Gathering of the Classes Reunion in Bishopville, February 12, 13 and 14th NEXT MONTH!!!

Manifestations of a little known malady which strikes with little or no warning: High blood pressure, nightmares, sweaty palms, headaches....  the dogs are beginning to tuck their tails not to mention that the cats have disappeared months ago. There are no birds in the neighborhood. The squirrels have left the abundant crop of pecans and acorns in the yard for quieter parts. The mailman, who normally sticks one or two letters in the mail box each day has this strange quizzical look on his face as he hands me another wad of letters. The phone rings constantly....  the grand kids are not showing up as often... I haven't seen my wife in the last week or so..... arrrrrggghhhhrrrr......

Mentioned all this to my doc and he simply said... you have a classic case of  thosedreadedprocrastnatoritis!

You gotta love them! 
Keep those cards and letters coming
the money too!
