The Edwards Family Year-end Letter

We always enjoy reading “Year-end Letters” from families updating us on their activities.  I especially enjoy their humble nature.  For example, here are a couple of excerpts from a letter I received last year:

“Guess who just got accepted into Harvard?” 

“Jim got an enormous raise!  ‘Somebody’s’ shopping for a new Escalade!  Ha ha!” 

Well, I’ve decided to get in on the act.  So, without further ado, here is my inaugural Edwards Family Year-end Letter –

Greetings from the Edwards Family!

We have MUCH to be thankful for this year!  

Where to even begin?

We just enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Timmy was released early for good behavior, so he was able to join us!  (Those of you who attended his trial know he was railroaded.) 

Little Suzie got a lesson about corporate greed this year.  After only five days on the job at McDonald’s, Suzie was shocked to learn about an unreasonable rule.  Apparently, buried in the fine print of the McDonald’s employee handbook it says that being late for your shift three days in a row is cause for termination.  But Suzie’s a fighter! She’s already filed for unemployment.

The whole family (minus Timmy, of course) had a more exciting summer vacation than we’d planned.  Long story short, we checked into a cozy Motel 6 on the highway near Seaside.  (Well, it used to be a Motel 6.)  It turned out the place had a catastrophic lice infestation.  Jumpin’ Jehoshaphat!  We’ll remember that vacation!

Some of you met Chow Chow, the gentle pit bull we rescued from the pound last year. Well, Chow Chow was accused of biting another neighbor kid. He’s back at the pound awaiting his fate. Let’s just say, things aren’t looking too good for Chow Chow right now.

That about wraps it up!

The entire Edwards family wishes you and yours all the luck we’ve enjoyed as we begin the new year!

(Important Author’s Note: The real Edwards family does not have a son named Timmy.  We do not have a daughter named Suzie.  While we have stayed at the occasional Motel 6, knock on wood, no lice infestations yet. And we’ve never met a pit bull named Chow Chow!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
