Just received the nicest thing in the mail. . . not only the item itself, but the thought behind it. It was a surprise from my Big Sister in my college sorority, a person I hadn't communicated with for an embarrassing number of decades. We had very recently reconnected via Facebook, and the note she sent with the surprise gift indicated that she's been reading this blog all along, which makes me feel so happy. As a result of reading the blog, she knew that I was deeply into Route 66, so when she found this cigar box purse at a Delta Gamma (that's my sorority) fundraiser, she bought it and sent it to me. I'm truly moved, and very excited about reconnecting with Mary Frances.
Thanks so much, Mary Frances! ITB
