After the Deluge

As you all know, we just wrapped up the opening week of our summer fundraiser. Theoretically the process will continue all summer until the opening week of autumn fundraiser begins, but last week was the big week. It’s a good thing I don’t have to work so intensely all the time — those eighteen-hour days are grueling.

So what do we call this wrap-up? “Post mortem” doesn’t quite strike the right note. How about “post partum”? We say “antediluvian” for “before the Flood”. Does anyone ever say “postdiluvian”*?

Anyway, here’s a final roster of the locations from which our donors hail. There was a real flurry of first-time donors over the last few days, some of them from places we don’t usually see, such as Mississippi and Thailand:

Stateside: Arizona, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, W. Virginia, and Washington

Near Abroad: Canada

Far Abroad: Australia, Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, India, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, and the UK

A big tip of the Baronial pickelhaube to everyone who made the tip jar clink!

Now we’ll see how things go during the long march of the “Dog Days” this summer. If the interstitial flow swells beyond the trickle we experienced during the previous period, the Steppenwolf may well be kept away from the doors of the great hall at Schloss Bodissey…

* Yes, I know they do. The question was whimsical and rhetorical.

  1. Baron, I want to donate because I think you are wonderful, but I do not understand the payment process. What does it mean, ‘enter description’ ‘Units?’ If this is some cute trick involving dispatch of a cup, it creates difficulties for me as I have no mailing address at the moment. And I don’t want a cup anyway. Can you give us a simple, one touch, pay here and forget about it option?

    • Unfortunately, I can only provide what PayPal offers. I apologize if the process is difficult. Maybe one of our other readers could supply advice and/or tips…?
