ARE YOU OK DAY.September 15. Now here is an opportunity to revive an old acquaintance, or a faltering romance. or if you feel a trifle guilty having not communicated with some person who means more to you than just a yule tide friend, or a relative you send a birthday card when ever you remember.
Some people may have an aged spinster aunt or great uncle with no issue who may live in a three storey house in the city or has a lavish bungalow on five acres with a pool and with no kind friendly person to pass this burden on to. Opportunities abound to make friends and keep them, relatives can be great friends, I have many, only one is out of contention; he who we love dearly but battle to come to terms with his oddities(Kindly put).
After long unexplained absences it can become embarrassing to some people trying to reconnect. A long drawn out list of marital and medical excuses will not wash with most people. Be bold and tell them the truth that you have been a complete moron for not writing to my favourite friends but there are rarely days that you are not remembered please forgive (me-us).Try sending a gift card which can be redeemed at their local boozer; it is a dead cert to get you back on track.
So the message "Are you OK" is of prime importance, an Email or postal, telephone messages should be sent during waking hours repeat Waking hours, overseas callers beware.
To all my relatives and friends have a frolicking good week, but send those messages on Thursday 15 Sept. Back soon......... Vest.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
