How Writing Sounds if Your "E" Won't Print

Written by Ralph E. Shaffer

Hi, D:

I usually start with your full you-know-what or your funny alias, but I can't today, as a symbol in our ABCs following "d" and prior to "f" won't print on my laptop, so I'm avoiding any word with that symbol in it. And you must know that it's our most-commonly found symbol in our vocabulary.

What's up today? A ground motion struck LA a short bit ago, but without collapsing any buildings. Just minor shaking. A 6.4! Calls still coming in to radio stations.

Today is our Fourth of July holiday, and traffic is light. Most motorists got out of town prior to Thursday.

I think I'll quit now, as it's obvious I don't know what to say to you. As soon as that laptop complication is fixt, I'll contact you again.
