A message from my first employer:
Through Marisu’s thingamajig, Lita and I thank you all for your greetings on our 63rd wedding anniversary. I would have done this myself, on my own account, but sad to say, my level of IT competence leaves much to be desired. Anyway, it was nice to see and read messages from dearly loved friends from the days when friends were friends. It was heart-warming to know that the spirit of the Daily Express lives, and that you are all doing the best you can on what you do best. Again, many thanks, and as Eugene O’Neill says, same time next year.
