It was nearly one year ago when we launched our Valentine's Day tribute to Walter Lord. I was re-living that today while driving to work and remembering how much happiness it brought him to hear from you all. I had planned to pop in to see Barbara McDermott before February 14th and take her a valentine. She still cannot believe how so many people are interested in her and her incredible story. She loves mail too- and stacks notes and postcards on her kitchen table. It has been pretty cold this winter in New England and with all the scary news about war and the economy- I could use some lovey stuff! Shall we try it one more time? For those old Softhearts who missed the first Operation- this is your chance. And this time it does not have to be an antique valentine- I am off to find the pinkest, glittery-est epistle of mush I can find tomorrow! You know the routine- P.O. Box 86 North Stonington, CT 06359. I have a little red velvet trunk just begging to be filled up with cards and little notes. Can we do it one more time?
