A friend of mine has just sent me this - and although I had seen it before, I thought I would share it with you in case you hadn't read it!

Warning - Careful How You Type The Address

A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.  They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.

Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules.  So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day.  The husband checked into the hotel.  There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife.  However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral.  He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack.

The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends.  After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.

The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I've Arrived
Date: October 16, 2007

I know you're surprised to hear from me.  They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones.

I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

Looking forward to seeing you then!  Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. Sure is darned hot down here!

Well it is certainly "breezy" here at present - we have had it worse this evening.

They never mention I O M on reports - do you suffer. or is there a high wall round the edge of the island!!

We have high winds so often over the winter that they don't do an awful lot of harm unless they are at least a ten or eleven. As my grandfather once explained this is because no weak tree or roof tile has the chance of hanging around in a weakened condition for years so there is never a time when they all go at once.

Last night though we only caught the edge of it - it was only about an eight overnight, and was calm by mid morning, so no damage apart from a few small bits of branch on the roads.

The high tide at lunch time came over the harbour walls in a couple of places, but no damage done - no excitement at all really!

Yes - like Bude ... I will admit it has been windy this evening, but get used to a "breeze" most of the time - I presumed you were the same

great icon, btw
