    My darling:

    Love this strip, but why didn’t it show in my line up?

    Rick’s look of near-horror in panel 3 is priceless.

    I would also work in the phrase, “my passions flow like rivers to the sky” somewhere in the body of the text.

    I once signed a work email to a potential client with “Warm Regards.” Except I mistyped the “g” as a “t”. I never heard back from that guy…

    Greetings.
    This is a great unbiased opening to a letter. Unfortunately, the draft board has left a negative stain to its usage.
    Wishing you health and happiness.

    A nice bit of observation here. When use of the familiar is simply a formality to those we are not close to and not use it with those we do have familiarity with. Very nice contradiction well expressed.

    To whom it may concern,

    Great toon today, Scott. I loved the third panel.

    XXXOOO

    For many many years I’ve used “Whomever Cares” because I thought “Dear” was a bit much.
