Wrong Number

I have a large collection of "Wrong Number" emails in my Gmail account. This is what happens when you use a VERY popular Bible verse as your email addy. At least they are generally clean emails....

Hi  Ilo[...] :  Thanks for the message. Yeah.  I really thought you and Bob had just decided to not be friends with me for some odd reason.  I am glad you wrotie me and said HI.  I appreciate that becasue I have always liked you, and of course Bob too.  I thought I was Bob's sponsor but I guess he changed his mind and maybe got a new one.  I would love to go to coffee with you again. I always love seeing you and chatting and just sharing a moment of our lives together.   Call me or I'll call you. 

I've been really busy this summer taking care of my grandkids.  My son is divorcing his wife so she is no longer in the home so I need to be there to help out while my son works.  It's really kept me very busy, but I enjoy and love my grandkids dearly so its' all good.

I look forward to seeing you soon.  Love Rich

Hi  Ilo[...]:  It was so nice seeing you today, and even nicer talking to you.  I really have missed you. It was such a lovely time we shared there together.  It just passed to darn quickly for me.  Im glad things are going so well, and glad you are happy.  But I do detect a sort of sadness in you...sorry if I share that....You are so beautiful,  Ilo[...]. Inside and out, and Bob is a lucky lucky man, and you are too.  I am just so blessed to be counted as one of your friends.  I just hope we don't wait so  long this time before we see each other again.   I know you are busy: so  I understand that my feelings most likely not be realized at this time.  But give me a jingle when you do have time again.  Maybe we can do something else next time....Take care   Rich 

ps  hope you are always happy my dear

Thanks Rich, was good to see you to the time went really fast  you are a very nice man and easy to talk to. I will keep in touch have a great summer and enjoy your family I know you love them so much your  face light up when you talking about them. 

Take care my friend,  Ilo[...].

In this case, they are clean, and kind of sad. I get mail between these people all the time, and I have replied to all of them more than once letting them know that whoever they are trying to include in the conversation, it's not getting to them. But I enjoy reading their little slices of life, even as I reply about every two to three months to let them know it's still me, not Whoever, they're writing to.

Is it just my imagination, or is Rich trying to move in on Bob's (presumably) wife?

1 thing(s) to say:

Whoa. Compared to yours, mine is at least straight-forward; the ongoing-ness is overwhelming. I agree, too, that Rich & Bob's SO are close. Perhaps too close.
