Dear Leonard,
I did eat some Gumbo on Friday, but not at 4:00 a.m. It was really good, and really hot. Be a good boy,
I love you --
Daddy

FAIRMONT HOTEL, NEW ORLEANS
Bailey's Restaurant — Have an urge for Creole Gumbo at 4:00 a.m.? Bailey's is open 24 hours every day. Great grog. Great food. Bailey's: for the unwinders. Night or day.

Leonard's comments:

It looks like the women in the restaurant are toasting each other with big ice cream sundaes.

I wonder who came up with the slogan "for the unwinders".

Oh, I wanted to point out that my dad uses two short dashes instead of an em dash--a sure sign of someone who's been dealing with ASCII for years.
