The one card that just about gave me a heart attack

I love the blogosphere.  You've seen me write that at least 100 times before on the blog.

But when one of the brethren that you love so much tries to kill you, well that's another story.

We've all received the emails...."hey, I've got a card that I'm sure you'll want, please send me your address and I'll send it to you post haste."   Thankfully, I've been on the giving and receiving end of these types of emails.   It's part of what makes the blogosphere great.

Well, on Monday I was on the receiving end of one of those envelopes.  But I didn't know it when I first looked at the envelope.   Remember a few days ago when I mentioned that I would try and give you a little more of a glimpse into my life?  LOL...here goes.

You may or may not know that I am currently on my 2nd (and hopefully last) marriage.  To say that my relationship with my 1st wife after the divorce has been contentious would be generous. 

Well, when I see an envelope in today's mail from "Stackhouse, Attorney at Law", my heart immediately started to race.  Things ran wild in my head.

"What the $#^$ is this?"  I ask my wife.  The nerves are racing, the pulse is quickening, and I know that my blood pressure is increasing by the second (that's a story for another day...).

I open the envelope, only to find this inside...

even better, here's the back....

Corey from the Classon Ave blog sent me this great blank back 12-13 OPC retro card of Dion Phaneuf.  Corey, it is a great card, thank you very much!!!!!

So, when I should have been excited about this card coming to my doorstep, I became excited for quite the wrong reasons. 

Let's just say that it took me quite a while to calm down, not because of the card, but because of the envelope.

Yes, my wife and I laughed about this later, but man oh man!!! 

Any other lawyers out there in the blogosphere?  Any more envelopes like this and I might be imitating Fred Sanford...

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Too funny....great card though and a nice gift from Corey.

  2. So I should be sure not to use my company's penis growth pills letterhead when mailing to you? Roger that.

    1. 2 replies for you Jeff...First, now I know who is responsible for all the spam in my email. Second, I have no need for penis growth pills, naked women make it grow just fine...


      Well played.

      That Phaneuf is a beauty. Hope the best for him with his cast of truculent post-hitters in TO.
