Just to let you know that your wonderfully thoughtful gift passed safely through the time warp and arrived here ripe and ready and was deeply appreciated.
I have had surprises before but to have your blessing on the first day of this new adventure in my life is, without doubt, the best.
Earth, by the way, is a garden of delights - in case you wondered. I will do my best to follow your advice, dad, because you are the light. How come you know so much???
