The Cheer-Up-Alan Project
One of my faithful readers asked if I'd send her Dad's address so she could send him the occasional note or card. (Thanks, Leslie!) The problem with this is that I have a deeply ingrained instinct against giving out street addresses; and, anyway, Dad can't read anymore, because his vision's really bad.
But if anyone wants to e-mail me a nice note for Dad, I'd be delighted to read it to him! I actually think this is a fabulous idea.
Please keep your messages secular, since he's completely anti-religious. All kinds of people are praying for him, and I'm more grateful for that than I can say, but we'll keep it our little secret, okay? The goal here is not to raise his blood pressure precipitously!
I won't be offended if anyone doesn't do this -- we're all super-busy, and writing to someone you don't know is a little awkward -- but I'll be very touched if anyone does.
My e-mail address is susanpal (at) aol (dot) com.
