It took me two months and a day, but...

Rook Rook pawn Mate

... I finally caught the White King in a Rook-Rook-pawn combination checkmate on my 36th black move of this server-based correspondence chess game.

The picture above shows our board as seen from my Black side of the (virtual) table after the final move. And the full game record is below:

1. e4 d6 2. Bc4 e6 3. Bf1 Nf6 4. Bc4 Nxe4 5. d3 Ng5 6. Qg4 Be7 7. Qe2 O-O 8. Qe3 d5 9. Qd2 dxc4 10. dxc4 Bc5 11. h4 Ne4 12. Qe2 Bxf2+ 13. Kf1 Ng3+ 14. Kxf2 Nxh1+ 15. Ke3 Ng3 16. Qg4 Nf5+ 17. Kf4 g6 18. h5 Nh6 19. Qe2 Qd4+ 20. Qe4 Qxe4+ 21. Kxe4 c5 22. Bxh6 Rd8 23. Bg5 Rd4+ 24. Ke3 Rg4 25. Nf3 Nd7 26. h6 Rxg2 27. Nbd2 b6 28. b3 e5 29. Ne4 Ba6 30. Nf6+ Nxf6 31. Bxf6 Re8 32. Nxe5 Rh2 33. Ke4 Bb7+ 34. Kf4 Rxh6 35. Ng4 Re4+ 36. Kg5 Rh5# 0-1

We were playing with a five-days-per move clock (I DO like that time control) and neither one of us were ever in any kind of time trouble.

And the adventure continues.
