Dear Leonard,
This is the Hotel where I am staying. I went swimming in the swimming pool tonight. I[t] sure was nice to talk to you on the phone tonight. I love you.
Daddy.

Leonard's comments:

I wasn't looking forward to typing all that up, but "Stirrup Cup Lounge" made it worthwhile.

Photos on the front include business dudes working together over beer and pretzels; chef serving prime rib to kids next to a centerpiece of raw, unpeeled carrots; 80s lingerie ladies fawning over Burt Reynolds-esque stud near a pool (presumably not what my dad meant by "I went swimming in the swimming pool"). All at the Dulles Marriott!
