Something Missing

Who would know unless I told them that this short is a lipogram that omits the twenty sixth letter in the alphabet. Can you figure out if every other letter is present. Just in case you are wondering I am quite bored off my rocker.

(Now without an E) – Who would know had I not told, that this short is a lipogram that omits a famous symbol from a sword slashing bandit. Just hang with it and trust. I know I should quit now and vary my approach.

(As part of further evidence of my approaching insanity when ever I get bored I try to rewrite sentences or short stories as a lipogram without the use of a specific letter. The hardest are omitting specific vowels. So there now you have a mind exercise you can do when you are bored)

Happy Solstice. In Minnesota you have to celebrate today it is the turning point that means days are going to get longer and the spring is beginning its slow return.

if u r interested in lipograms, u should read a book called "Jack & Mary" by a Lebanese professor ( I can't remember his name right now and I am not near my library ), it is an E lipogram book, very good work.
