“Greetings Uncle Dave! It’s me. Bill. Bill the dog. And my mum and dad. We’re sailing this week. My ear is all better. Miss you a whole bunch, can’t wait to tell ya all about it. Mom and Dad say Hi! But just one more thing Uncle Dave - maybe you could frame this pic of me and put it next to Gus’ food bowl?” Sure Bill. That’s thoughtful of you. I think.
“And then tell Gus to go fuck himself.” .Oh Bill!
