FREE greeting card contest!



From Marylin Warner:

Years ago, while I was teaching a greeting card-writing workshop, I wrote a Mother’s Day card. When I showed it to my mom, she laughed and thought it was great (but you know how moms are, so of course she’d say that.)

____________________Here it is:__________________________

(cover message)  100 people were asked this question.  What if you were stranded on a deserted island, wounded, with no food or shelter, no weapons and no communication devices?

Only one person can help you survive.  Which person will you choose?   a)  a hunter,   b) a doctor,    c) a farmer ,   d) a politician,   e) none of the above

Here was their unanimous answer…

(inside message)

d) none of the above

I want my mommie!
