Postcard Project Update - Thursday, September 22, 2005
Hello! I'm Linda--the famous daughter-in-law being "blamed" for the barrage of post cards, letters and strangeness being sent to my father-in-law. I have fanned the flames by having some of my internet friends send things and mention me so we are perpetuating the confusion. I'm sure this is not the first thing Dana has blamed on me and it won't be the last but it sure has been the most fun! I asked to see the mail the last time we got together and it was such a blast to see the funny things you all are sending. It was also very touching to see that so many strangers are willing to take time and effort to make my family so happy. The humor, the kindness and the craziness of this project is a renewal in my faith in humankind.
Thank you all so much for showing this man how important he is in the world, not just to us.
P.S. I can't wait till I can say "It wasn't me!!!"...or will I just take credit for the idea...

Postcard Project Update - Wednesday, September 21, 2005
We had a small birthday party tonight for my brother Dale. My mom pulled out her finished top part of the quilt(she finished the top part!!) and showed us how it looked. My sister in law asked where she got the pieces to make it, so mom explained all the postcards and mail she got. She said she got letters for about 3 months, and someone mentioned she was making a quilt so she started getting material pieces. And she got crosswords, and purple things, and hummingbird things! She had people from all over the country, even England, and Alaska. She pulled out the box of mail and showed Dale and his wife. It was great to see he rtalking about it. She said she even got a letter explaining it was time to "pass it on" and she'd written to the new guy, but never heard back. I htink she'd like to be included in whatever happens next.
Also, her birthday is October 19. And the first anniversary of Gram passing away is Novermber 1. I know it's going to be tough on her. If any of you still have her address and remember, it'd be nice if you could send something to cheer her up between her birthday and Nov 1 or so.

Need A Band-Aid?
Dad got a "CLEAN" bill of health this week. There were no cancerous cells found left in his shoulder. I can't tell you how happy the family is at this moment! He is going to go through radiation just to be on the "safe" side.
I was talking to Mom this week-end and complained that I needed to go out and buy some band-aides because we keep stealing them from the first aid kit in the van. She laughed and said, "Well, if you were closer, you could come over here. Linda has the people sending bandaids now."
So there you have it.... once again... its all Linda's fault! Poor ol' Linda!
