Hi friends.

Those of you who follow me may remember that back in April I shared a post about a book signing and birthday party our family hosted for my 88 year old father.

I am blessed that he is not only alive and kicking at this ripe old age, he is also very smart, witty and full of life.

In fact, one of the perks I enjoy most about writing this blog is that my dear-ole-dad proofreads and edits every one of my posts, so we talk almost daily. Therefore, if you find any typos it’s all his fault;). Ironically, my dad, whose native language is Spanish, is one of the most articulate people I know in the English language. He is also one of the most vital, spirited and spry seniors I know.

One of the ways my dad stays healthy is by swimming in his pool every day. He enjoys his back yard and wanted to spruce it up with some new outdoor furniture. So he went on a shopping expedition to Pottery Barn where they were offering a discount on purchases made with a Pottery Barn credit card. Wishing to save, he applied for their credit card. Having always enjoyed perfect credit, my father was shocked when Pottery Barn advised him that his application had been declined because they had been notified by the credit reporting agency, Equifax, that HE WAS DEAD!

Well, as I have stated, my father, thankfully, is very much alive and kicking! So in an effort to correct the inaccurate Equifax records he wrote them “a letter from the grave”.

The passing of one’s parent is certainly never a laughing matter, but in this case I think we can all enjoy a good chuckle from his letter to Equifax. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

By the way, my father has yet to resolve this matter with Equifax.

So there you have it: A LETTER FROM THE GRAVE
