A small but charming bundle got mailed today. There are 14 items in it, not a bad number, they just all happen to be thin (Bob Porterfield is on vacation), so it was quite a bit easier to stuff than the last couple bundles have been. Ivan and I made good time around the table. Not that our ease should keep you from sending things in.
You'll notice that the envelopes look familiar; every month there are a few left over and I can't stand to let them go to waste. After all, they were purchased, printed, and sent to me, and I live by the old-fashioned motto of USE IT UP, WEAR IT OUT, MAKE IT DO, OR DO WITHOUT. So you might get a collector's edition of March 2016, while your neighbor might have September 2017. There are envelopes printed by Michael Coughlin, Danny Kelly, Ivan Snyder, and me all mixed up together.
Thanks, as always, for keeping the bundle alive. It's such a great way to bring people from all over together every month, all of us reading the bundles together.
A few credits: the title for this post comes from June Bassimer's contribution to the bundle, and my daughter Rosalie (5) helped me make the sunshine. In a town like this, you've got to make your own. Note: five year olds are not made for production work.
