a very nice letter from a senator

It's not every day that you get a letter with letterhead that says United States Senate*.

You may recall in my last post I mentioned that Dan had sent off a complaint (there is a formal way of doing this) about a government agency. That was Monday, April 23rd. The letter in the photo below was dated April 24th, Dan received it two days later.  Have a look. 

Dan took this photo with his phone and sent it to me via text. I was at Cabin 12 with a big gang of knitters when I received this. I was utterly distracted after that. MOVEMENT AT LAST! 

This means that things will finally get happening. He, my new friend Senator Richard Burr, is going to "try to resolve this as soon as possible".  Dan and I want to be excited, and we sort of are, but we are also not holding our breath because things don't seem to have been going well previously. This, however, is a glimmer of hope. It means that my Three Things from my last post must be working. (I finished sock two out of four today, by the way).

Dan sent off the requested documents the first thing the following morning, yesterday. With any luck, we will hear something next week, if the fast turnaround time for the first letter is any indication.

So, YAY!

*I have cropped the official letterhead from this photo because I am not skilled enough in any photo manipulation programs to be able to blur out Dan's home address. The Internet does not need to know that.


  1. Oh Stacey, this is terrific!! I am so excited for you! I can't wait to hear what happens next!
