Some of it was anonymous, because the senders didn’t include a note with their package, so if you’d like to own up to the Shepherd’s Tale/parasol combo, or the full copy of Rocksmith (because while I think I know who sent it, it arrived awfully quickly, with the cord included with the game), please do so, so that I can thank you personally. Until then, though – thank you!
Thanks to Joe A. for the DVD (“Done the Impossible: The Fans’ Tale of Firefly & Serenity”).
Thanks to G.F. from Kentucky for the card and the gift inside.
Here’s a photo of the items received yesterday and today – some were from Operation: Lyme Party, others were “just because” or for my birthday:
The parasol is “stretching” right now (the material it’s made of will make it prone to tearing if it’s not carefully opened, and leaving it open for a bit will help to reduce that chance), but when it’s in the carry pouch, it’s less than half the size of that video game package.
I don’t have a lot of room for stuff – it’s why I don’t ask for things for Christmas or my birthday when asked. People listened to that, and sent small, easy-to-store items. I really appreciate that, even though it might seem like a weird thing to be thankful for.
Thanks, everyone! I’m glad I have stock of bottled water back here, or else I’d dehydrate myself from all the crying (happy crying, I assure you).
