More Cards for Gordon

A couple more cards to report for Gordon's birthday:

5. Ana Micaela, someone in Portugal I met through the luck of the draw on Postcrossing. She sent a fun card with messages in Portugese and English for Gordon, along with a letter for me.

6. Karen, a new blogger at I am Rushmore. You should check out her fantastic artwork on her blog. She graciously shared her talents with Gordon and me, too, and I wish I could do what she does!!

I think Gordon's really going to appreciate the cards and notes from everyone. Thank you!

Great for all those Birthday wishes Gordon will love it!

I have good news for you! Every first of the month Sophia picks out the winner's name for my etsy shop and your name came out Maria! You get to pick your free item! Let me know your choice. Hope you are having a fine day!
No way!! How wonderful, Claudia. I'm going to let Maya pick this evening, and I'll send you an e-mail this evening.

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
