NEVER FAR FROM MY THOUGHTS

Dear Bunker,

Mrs. Sims believes her husband sends her signs from above that he is watching down over her. I was thinking about these signs the other day when I opened my email junk folder and found an email from "Mike" with the subject line "hello". I knew it was spam, but for a minute I had a warm feeling that you were sending me a sign, just to say hi.

I've been reading The Federalist Papers, just like we discussed. Boy, do I wish you were here to urge me on. Would you mind too terribly if I skipped ahead a bit? I'm wading through the letters about the Articles of Confederation, but I'd rather be reading about the Constitution. Is it cheating to hop ahead to the good stuff?

A few days ago, the husband and I were naming all the places we want to visit once we get back to the US. Coming to pay our respects to you is close to the top of the list.

I miss you.
Sarah

P.S. John misses you too. We had a good talk about it recently. You touched so many of us...

1 no cheating by reading ahead.... gotta read the whole Articles of Confederation piece to see how it all gets solved in the Constitution... can't grok the one without the other.

2 Funny... this happened to me with my grandfather... he had past away 1 month to the day... I opened my email and there the sender was "my grandfather"... well his name... I got a lump in my stomach and opened it up...It was a life insurance spam email... but for one moment I was hoping it was from him. Enjoyed your blog... Take care!

3 I think Mike would say "read ahead only to help you understand how the constitution was written with the cumulative thoughts of what went before, so read ahead and stay the course with the articles at the SAME TIME. This will help your understanding of the whole." I can't really speak for him, but that is what I think, and I read all his local educational stuff.

4 I know the sensation - only my email was real. My father-in-law died last September, and I was very close to him. We spent a lot of time hasing out computer stuff together. Anyways, a month after he died, I got an email from him! It was actually from his girlfriend, who didn't know my email address, so she had booted up his computer to find it, and just sent the email from his account. That was very spooky, let me tell you!
