Hey Noah

Hey there! Noah, my dear old friend.
     I just wanted you to know, the guys down at the lodge
are cracking quite a few jokes at your expense.
     Bill asked me if you was taking up commercial fishing
or going after Moby Dick. I don't know, some 
giant whale or something he dreamed up.
He should write a scroll about it... I think he 
wraps his turban a little tight sometimes.
     George said to tell you, he would come help you
drop a few trees but he's heading out to the Sahara
to make snow angels... Smart ass..
     Oh! That reminds me. Joe said you already had a
pair of asses to put on board. I think he was referring
to you and me.... Jerk might aught to learn to swim.
     Larry asked me if there was going to be bread fall
out of the sky along with all that water. Said if it was
he was going to quit his job and just live off the land.
I told him to wander around forty or so years; see what
     Look, pal. I know you believe there is going to be
this big flood, but come on, man, you've been working
on this monstrosity for a century now and ain't
nobody seen a drop! And the guys been raking me
over the coals pretty good and...
     Hey, Noah! What's all that dark stuff hanging around
up in the sky?..... Do you hear war drums?...

                                                                             Your friend,
                                                                             Thomas Sr.
