A Stodghill Says So blog:

A Cruel and Vicious Attack MonkeySaysSO

In one of his more lucid moments my brother-in-law Mike Taylor, whose brain was fried by too many years spent under the Florida sun, sent me the cruel and uncalled-for photo above.
Far be it from me to criticize someone, but Mike's idea of a gourmet meal is biscuits and gravy at a Golden Corral. He always carries a camera so he can catch people unaware and take a candid shot when their mouth is agape or something is hanging from one nostril.
How it ever came about baffles me, but Mike has a lovely wife named Annette who comes from close by here in the Western Reserve Territory. He also has a nice sister and a fine brother so what happened with Mike is just one more puzzle.
We met under strange circumstances. He and Jackie were in a car and she was telling him about the wonderful man she had met. I happened to be walking from one bar to another at the time so she said, "There he is now."
I have always made a point of emphasizing the fact that I was walking, not staggering as Mike likes to claim. It happens that I just have a poor sense of balance.
Because of his relationship with Jackie I have decided against taking legal action over this defaming picture. The time will come, though, when a suitable response leaps to mind.

To those of us with an untrained eye, the likeness is remarkable. He probably types faster than you, so perhaps it's the monkey who should be offended.

Jimmy Durante said, "You ain't see nothin' yet."

I'm working on the picture.

I agree with Don, the likeness is remarkable. Don's enhanced image even more so. Now, if you could just wipe off the smile from the monkey's face, it would be a perfect likeness.

Marie, that's exactly like Dick's version of a smile. I've tried to teach him how to lift those lips, but it's hopeless.

Dear E. Don,
I admire the savvy it takes to make a picture like that. My dear daughter and her husband consider that my son is "pussy whipped" by my dear daughter in law. They took a picture of them sitting side by side at the beach, put her head on his and left hers on her. The result is quite facinating. It takes a moment to decide who has whose body. I laughed. The picture adorns both their refrigerator doors. The refrigerator door is an aspiration for family photograpers everywhere.

Love,
Betty

In all of this I have yet to hear one word of the sympathy I was anticipating.

Dear Dick,
You see my Sara's face. She is as astounded as you.

If you would like, she could bite them on the little toe.

Love,
Betty

Dear Shelagh,
Sara unties shoe laces and controls herself. She is so protective of David because he let her ride on the tractor. She loved that. No other dog she has ever known got to ride on a big tractor. I have changed my avatar to show you all her lovely smile on that day.

Love,
Betty
