Don't know how clever it is, but I have long used "Looking Forward" as
my way of closing a note or letter.  I was "inspired" after reading
Ted "CNN" Turner used it in his correspondence.

When I was a teenager I once signed a letter to my brother "Yours till
ice skates." He didn't "get it" until months later.
