And it was slammed again last night. But after I lifted it up and straightened it out this morning, I reached inside for yesterday’s mail and found a bright shiny gold envelope with a Padua address mixed between bills and advertisements.
I knew it was from Elisa Rolle. , internationally known m/m book reviewer. I have relatives in Italy, but no one in Padua. Maybe a Christmas card that was delayed thanks to my wonderful post office?
But it was a thank you note, on a Paul Richmond card, with a handwritten note inside thanking me for helping out with the Rainbow Awards this year. It was the last thing I expected, and a very nice surprise on a cold, icy day in Pennsylvania.
