Margie Without Edna

Hi everybody! Margie here. It's New Year's Day and I'm here alone. My sister, Edna, has deserted me. Yes, she doesn't care about me. She didn't even tell me where she was going!

It's a good thing I have all of you. Well, Mr. Hawkins did stop by with some good news. He says we may have our power back soon. That sweet wife of his sent me some cookies too.

Thinking back on 2007 has made me think of the new year ahead so I wanted to send out some wishes for 2008. Keep in mind that I never make resolutions. I don't resolve to do anything;I just do it.

Here are my wishes:

1. Edna, stay wherever you are and don't come back.

2. Stanley and Mimi: I wish you a big wedding. Invite me.

3. I wish that all of you will have the opportunity to visit Jericho in 2008. Come see my nice basement. Ladies, come for tea.

4. I wish much continued success for my friend, Amy Vernon. She's too nice to tell the truth about Edna so she writes about TV shows instead.

5. Mr. Rich Becker: I hope you get to visit my home in 2008. You seem to be a very nice man.

6. To Ms. Briarpatch: I wish you luck finding that towel you wanted.

7. For all Jericho fans all over the world: I wish you all the Nuts you can hold.

8. I would also like to wish a very happy, successful year to the person who made all this possible: Nina Tassler.

9. Cousin T.: I hope you strike it rich so you can retire. By the way, can you come look at my porch? It sags.

10. Happy New Year to all of you and your families and friends and pets. I had a dog once but she looked at Edna and ran off.

Happy New Year!!!

I will bring my toolbox round when I can Miss Margie.

You sweet boy! Aunt Margie will have the Special Tea waiting.

Aww, Margie, you know that I love both you and Edna equally. And don't worry, we all know that you love Edna, too. After all, without her, what would you have to complain about? Nuclear annihilation? So passé.

Jericho Returns said...

Well, Amy, I suppose you do have a point. Without Fruit Loop Edna there'd sure be a lot less to talk about. Me? Complain? Never.

We sure love you, dear, and we want you to come visit when our power is restored. I'll cook you a nice meal.

I wish I could find that towel. I would auction it off and make a mint!

Can I come by for coffee? :)

Certainly bertas. You are welcome anytime.
