Top of the evening to all...
After Justin Trudeau was sworn at...I mean sworn in...as Prime Minister, I sent him a note of congratulations. This is a right and proper courtesy, quite separate from how I might feel about his politics. I assume he got thousands of such notes.
There was a letter from his office when I got back from vacation this last week. Obviously, I opened it. There was a letter thanking me for the note of congratulations. After showing it to several people, we are all of the opinion that it is a signed letter. It was not a stamp. I am flattered.
I had a chuckle though. After everything I wrote about the differences in grammatical styles here and in the US, I noted that the letter from the PM made use of the Oxford comma.
Have a good evening everyone.
