A reply and two thank-yous…

…one of which included an apology along with the thanks. That one was a notecard; on the envelope, a rather smug snowman was surrounded by falling snowflakes, one of which taunted, “Hah! Quail at our numbers, puny humans!” Looking rather grim and concerned as he eyed that flake from his stamp, Gregory Peck/Atticus Finch called, “Jem, you and Scout get inside right now!” The address of the postcard thanking a friend for sending me The Signature of All Things to read was bordered by a climbing flowering vine of some imaginary species. The reply postcard was, alas, unembellished.
