Our Favorite Milkman is Back from the Beach

For those who have been following along, we just got a letter from our favorite milkman … fresh from a trip with his buddies to the beach. And, if you haven’t been following, click the links below to catch up on the ODNT Kleinpeter Dairy Chronicles. It’ll restore your faith in humanity, make you laugh and probably also leave you wanting a nice, tall glass of wholesome, nutritious (Kleinpeter) milk.

No, Mr. Kleinpeter doesn’t advertise on the blog …. yet.

  1.  A Letter to Kleinpeter Dairy Farms
  2. They Wrote Back! The Dairy Company Wrote Back!
  3. Have you hugged your milkman today?
  4. Getting to Know the Charismatic Mr. Kleinpeter
  5. Checking in with Mr. Kleinpeter

In an effort to get the blog up to speed, I’m including his latest two letters in this same post. That’s right. You get two posts for the price of one. Today only! These are the kinds of savings … and more … that you’ll get right here every day at ODNT.

Take that, Mr. Hate-Mail-Writing, Tooth-Loving Dude!

Hi Michele,

I haven’t been checking as I’ve been out of town. But, I’m back now!

Sounds like you’ve made me a hero….whew, my forehead is sweating…..

Let me think on the milk copywriting a bit more. I do have a great team here and we’re meeting next week to discuss strategies. I’ll ask the girls, Marsanne Golsby and Melinda Walsh, what they think about this, among the other 20 things we’ll be discussing.

Again, thanks for being our customer, and thanks for the opportunity to discuss this option.

And then, a few days later, I got this second letter from Mr. K.

Hi again,

I’m back from the beach!

Every year, myself and 4-6 high school buddies hit Orange Beach for about 4 days. We used to call it a golf trip, but the golf got in the way of our fun, so now we call it a Gulf trip.

It was great to see some of my pals, some of whom I see just once a year.

The older we get, the more fun this trip is.

Anyway, we made it back for Mother’s Day, all of us, and now we are starting to remember some of the funny things and email them to each other.

We are already counting down the days, only 359 left, until we meet again.

Enough of that, tell me how you won a contest??

I admit, I haven’t checked your blog (leave no bruising please), because when I take vacation, I still work, and 250 emails a day, on the beach, is not easy to handle, but I do.

Please update me,

Jeff.

Oh, and for the record, I’ve already written him back … and I got a response with some exciting news that I never saw coming. I just might have found an angle for my reunion with which I don’t think anyone will be able to compete.

Stay tuned!

  1. Uh-oh. Now this sounds good. I can’t wait for the update.

  2. I’m all a titter waiting to see what happens next…(that was bad, I know, and probably overdone, but I couldn’t stop myself)

  3. So, do those of those lucky enough to attend said reunion with you get a preview before the rest of the ODNT readers?

  4. Is it your own got milk commercial? Can’t wait for the update!

  5. Way to go ODNT, you are milking this conversation 😉 Seriously though, I hope you do have an opportunity to write copy for them, it would be smart on their part!
