This was actually in the bag with your Gator stuff. I almost threw it away and then I realized it was a postcard. Anyway, I thought you might like it. Hope you liked the silly Gator stuff …

The neighbors are setting off lots of fireworks. That used to drive Reebok crazy!

Anyway (oops!) love you lots, Mom

I love this postcard. I’ve had it hanging on the refrigerator of every place I’ve lived since she sent it. I forgot that it had a message written on the reverse until a few months ago. Heck, I’d even forgotten it was from mom. She loved Spurrier as much as I do.

I can’t remember exactly, but based on the date I think she sent me a bunch of Gator t-shirts and hats for my 30th birthday that year and that’s what she means by, “your Gator stuff.”

My son is three now and he frequently points to it and says, “Daddie!” and “Go Gators!” which I think would make her laugh.
