So far, we have had a lot of fun with Horse Trade Month. Everyone has taken our August incentive in the spirit it was intended. I have copied and pasted below (with permission) a particularly creative email offer we received (and accepted.)
Dear Friends at Folbot,
F F is for “Folbot: the Finest”, and “Falling in Love” with a concept I’d never even heard of until a few weeks ago.
O O is for “Opportunity Knocks.” Imagine, Folbot is having a SALE.
L L is for “Living Life to the Fullest.” Imagine, the orthopaedic poster child, eligible for Medicare on the basis of age, paddling quietly along a lagoon or lake shore, watching birds and photographing to her heart’s content.
B B is for my “Beloved,” of 44 years, who says “If you’re going to get one, we BOTH need one.”
O O is for “OK, join me on this fabulous journey of exploration and adventure.”
T T is for “Tell me, Folbot, that you’ll accept my offer!”
One Aleut (green), with EXP package
One Yukon (blue), with EXP package
total offer: $xxxx [Surely you didn’t think I would divulge that. -ed.]
delivery – yesterday!
Unfortunately, we couldn’t deliver yesterday, but the buyer was understanding and will begin getting younger each year in a couple of weeks.
Keep those cards and letters coming.
