As I type I am under that large green slug cunningly disguised as an “April Shower”.
It’s been a BLAH day, and my mood is not made better by the weather. I am sick of cold, windy, wet, icy weather.
My contact data base says there are 163 stale contacts – people who, in my opinion, are due to be “touched” by me.
I just don’t feel up to phoning, but I make some calls before lunch and strike it lucky, speaking with three people who have been hard-to-get-hold-of this past month.
I left a few voice-mails, but I don’t like doing that unless we are in the midst of a dialogue.
After lunch I just can’t get going, so I decide that one of the reasons I’ve met people, taken them to lunch, left a voice-mail and so on is so that I can feel comfortable sending them an occasional email.
So that’s what I did, to 16 of them.

Not a mass-mailing, but a copy-paste-AND-EDIT of a basic text, including some part of my comments or notes on our previous conversation, smack dab in the middle of the text.
Here’s what it looked like:
