    This is your St. Louis Fan Club, dear…we cannot make the calling card thing send our messages to you and even Miss K cannot make it work. So we are trying this. It is a terrible thing to get so old and be so thick-headed about new things like tech.

    We do so love you and we are having loads of fun listening to Miss K read the PP books to us again. We take turns wearing the pin you sent us with the book last year…Aggie lost it in her apt and Miss K had to come over and crawl around on the floor to look for it, but she did find it behind the bureau. So Aggie loses a turn.

    We so love you and your style and your blog! We will ask one of the helpers here at the senior center to fix up our awful typing before we try to send this out. We are sorry to have been so long in saying hello, but that calling card thing has us stumped!

    How pretty you look in those corsets, dear!

    Love from all of us here in St. Louis…..Helen (82), Annabelle (78), Esther (92), Aggie! (94), Dolores (72), Miriam [she is new] (84) and Miss K

    Part of me is charmed they had difficulties, because now everyone else can know about him. I shouldn't have favorites, of course, but the St. Louis Fan Club ladies are particularly marvelous.

    Hello my lovelies! I have replied to you via email to Miss K, ladies. Hopefully, that will work. If not, I adore you all very much, and am delighted to have heard from you. I was beginning to get a little worried, since it had been a while. Much love, Miss G
