Neighbor Update

As many of you know, readers of this blog have been contributing for a while to help my neighbor out. (If you're not sure what I'm talking about, go here.) She came by Rancho Lake tonight to give me copies of some poetry the younger granddaughter has been writing, which I will read tomorrow. She also expressed her thanks to you guys who've been giving, from all over the world. I don't have a direct comment, because she began stammering and became very self-conscious, but she kept saying what a blessing the gifts have been. Another gift is going next week, and she will be receiving one of the_child's Christmas Wreaths courtesy of a reader here.

I'll also be running a mini charity auction here soon. An artist here in the Northwest is donating a handmade Christmas ornament to be sold to support the Neighbor fund. I'll throw one or two things in as well -- maybe an original drawing of the_child's, or a signed print of one of my recent photos (the doll's head?). If anyone else would like to donate to the auctionlet, please let me know.
