Seasoned Greetings


Merry Christmas from Russell the Red-Nose Writer & Connie the Green-Thumb Gardener


Greetings Friends & Neighbors,

We’ve been blessed to survive another year (you probably figured that out when you got this card). Some of you may have suspected for years that Russell had mental issues. Well, now it’s official—he’s retared.

They say, “Ignorance is bliss,” and you’ll never meet a guy any happier to have this affliction.

Rather than bore you with the trivial events that occurred in our lives in 2017, we’ve decided to share some of the things that didn’t happen.

  • We didn’t win the lottery (again)
  • Russell’s book didn’t make the NY Times Best Seller List
  • We didn’t secretly meet with Vladimir Putin
  • No one offered to make a movie about us
  • Neither of us aged a single day (wishful thinking)

Yet despite all these failures and shortcomings, we feel happy and blessed. The Lord has been good to us. Praise God.

It’s our sincere wish that each of you have Joyous Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, and Blessed New Year.

  1. Dear Rusty Red Nose and the Long-Suffering Connie,

    Seasons greetings to you. Hey, what a coincidence! None of my books made the NY Times Best Seller list. You two are a blessing to me.

  2. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. 🙂
    May the Lord continue to bless you with light and love in 2018,
    (Just think: the world as we know it didn’t cease to exist at Y2K after all!)

  3. Thank you Russell for the card and your non-news. Hopefully next year you’ll get to the best seller list and the movie will be made. It’s a good job neither of you aged a day this year, as with all that going on, 2018 is going to be a busy one for you! Merry Christmas. 🙂

    • I thought after we went to Hollywood and made a commercial for AARP a couple of years ago, we’d have heard from George Lucas by now. Tom Cruise has been itching to play me and Natalie Portman would be ravishing in the role of Connie. Now, all we need is a black lab to play Buster.

  4. The world would be a much duller place without you two in it.
    Have a most Merry Christmas and may 2018 be as fabulous as it can be – maybe you’ll make the list! xoxo

This is the blog of a woman who is seriously on the edge and I mean right ON the edge…no, not there… just a little bit further… further than that…no, further still…just a tiny bit more… just move slightly to the right a little…no, that’s too much…just move a tad to the left…that’s right, just there…now you’ve moved too far to the left… Damn, what part of the ‘on the edge’ do you not understand? Oh, and her matricidal boy genius, come devil spawn.

Sharing sarcasm, snark, and satire with the world...

Or the three people I guilted into reading this blog, whatever.
