Every day we don't get mail is kind of a sad day for me. I am somewhat obsessed with mail. I always have been. It gave me no greater joy as a child to go out and "get the mail." I'm not sure what I was looking for in that bundle of ads and bills--perhaps a letter from a distant friend or relative or later... a college acceptance letter. Back in my day kids, if you had a friend who lived far away--like someone you met at camp or on a vacation... you had to write letters to keep in touch or make phone calls... Of course phone calls could get pricey so letter writing was the thing. I wonder if kids these days still pass notes... or is it all about the texting?
I ran across this pic yesterday. Too funny--I'm the round face girl on the left. Time flies when you are growing old.
