Round Robin Update

Okay…looks like we have some readers are are all about some old fashioned letter writing!  Cool huh?   Okay here is the deal you HAVE TO SEND ME AN EMAIL if you want to participate.  No other way to sign up.  There is a page at the top that tells you how to do that.  Then I will get the ball rolling or the letter flying.

DO NOT sign up if you arent seriously going to do your part.  Which means you might have to send an envelope overseas, which means more postage yada yada yada.  Several of those that have expressed an interest live abroad and I think it is GREAT…a round the world round robin seems amazing to me!  I will get all the names together, and send you back an email with the particulars.  If we have more than 10 names then I will divide the list and will start two round robins.  How does this sound?  I will give you some time to think it over, and decide.  And will announce a deadline later.

Gee, who knew so many would be interested?  Snail mail…our grandkids might not even know what that is!!!


Something Old, Something Blue

I am going thru some things I found when we were cleaning out my mom’s house. I am bringing one box out at the time, looking thru it and packing it back. Of course taking out things I want to keep in my granny’s trunk in my living room.  I found several boxes of letters and keepsakes that were my Dad’s parents’ things.  These old ledger books are adorable:


They have some of my granddad’s writing where he was keeping up with gas milage for something. I also found a stack of old letters between my granddad and his cousins written back in the 20’s.  Do you realize our grandchildren won’t have any of these things to hold on to and cherish? What are they going to open up an old box one day and go “Awwwww…that’s my grandma’s old hard drive.”  We correspond almost completely by email these days.  No real letters, no real paper, pens, pencils…nothing like that.  I enjoyed so much seeing my granddad’s excellent penmanship.  Will future generations even learn to hold a pencil?  Or will they just start typing in kindergarten? Kind of made me a little sick to think about it.

On a bit of a lighter note…here is my new percolator, isnt it great?
