Friday’s Letters – November 14, 2014

Friday's Letters

Dear Mr. Pea - You have rendered me speechless.  We sent our wedding bands and my solitaire engagement ring to the jeweler to be sized.  The solitaire came back with extra sparkle.  I’m silly giddy in love with you!

Dear Princess Grace – Welcome back to my world!! I’ve missed you!

Dear Nikon – You really need to have local repair facilities.  That being said, thank you for the amazing customer service – it was easy to get my lens packed up and sent to you, the estimate came back promptly and the cost was reasonable.  Now hurry up and fix it so I can take pictures again!

Patience is a Virtue.  Keep the Faith.
