Dear Homer;

Forgive me for not writing sooner but I thought you did not care to hear from me. How are you? Would like to be friends and hear from you soon and now.

Am in a hurry

Write soon

They appear to be two ships passing each other in the night blowing their fog horns yet unable to drop their respective anchors and really communicate with each other.
