I wanted to thank those of you who have sent or are sending my brother a card (if you don't know what I'm talking about you can read about it in this post). Also a huge thank you to those of you who have forwarded the message on to others either through email or through your blogs. The cards are starting to trickle in now and it makes getting the mail each day so much fun. I know he's going to love reading each of the cards. I've had a couple of questions about the cards, so I thought I'd address those here.
Is it alright to send a letter instead of a card? Absolutely! I want my brother to feel appreciated and know that people back home are thinking of him. It won't matter to him if that comes in the form a letter or a card.
Can I hand-deliver the card to you at convention? Absolutely! There's no need to pay for postage if you're going to see me in person. I'll be zipping around on a motorized scooter, so I shouldn't be difficult to spot. Plus I have my mug shot on my blog so you know what I look like.
Will I be opening the cards or just sending the envelopes sealed to my brother? I thought about this one and I decided to open all of the cards and letters. I'm glad that I did this because some of you are tucking in little notes or cards for me too. Thank you! If you would like for your card to be in a nice envelope for my brother, some people are putting their card in a double envelope like you would for a wedding invitation. Those that don't have a double envelope, don't worry. I'll put your cards in nice envelope for him.
Why am I opening the cards? I don't feel comfortable sending items to a US military base without knowing what the contents are.
So now my question for you--do you want to see pictures of the cards I'm receiving? I'd be happy to post them to my blog if enough of you want to see them.
I've also received several more blog awards. I received the "Brillante Weblog" award from Pam, Mauna, and Dawn.
Thank you so much. It means a lot that you like my blog enough to tag it. If I have left anybody out that has tagged me, please let me know so I can fix it.
I'm running around trying to get things done before I leave for convention tomorrow so I don't have time to come up with seven random things about myself. I haven't packed the first item of clothing, but all my swaps are packed! Does that tell you something about my priorities? LOL! I'll try to post something before I leave tomorrow, if not you'll be hearing from me at convention. I can't wait.
Thanks for stopping by. ~Dannie
