For Now. Sorry I forgot - birthday

We were recently reminded of a tale of a man who forgot the birthday of his girlfriend.

We were inspired to (quickly) come up with these "For Now" TM variations:

"I'm sorry, I know,
I forgot your birthday.

I'd just like to say thank you
for forgiving me For Now"

Bushes in Bushes

Donald Trump got in then... We were reminded of a greeting card we sold some years ago. We found a few down the back of the sofa and this is it...

Inside: "When I was a boy I was told that
anybody could become president.
Now I'm beggining to believe it"


Clarence Darrow - 1857 - 1938

18cm x 13cm - Cello wrapped - White envelope

I Met My Wife In Paris

Cool Cards Exclusive Design. Printed to same high standard as our Jesus & Mo cards, say hello to Paris. We'll soon have an 'insert name here' card which won't say Paris, but with any place name or words of your choice.

Is it sexist of us that we don't also have an "I met my husband in Paris" card?

Postie of the Month - ?Year


Talk about going the extra mile..!

A dedicated postmaster embarked on a 300-mile journey to hand-deliver a passport on time.
David Shepherd, 26, of Stratton, Cornwall, drove 50 miles and took four trains after realising he had forgotten to get it in the post.
The passport had to get to customer Hugh Munro in Rye, Sussex, by 09:00 BST the following day so that his planned visit to Amsterdam could go ahead.
Mr Shepherd said his instinct was to "keep the customer happy".

Mr Munro was heading to the Dutch capital for a charity board meeting after stopping off at his sister's house in Rye.
Mr Shepherd, who has been postmaster at Stratton Store for 11 months, said: "I knew it was vital he had it.

"His neighbour brought it in. But it wasn't given to the postman at collection time, so I finished work at 7pm and drove to Exeter to catch the 1am train to London."
Mr Shepherd drove 50 miles to Exeter; caught the train to London Paddington; took the Tube to St Pancras; a further train to Ashford, Kent; and a final train to Rye.
He had just 15 minutes to deliver the passport before catching the train straight back, a journey which cost him more than £150.
