We hates seeing big manila envelopes in the mailbox. (I'm channeling Golum for some weird reason.)
GREAT things come in #10 size envelopes. I got two of them this week.
#1. A lovely fan letter from Abby, Age 10, who reads Cricket magazine and wanted to let the editors know that she liked my story “Rattlesnake Rain” from the August issue. Cricket made me a copy and forwarded it my way. Thank you!
#2. A second envelope from Cricket WITH A CHECK!!!
That means two more #10s with MONEY coming my way. I’m so mercenary. But I like the cash validation. Who's with me?
