(My “Christmas” card)
Dear Family and Friends,
While I find handwritten notes more personal, the chances of you being able to read my writing are slim. Years of dependence on typing has denigrated my already poor penmanship. In fact, if you are reading this, it is a Christmas miracle that the USPS was able to decipher my writing on the envelope.
I did change the font of this letter to “Freestyle Script” to give it a more handwritten feel. “Times New Roman” is such an impersonal font (Not applicable here). If this is being read by an unintended recipient, I am sorry this envelope was devoid the cash you were hoping were inside. To my family and friends, I am also sorry this did not have the cash you were hoping for inside. I’ll pay you back when my income tax return comes in. In place of cash, I am hoping the enclosed card will be the gift that keeps on giving for future generations, or not take up too much room in your trash can. As the card indicates, this past September I was fortunate to visit Yellowstone National Park. The picture of Artists Point at the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone was taken right before a rainstorm came through on September 13th about 6 in the evening. While I was trying to avoid being struck by lightning, being rained on at Yellowstone, was an awesome experience I won’t soon forget!
On the same trip, I also visited Grand Teton National Park, Devils Tower, Mount Rushmore, and Denver, CO. If this letter hasn’t put you to sleep already and you would like to read more ramblings and see more pictures along with some videos, just visit: randallmurphy.com/Yellowstone
For a limited time, I am offering this for the low price of…. nothing. You get the friends and family discount. Truth be told the whole internet gets the same rate, but I didn’t send the rest of the internet a personal invitation.
Besides going on vacation, I really don’t have much to report on about myself. I still work for the man for the time being, at least this was the case at the time of this letter. If you see a hobo panhandling for change that looks a lot like me. You’ll know things must have taken a turn for the worse.
If I don’t have a chance to tell you in person, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving, have a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year! I’m thankful for all of you!
All my best,
Randall Lee Murphy
