MARILYN HAGERTY: After Christmas, all well bred children write thank you notesDear Shirley, Right now I have a headache and a sore throat. I am hot and I am cold. I hope you are faring better down there in Arizona as the New Year 2012 swiftly approaches. It was good talking with you on Christmas Day from Pittsburgh. That was a wonderful day watching James, 11, and Carmen, 8, rip open their Christmas gifts. I do believe their parents will be sitting them down to write thank you letters. I tell the grandkids that all well mannered children write thank you notes.
