes to you. I'm sweating it out about something I sent to my kids and they haven't recieved yet. Take it easy, I know its hard for you.
