So I'm trying to clean out my extra bedroom and part with an accumulation of junk from the past 20 years or so (next project: same thing in overpacked storage locker), and look what I found. N@ wrote me this letter in 1990, when she was a wee lass working part-time at the same radio station where I was news director, and had just announced my departure for TV.
First, the front of the envelope. Note the return address and the 39-cent stamp.
Now, the artwork on the back of the envelope.
And, the pièce de résistance, the letter.
The "Ronnie m'boy" reference is to the time I memo'd young Natalie (yeah, snail mail and memos -- this was 1990, after all) for coming off a BN newscast one night by thanking the newscaster by saying "Thanks, Ronnie m'boy".
I'm not sure whether I'll keep this. It could be a collector's item some day.
