Well, it’s certainly very creative, sweetie. Image: Wikipedia.

It has come to the attention of The Management that some folks are having trouble accessing this blog. Unacceptable! I’m sure it’s got something to do with the mischievous internet goblins who know that I’m thinking of deleting my Facebook account. More on that later. Anyway, I’ve got a call out to my brilliant web wizard, Julie Feirer. I’m sure there’s something she can do. She must not fail!

I am writing thank-you notes to the folks who donated during the First-Ever PaperGirl Pledge Drive, but I’ve got a problem. You see, if you donated via PayPal, I could simply email you a thank-you, but this is not my style. Your PaperGirl is, perhaps not surprisingly, super into paper. The problem is that I don’t get a person’s mailing address with a PayPal donation, so I am going to have to ask for it. It will be a slight nightmare keeping everything straight, but I can try:

If you donated will you please email me your mailing address? (If you haven’t donated, why, there’s still time!)

I’d like you to use my school email, since it’s separate and it’s funny how after you graduate from a school, you don’t have to really send emails about school anymore. Here’s that address:

m f o n s @ s a i c . e d u

Use no spaces, of course, when you enter that address into your “To” field; I’m just trying to keep the spambots away. (Robots crawl the internet looking for email addresses to spam. You know that, right? If you have a website or a newsletter or anything, don’t put your email address on the screen without funky spacing. I think it’s supposed to help.)

The thank-you notes are being written. I have a huge bag already. It’s going to take time, but it’s important to me that I send you a proper thank-you note. My mama raised me good.

    And that just reminded me that I had yet to donate and needed to subscribe. Life has been hectic. Corrected both of those. Love me some PaperGirl!

    Since you have pictured the seagull visiting you with spirit you must be home from the Oregon rain. And soon oh very soon we will be receiving our next edition of Quiltfolks …. oh to wait is hard. And yes your Mama raised all of you right and true and good. I’m sure! It shows clearly and brightly!!!

    I’m glad you addressed the problem of accessing the blog (at times). for a few days, it won’t work & then it does again! Very annoying, to say the least!

    I donated a little bit to the cause. I don’t need a personal thank you, just to know that you’re doing better now is enough.

    I don’t donate for thanks, I donate because I wish to pass on my blessings and reward those who share theirs. No thanks necessary.

    Exactly what Glenda and Loreen said …. love you a lot, but I don’t need a thank you note either, but then, maybe I might want to receive one, just so that I can say that MARY FONS sent me a letter….but you have SO many to write and send–don’t want you getting writer’s cramp, but then, maybe I MIGHT want to receive one . . . . . . a true dilemma ( I checked, can be spelled with one or 2 m’s, but it looks strange either way ..) AARGH, I’ll go think about it.

    Yikes! Think of all that postage. I think we know you are grateful. Keep that postage money and buy yourself some good ice-cream.
