Missed the Mail;
a her and him piece

Post carrier has come and gone
Just a little bit late today
I missed it big, nothing for you
May I e-mail my note of love

I will still love you when you're late
There's nothing witty I can say
Pining away, I miss you so
This is my e-mailed note with love

Note:  I'm not late a lot, at least for the important things.  Most of them.  I'm most infamous for being an hour late for Mrs. Jim's and my wedding.  That was unfortunate and not very much my fault.  It happened over forty years ago so I think the marriage took. (Read more about all that here)

She'll still love you if you're late with anything, if she loved you after being an hour late for the wedding. LOL
I love the photo, too, Jim.

Great pic. Mail times and latenesses have haunted my life so I doubly appreciate this little poem.

I think everyone has an interesting anecdote about their wedding that many will remember long after the celebrations with embarrassment. For some reason every wedding picture has me with a clenched fist; I think I was nervous!
I wonder whether young lovers print out their emails to each and tie them up with ribbon?

Great poem, Mr. Jim. I think Mrs. Jim must be wonderful, too!

Jim, I love your sense of humor! and I am glad you found Real Toads. I just discovered them a few weeks ago and I hope to participate again soon. An hour late for your own wedding? I thought only the brides were late! I will have to go read the story now!

Cool, I like the mailbox. That's ok, you had a good reason. I'm glad that you didn't get pulled over by the cops! 120 miles per hour is the normal speed here in Houston, TX.
