Another Extraordinary Correspondence of Gladys and Furong

I wrote the other day about the Extraordinary Correspondence of Griffin and Sabine. I told you how beautiful the writing was. Then I posted this (click here). So in the spirit of Griffin and Sabine I give you another Extraordinary Correspondence of Gladys and Furong.

Last night I received this dispatch.

Good Day,

I am a staff of Private Banking Services at the Bank of China (BOC). Iam contacting you concerning our customer and, an investment placedunder our banks management 4 years ago. I have contacted youindependently of our investigation and no one is informed of thiscommunication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that Ibelieve would be of interest to you. Kindly confirm your interest and respond to my private email asbelow ( to enable give you the full details. Thank you as i will appreciate your kind response.

Best Regards,
Zhang Furong

This morning I returned the correspondence with this:

Dearest Zhang Furong,

Good day, what a pleasant salutation. One that I was unaware the Chinese people used. I thought it was reserved for our friends down under in Australia.

I am so honored that you found me in this world to contact. You don’t know how long I have wished to intimate with you too.

The day here is lovely and I often think of what it is like in your realm of the world if it is as beautiful. When I was a child I often took my mother’s garden spade, or large spoon and would go into the yard behind our house and begin to dig. I would dig for hours that turned into days which would then turn into weeks. Sometimes I would have help in the company of my little dog. He would stand next to me pulling the soft red dirt from the ground and pushing it out behind him. We would while away the hours and wonder what life in China was like while digging our way through the earth so we could visit your lovely land.

It is with a happy heart and an eager soul that I await your next correspondence. Thank you so much for sharing your private email as I am sure the bank with which you are employed does not wish to witness our intimate.

Yours Respectfully

I just spit coffee all over my monitor! You're killing me! I can't wait to see his response.

Your intimate was just beautiful Gladys!

LOL! What a way to start the day - spitting coffee all over my keyboard!!
I can't wait to see what the response is going to be!

Btw... I'm originally from Angels Camp California (Calaveras county) We never had a problem with anything eating the petunias, probably because we had a couple of fierce (yeah, right) Labs to keep guard over the yard.
Dad's Petunias were at Clearlake in Lake county.

Gladys -- I found you through your blogher comment on appreciating v. liking, and I have to tell you that you are not the only person who finds your stories entertaining. I'm going to be a regular visitor here -- and I love the Griffin and Sabine series, too. A true treasure. Thanks for reminding people about them.

Leading on an honest Chinese banker like Zhang Furong will send you straight to hell, Gladys! Just ask Pearl Buck...oh, wait, she's dead.
