A drifting and blurry image delivered by pigeon.

Later it was electronic.

Then, the poetry started and couldn’t be stopped.

We intend to link your thoughts and my comments upon them, to a blockchain, just to prove authenticity. Maybe! What say you?

The little numbers were spinning.

It proved we had plenty of paid electricity left to use, or we were in a bingo hall, or a backup from computer to hard drive was in progress, or we were traveling fast on an open road and mileage was accumulating.

There were other possibilities, of course, but we won’t continue to list more.

Down at the old garage, two friends were building an electric rocket, a new toaster oven that was powered by thought and a musical instrument that read thoughts.

We must live in an active place. Full of activity, full of action.

It makes such a difference. Sending a greeting a day or two early or late – I dislike it when I do so (in error of course).

But sometimes calendars “go wrong”. The old paper type were reliable, after all what event would transpose December one year to appear as January the next? Well, “at least it would be human error”.

Having a nice day?

Not the most original or funny of questions.

It is recommended by the committee that you ask questions like “do you like wearing mismatched socks?” or “is the momentum created in the economy by a .25% interest rate drop a good thing on a Monday?”.

Other original questions such as ” do you need an oil change?” are not the sort of inspired boost to communication we are steering towards.

Committees can be unreliable in contributing to progress, but create a sense of importance for their members.
