Bottom of the email photos

Jordan Palmer, Chief Digital Content Officer

Shalom, and welcome to the new archive of all the bottom of the email photos. I get asked about them a lot and if I’m saving them. I wasn’t, but now I am.

Sorry to interrupt this morning’s email, but I need to parent real quick.
Message to Max. Find a place to get your haircut at school. This is the last time I drive to pick you up and bring you home just to get a haircut.
Love Dad.

Every month I get a beard trim. It’s like a spa day for me. I go to Dapper Gents in Ladue, (ask for Carrie). But the reason you’re looking at a sandwich is that even though I brought my lunch, by the time I was nearing my appointment at 11:50, I got so hungry, I knew I wouldn’t make it through my 1-hour haircut/beard trim. (No jokes about my “lack of hair.”) Anyway with 15 minutes till my appointment, I ran into Companion Bakery, and had the absolute best sandwich, “The Frenchie.” It is my sandwich of the year.

Dear Ziggy,
My name is Adrienne and I’m on the left.
And, my name is Jimmy Buffett, I’m the handsome dude on the right.
We are both domestic short hairs, adopted 6 years ago by our human Karen Comensky.
Karen will tell you that Adrienne is bossy, Ziggy, but believe me, it’s not true.

I would just love to meet the copywriter of this gloriously funny advertisement from the February 1, 1967 issue of the Jewish Light. Let’s note, that all average students need to be accompanied by two average parents. Also, brilliant use of the P.S.

With the sudden return of winter, it was a great weekend to relax, read and slurp soup. So we did all of the above.

By day Ellen Futterman is the mild-mannered Editor-in-Chief of the Jewish Light. By night, she becomes a super interviewer. Last night at the Jewish Book Festival, she led the conversation with Julia Haart, author of “Brazen” and the Netflix show, “My Unorthodox Life.”

Happy Birthday Mom! 🎂🎁🎈🎊
And yes, I’m wearing the same shirt from the Monday picture, just 1 year apart. It’s a great shirt.

Hi Ziggy,
This is our nice Jewish dog, Scout Bernstein. She likes to romp around in the backyard with her best Buddy and next-door neighbor, Mario Levy (another nice Jewish dog). One is a vicious beast. The other is a pit bull. Both rescues!

You know, I dug out the old Bar Mitzvah album last week, I post up a picture with possibly my worst haircut ever and invite the entire St. Louis Jewish community to join me in celebrating what we all looked like back in the day. I got two emails. That ain’t cuttin’ it folks. I need you to work with me, just like: (from left) (half face) Chris Huddleston, Brad Seigel, Kurt Wulfert, Steve Schraibman, Barbie Epstein, Aimee Kornblet Harris, Barbara Steinberg Askenazi, Elizabeth Exarhou, Cathy Summers, Brian Bruce, Ron Miller, Eric Dillner, all did as I was break dancing on the dance floor.
