Snail Mail

Back home to the land of humidity and heat index. My first and favorite thing to do once I am back home is to dig through my mail pile. Now, pile is a strong term when applied to my mail here. All three pieces of mail were calmly and patiently waiting for me, but one piece did strike me as different.

Upon closer investigation of this odd envelope, I noticed the return address pointed to none other than The Southern Gentleman.

I gingerly opened the envelope to find the following scribbled in his hand on personalized stationary:

Dear Patsy,

What is happening? I am trying to get things together for the show. So much to do, including some work on my website.... Fingers are crossed.

All else is O.K. Been playing more [sport activity], getting my house organized, and catching up on reading. Here's hoping all is peachy in SxSWland.

Take good care and look forward to telling you all about the show.

The Southern Gentleman :)

What brought this on I asked myself. It has only been a few weeks since his last email to me, an email I never responded to. I peeked at the date of the last email... and much to my surprise it was dated a month ago! Yikes!

So I enjoyed a few cocktails last night and then called him. It went directly into voicemail, and I left a message. Hopefully he calls back tonight or I will have to send him an email tomorrow.

I LOVE snail mail- it seems to be dying a slow death.
I'm glad you called him back- I'm dating vicariously through you.
