Hi Mag Mor,
I sent out invitations by US mail, but I keep learning that a number
of you don't actually open your mail (?!).
So let me remind everyone that I'm retiring (TODAY) and having a party
to celebrate it tomorrow, Thursday, July 20, at St. Marks on the Campus,
1309 R St., 7-9 pm.
If you are on this list and know me even a little, you are invited!!!,
whether or not you got an invitation--or looked at yours. And anyone
you speak to from Mag Mor who was omitted: it was inadvertent, bring them!
However, if you didn't get an invitation in the mail (or don't
remember seeing it) and are coming, I'd appreciate a response (email or
phone 488-4508); if you got a written invitation and are not coming, I'd
appreciate it if you let me know. B e c a u s e: like Bilbo's party in
the Fellowship of the Ring, I'm giving a gift to each guest, and would
like to pick one for you if I know you're coming and not haul it to site
and home again if you aren't. ( If someone will take it home for you,
tho, I'll happily drag it to site, since I've allocated Friday for
running the gifts to people who didn't make it.)
Major lesson so far: Tolkien only imagined such a party, he didn't
actually do it! It's been fun, but it hasn't been simple!
Back to packing...
