Xmas is time for happy hollydays


Dear Hillary,

Just want to wish you a Happy New Year. I won’t get into the Merry Xmas versus Happy Holidays nonsense. December 25 has been Xmas Day all my long life, and I’m not going to say December 25 is Holiday day! What rubbish! Keep entertaining all us guys out here in the sand box. You give me a smile every week.



Dear Richo,

Your name is interesting. Is it some Australian slang for Richard, or is it because you are very rich? If your money is burning a hole in your pocket, then you can send the rest to me, attached to a bottle of Veuve Clicqot (Vintage preferably, but NV is fine). Happy New Year to you Petal.
