George, this is your Iowa Flower Lady and my apprentice. I realize this is a little early George, but these beautiful flowers have already been frosted once and they are calling for frost here shortly. They would lose all their radiant beauty after that. I realize they aren't much, but it is the thought that counts. Your surgery is not scheduled for a little while yet but I wanted to be sure and get these to you as quickly as possible so they wouldn't look any worse. So George, F. T. D. F., D (Flowers To Die For, Darling) wishes you a very complete and successful surgery. Nancy and I and Sarah, that's the dog who's cute little butt you noticed in a previous avatar, want to wish you a successful surgery and a speedy recovery. We have included a card and special message, and some gifts George. I couldn't get Sarah in the picture, she was killing something somewhere else in the yard, but I did get her to pee on the card for you. My apprentice and wife Nancy wanted me to make sure you had something to do during your recovery George. We have purchased a first aid kit that you can use to resuture your wound if it falls apart. Saves a trip to the emergency ward. I am sending a 3,000 piece gig saw puzzle entitled "Giant Catfish swallows boat and 2 men". George, I took out one piece of this puzzle, put some peanut butter on it and gave it to Sarah like a dog cookie. Your job George, is to find out where that piece should go. Finally George, I have sent a one way ticket for your wife to go anywhere in the world she wants to, to get away from you if the need arises. George, in my avatar, if it comes up (I hope), it shows me drinking a beer in public. Not ethical I realize. It shows me smoking a cigarette. Illegal I know. It shows me with Nancy, my wife. Completely not moral to have a wife of the opposite gender I realize. And most importantly it shows a couple of people having a good time doing this. Absolutely not American with the threat of Global warming and Muslims killing us. Why should anybody have a good time. The card can be signed by folks as they wish. I am sure you will get many well wishes and wonderful gifts. And George, don't die I wouldn't be able to find anyone else to confide in when times get rough around here. Good luck George: Nancy, John and Sarah.
