Tree mail

Do you get emails like this?
Without wanting to seem like a wizened cynic I find them curious. Not the syrupy sentiments, but the hope that something miraculous will happen because I might forward it on to you. The real miracle was that it made it past my anti spam filter and that the original image size - huge - didn't get bounced by my webhost.

Subject: FW: SUSPECT: FW: Amazing picture!

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.
Don't be afraid that your life will end,
be afraid that it will never begin.

Send this to all of your friends in the next 5 minutes
and a miracle will happen tonight

Well, anyway - I haven't clogged up anyone's inbox, but is the voucher for a miracle still good? I could use one.

The irony is that the tree-guy who was supposed to come an remove some trunks that threaten our fence with collapse didn't show up this morning. So I waited around. And waited...only a tree-mail to show for it.
