Time to ’fess up: it is taking us much longer than usual to finish writing our thank-yous for donations from the last quarter’s fundraiser.
Fatigue interferes with all my plans. And sometimes, like the woman in the picture, I have a bad hair day. Not just that I hide it under my hat, but also there are moments when even my hair hurts.
The Baron still has to keep the home page rolling, plus his work behind the scenes.
And y’all! My heavens, so very many donations, without which we couldn’t survive, at least not as Gates of Vienna.
In spite of these impedimenta, we will be writing to each of you. Just because you haven’t received an acknowledgment yet doesn’t mean it’s not coming or that we don’t think about your gift. Failure to answer a donation is bad karma… but many of you know my views on that subject.
While I’m here: we have two unknown donors to acknowledge, both of them snail-mail givers. The first is the Mystery Donor, who has donated incognito in the past. The second sent a gift using his name, but the Baron was unable to find an email under that name, despite an intensive search. Let it be known that we appreciate those two gifts as well.
