Dear Jon,

We take our compliments & cherish them, especially unsolicited, surprise ones. 🤗

Once, when my dad was in the army, he was riding on a train somewhere & fell asleep. When he woke up, he heard a couple of girls talking about how handsome he was, thinking he was still asleep. The man is 86 years old, & my mom still hears about that time, on the train, when he was 19.
