    Something to brighten up a rainy wednesday

    DEAR ABBY: My mother was recently invited to a shower and was given specific instructions not to put her name on the gift. The reason? The honoree plans to issue one general thank-you to everyone because she "doesn't have the time" to send individual thank-you notes.

    Abby, if someone takes the time and spends the money to buy a gift, shouldn't the recipient be gracious enough to write a personal note? -- THOUGHT I'D HEARD IT ALL IN OHIO

    DEAR THOUGHT: Of course she should! If the honoree is so busy that she plans to forgo thanking her guests for their generosity, she should save everyone's time, money and effort and forgo the shower.

    wow.  I think I'd be too busy to attend the shower and not send a gift.

    All the shower guests should go in on a joint gift: an etiquette book. :-)

    I wonder what kind of shower it was for- bridal or baby?

    I recently gave a gift at a baby shower (one from the registry and one homemade) and the mother to be mass emailed the shower attendees with a thank you and a picture of her in front of the gift table at the shower. No handwritten note ever arrived, which I found odd... I really appreciate a handwritten thank you.

    I wonder if the "instructions" came from the honoree or from the ill-advised hostess.  The guilty party should be b i t c h slapped with Emily Post's latest tome!

    (But, JEnvie, your photo of your "hot" dog in the bun always cracks me up, no matter what the day or the weather!)
