I got a nice surprise when I went to pick up my mail from the post office on Friday. Well, to tell you the truth, I actually had THREE surprises. One came from Alan, which is somehow related to this. Thank you Alan...took a while, but at least it's here!
The second surprise is from the owner of said blog, who also happens to be the owner of this blog, as well as the owner of this one AND this one!!! Talk about prolific writer. She's sweet, she's funny...and she's Santos...and I think we're about the same age. Thank you so much Santos!
The last surprise came in the form of a couple of books that I had ordered as a birthday present to myself -- they were actually belated gift purchases.
And here's the photo...
