Whew! There were a lot of checks today. I saw the mail man coming and went out to meet him. He had his box with the envelopes all stacked up. When he saw me, he said “You NEVER get much mail! This is CRAZY!” He’s not the friendliest of the mail men we’ve had here so I just said “Yep, it’s crazy!”
Saturday I asked Vince and Chad if they wanted to help open the envelopes. Chad did but Vince didn’t. When I came in with the pile of envelopes today, Vince said . . “Wait for me. I want to help!”
You can see that he didn’t get dressed up for the occasion. He had been outside working and yes, it’s HOT and HUMID here. I’m so looking forward to getting to Texas where it’s HOT but there’s rarely any humidity.
I think I’ve acknowledged all the checks I was asked to acknowledge but as you can see, I had a couple of helpers so if I haven’t written to you and you think your check should have been here and you asked for an acknowledgment, please write me. Obviously, I’m not acknowledging receipt of every check but I’m trying to write those who have asked.
I’ll add up the checks and update the “Help Joplin” page so you can click on that tab at the top of the blog. Thanks again to everyone for your donations! I know I don’t need to repeat it but I want you to know how touched I am! So many have written notes . . most are sending encouragement and good wishes for our Texas move. Many write that they read the blog often but have never commented. Yes, I’m touched!!
