Thanks for sharing.  Finding a pen pal is hard enough.  Finding someone you can relate to and keep in touch is hard.

Reading WSJ is the last thing I would read, if anything at all.  I remember having a NYT and The Daily News coming every morning, now I donít even see them been sold at the markets.  Truly, has everything gone online?

And in the mailÖ. Mostly junks and bills.  The same goes for email.   Aiiiyaaa, what has this world come to!?

Charming. We are, for sure, a dying breed. Ever since I was 10, I loved going to the mailbox to check for mail. I wrote letters to all my school friends when we went from NH to Maine. Even in college, when I didnít have anyone to write to, I chose 10 service members fighting in Iraq and corresponded. I agree whole heartedly $.66 is a bargain. But donít get me started on package prices.  ;D

When I was ten (or a year or two younger), I had a French penpal, arranged through  my elementary school teacher, if I remember correctly. As I collected stamps at that time, it was great fun to receive a foreign stamp in the mail as well as a letter from someone so far away. I don't remember who stopped writing first, but it was fun while it lasted.

I love that @AnasaziWrites ! I too had a pen pal in France. Her name was Florian. It started in 10th grade French class. I continued French classes until my sophomore year in college. We continued to write until some time in the mid-90ís. We wrote for about 10 years. I wrote in French and she wrote in English. I wish I had maintained contact. I could never write in French now.  ;D
