"I had a terrible case of the past."

Rainy today, and currently it's only 41˚F (it's dropped from 44˚F in the last hour). But we're supposed to be back up to 60˚F by Wednesday.

This will be very short, as I have to be at the John Hay Library at 3:30 this afternoon to deliver the next lot of boxes (eight, to be precise). I think there will only be one more major delivery after this. By the time I'm done, I'll have donated many thousands of pages dating back to the late 1970s.

The Patreon has, at this point, exceeded all my hopes, and that is an enormous weight off my mind. We have only $87 to go to hit our stretch goal, and I hope that will happen by midnight tonight. I'm a bit stunned by your generosity. No, more than a bit. I'm simply stunned.

The kindness of strangers has always taken me off guard and disarmed me.

Today is Algernon Blackwood's 147th birthday.

Later Taters,
Aunt Beast
