i have sent fewer telegrams than i have toes , but those i sent were of vital importance or meant a great deal to either me or the recipient , its a commercial descision i know , but i wish we still had the chance to indulge , as a telegram says a lot more than any other form of communication , IMHO anyway .

Man, i didnt even realise you could still send telegrams like that!
