I just received this email and wanted to share it with you along with my response.

Dear Friend,

This message might meet you in utmost surprise, however,it's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am a banker by profession from Burkina faso in west Africa and currently holding the post of Manager Auditing and Accounting unit of the bank.

I have the opportunity of transfering the left over funds ($10,500,000.00) of one of my bank clients who died along with his entire family in Central England in the year 2003 and since his death occured, no body have show up as his next of kin for the claim because the account is untraceable.

If you agree to my business proposal.further details of the transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as i receive your return mail. have a great day.

Thanks Yours,
Akeem Hadi

Dear Akeem,

You have no idea just how surprised I am my friend. Just the other day I tried to friend you on FaceBook but have not received your reply yet; I hope everything is well with you. I did hear about your recent promotion to MAA. That is really exciting news! Have you thought about a Linked In account? Networking is a great way to meet others in your field.

$10.5M is certainly not something I would say no to under ordinary circumstances. But I must tell you that I just last week received a letter from Ed stating that I may have already won $20M. How exciting is that?

This could not have come at a better time. The girlfriend and I were really starting to feel the pressure of this horrible economy. I guess it’s hardest on our dog. We really love her. That is why we are only eating her one leg at a time. Her name is Ilean by the way.

I am really sorry to hear about the family who died in central England. England is such a small country. I didn’t know they had sectioned it out. Central England, is that near London? I have heard of London. I was glad to hear that no bodies showed up at the bank. That would just be uncomfortable, right? Why would bodies need the money anyway?

One last thing, maybe y’all should not make these accounts untraceable. I am sure the next of kin could really use this money. It would seem much more likely for you to find the next of kin, knowing your clients name and address and such. I don’t know, just a thought. You found me after all, way over here in Central Florida. LOL ok, now I get it! We divided Florida up too!

Oh well, my dear friend, I will let you know if this whole $20M clearing house sweepstakes thing doesn’t work out for us and I really hope you are able to get rid of all that extra money over there in Africa.

Truly yours too,



And the money just keeps rolling in. I do plan to share with all my blogging friends. I also expect my follower count to really start climbing any day now.

Minor Surgery

Darby the Golden Retriever

Brace yourselves my dear readers. I am about to let you in on a little piece of personal information about an upcoming surgery I am considering. Nothing to make a fuss about I assure you. It’s just something I have been meaning to do for some time now. Before you folks start pulling out your prayer list, incense, and tea leaves, just hear me out.

I am seriously considering having the button taken out of my ars! What is it with children, dogs, and telephones? I no sooner sit down in my nice leather theater seat in front of the TV and BAM, just like clock work Darby the Golden Retriever wanders over and stands there looking at me. You people must know what I am talking about. If you ever had any of these three things I know you know what I am talking about. You sit down and like magic the button gets mashed and there they come, holler, bark, or ring!

Darby has tuned in on whatever frequency my particular butt button is tuned to. Like I said, he comes over then stares at me. I know it’s coming so I just stare back and eventually say WHAT?. This just encourages him and so he growls or grunts whatever is considered just below a growl. I turn away and this triggers more conversation. Bark! Ughhh. Bark, he says, you know I have to poop! Let me out. Ughhhh, Darby, I just let you out five minutes ago! Yea, he says, but you didn’t mash the button so I couldn’t; now I can! LET ME OUT!

I am having it taken out. I am having whatever scan there is to find this cursed button and having it removed. So, pray if you must, burn the little smelly sticks if you must, read the leaves if you must, but don’t worry, I am sure it will be fine.


But Darby, I am gonna miss “So you think you can dance”! Ugh!
