Congratulations to Debbie Trostle! She is the Alert Reader who guessed the correct Three Events, which matched the Three Dates I listed on a recent blog post. Click here to review the post and to see her comment: Milestones.
Since Debbie is proficient in her memory for dates, I am snail-mailing her a handmade paper botanical greeting card, which includes a gift bookmark. She will, most likely, snail-mail the card as a birthday greeting.
The card is similar to the one above and is made by Petunia’s Botanicals in Asheville, NC.
The Three Date Clues were:
October 31, 1517:
December 7, 1941:
November 22, 1963:
Debbie guessed each date correctly but I will “enhance” the description of each event:
10.31.1517: On the day of the Eve of All Saints in that year, Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church. The date is now referred to as “Reformation Day” but most people mark it merely as “Halloween” [All Hallow’s Eve].
12.07.1941: The Japanese airborne military bombed the US military Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii.
11.22.1963: The assassination and death of the US President, John F. Kennedy. Two other significant persons died on this exact date: C. S. Lewis and Aldous Huxley.
In my next post, I will recommend a book based on the above fact.
Gentle Readers, you never know when I might decide to bestow a gift!

The picture of the botanical greeting card is so pretty. I might just keep it instead of sending it to someone else. I will look forward to its arrival.
You may keep or give the gift — it is yours to decide! I’ll post [snail-mail] it to you tomorrow morning!
