Today's Letters: Dear Mr. Loerke, in honor of your absence this weekend I watched an episode of Boston Med, drank juice from the carton, and slept in your unmentionables. I maybe also might have used your razor to shave my legs. Maybe. Dear Houston, we have a problem. 105° forecast and a three minute drive to work = already have back sweat and swamp ass. Dear Tour de Goatneck, we have officially made amends. Thanks for the 3.5 hour ride with WMBM and for the thoughtful cyclist who grabbed my saddle and helped push me up one of your toughest hills. Dear Husband, my favorite part of the weekend? Tackling you here, because airport reunions are the shiz. Welcome home!

If you're a faithful reader of Today's Letters would you mind following this blog? I'd love to know who you are!

And don't forget to check out our AUGUST RECOMMENDATIONS!

Oh Em, I feel for you on the temperature. PS: Swamp Ass and I became mortal enemies whilst hiking up the Grand Canyon in a monsoon last week. I will punch him in the face for you next time I see him, which hopefully won't be soon, but inevitably will be. x's and o's to you and the mister!

I am a faithful reader of your letters. Never made it official until today.
I am a fifty something girl with a 36 year marriage and 4 grown children, 2 grand children. I love you guys! You make me laugh and cry. I love the way you tend to your relationships and your life. So sweet that I get to share a bit of your world.

You know...I was introduced to your blog from a friend...who said that your relationship reminded her of mine. I also often refer to my fiance as "Mr." and we are always writing little letters to each other. I checked you out and have been a faithful reader since :) And I just have to say how much I love that you used the term "SWAMP ASS" today! I know EXACTLY what that is :) It cracked me up---like so many of your posts do! Like Patrice said---you can make me laugh--and you can make me teary eyed :) That takes a special writer to accomplish BOTH ends of the spectrum! I love getting the daily letters--and I'm sure many other readers whole heartedly agree!!!

Scatterbox said...

I get your blog-a-dog through the RSS... I confess that I haven't quite figured out the skinny on the Google Friend Connect to know what it really is/does. Hmm...

Erica said...

I've followed your blog on Google reader for awhile now and I love it. It is definitely the ray of sunshine I need every day!
I am currently in PA school in South Dakota right now and start rotations in October. Some days get really long, and your blog always cheers me up-thank you for that.

Stephanie said...

Bluebell speaks to the depths of our hearts.

Kyrie Howard said...

unhealthy obesssion? perhaps.
true love? yes.

thanks for always brightening up my day. been following your blog for about 4 months now--your letters make me oh so pumped for married life. yay! thanks for being a unknowing cheerleader for me:)

Today's Letters said...

avis, i will trade you one walk up park st for more daggers and lead eights.

scatterbox, thanks for following the rss! you've been a long time friend of the bloggy.

erica pa-s III?, congrats on (almost) starting your rotations! i'm assuming you're at usd(?) ... are you still able to find time to do the things you love?

steph, forgot to mention we'll bring the magic shell. it will help with our brain freeze.

kyrie, true love indeed, esp after i saw your wedding video today. i'm smitten!

Allie said...

i love boston medical! i will be so sad when it's over.

Today's Letters said...

allie, that sweet dr. who made the aortic valve mistake on the bambino? heart him for his humility and integrity.

Han said...

I've followed but that means I get duplicate posts so now I need to go remove you from the RSS Reader lol.

I always think it's really funny how I'm built bigger than my hubby and yet I can fit in his unmentionables - obviously when he's not in them lol. Why is it unmentionables are so much more comfy that girl pants but the girl boxers that are made aren't as comfy as hubby unmentionables? (Why am i discussing this at 10 past 10 in the morning lol)
