Getting heavily-decorated mail tickles me,
The Engineer, and our local post mistresses.
Tickles a lot of other folks along the way, too, I’m guessing.
A flock of beautiful blue birds
brought this package from Australia,
a box filled with – count them – 160 blocks.
Thank you, Glenda Williams!
Beautiful flowers adorn another envelope from Susan Getchell in Florida.
Lee Durbin sent another envelope of blocks,
this one decorated in patriotism, and it sparked
the idea to make five blocks a day over Memorial Day weekend
(which I did and well tell you about soon)
as a way of remembering and appreciating
those who died to prevent atrocities
like the one that murdered the 70273 people
we commemorate with The 70273 Project.
Just seeing Kitty Sorgen’s name on the return address label
makes me smile, so when I turn it over to see this,
it’s like getting a bonus.
Orderly, well-dressed felines
brought this envelope from Marie Johansen.
And this one from Tina Davis was just plain fun.
Included in her envelope was a piece of fabric
and a request for me to sign it
and become part of her signature quilt.
Sometimes I open envelopes to find jewelry on the inside –
like this uplifting note from Susan Guild
and this one from Samantha Kendig
and this exciting news from MJ Kinman.
Then there’s this creative postcard
from the talented one known as Della Monk.
It really doesn’t have any relation to The 70273 Project,
but it’s so much fun, there’s no way I could leave it out.
No matter how your blocks get to me,
I thank y’all for being part of
The 70273 Project
and making it such an enjoyable
and worthwhile endeavor.
