Someone in Australia sent us cash in a delightful envelope featuring official photos from the Queen’s 60th jubilee. There was no visible postmark on the envelope, so I can’t say exactly when it was mailed. The cryptic name of the sender listed on the back of the envelope was nowhere to be found in our email archives, so I can’t send him/her/it a thank-you note.
To our anonymous benefactor Down Under: Thank you so much for thinking of us in the dead of our winter and the height of your summer! You know who you are, but I sure don’t. May your summer be lacking in wildfires and your neighborhood lacking in culture-enrichers.
