         Hi Gang:
                     
              Today I mailed a belated thank you card to my 94 years old Aunt who insist on  sending me $5 or $10 dollars in each of her letters she mails to me.  (It is cute that it still happens even though I am now 41 years old.)

             Inside the card I wrote a few lines about how my sisters and brother were doing and other newsworthy events.  I know this is expected of me in anything I send her.  She is of the world long ago where the only way to keep in touch was thru snail mail.  This is still the only way she communicates with all of us unless it be by telephone. (She still has a rotary dial in her kitchen.)  

             It occurred to me that now with emails, texting, blogs, threads, and such, maybe no one  writes plain old letters any more. I think it is a dying art.
             So, anyone still write letters? Real letters.(Not the once a year Christmas cards with all the Holiday-Updates.)          
                        Do you hand write them or type?

            I do. I love snail-mail cards and letters and postcards. Email is all very well and good, but there's something so satisfying about sending paper cards and letters with pretty stamps, not to mention the lift to the day one gets when the snail mail is something other than bills and flyers.  Wouldn't you agree?

                  Even birthday cards have become a thing of the past with the ability to wish someone a Happy Birthday in a hundred easier ways than to go out shopping for the card, sign it, address it, stamp it, mail it, and then hope it gets there on time.

                     Just being curious, if anyone still writes letters.

                                                                       PMM

        Unfortunately I do occasionally to my friends that are locked up.  If It wasn't for writing them (which I don't write enough) and mailing Christmas cards, I probably wouldn't ever need stamps.

        Good post Pammy, makes you think.  Now I need to go write a few letters.

        Every once in a while I do.  And something I learned from my mother, I write them and not send them.

        For some reason, my raw emotion comes out better when I sit down and write it with a pen and paper.

        If I have something heartfelt that I want to say, I generally do write it the old fashioned way.

        If I am mad at someone, and just want to get out all the negativity, and bottled feelings, then I usually just write the letter, and don't send it...like my mother said.
        It is definately best that way.  Once I made the mistake, and actually sent it

        Sure it does Satan!!!

                Another thing I enjoy about writing/recieving letters is the fact that I can save the letters.
                I have many letters from people that are now passed away and there is something about being able to run your finger over the signature of this person knowing they wrote it in their own hand.    Very precious indeed.

        Yes...still write letters.  In fact, I have an old 1943 typewriter I do letters with.  Folks seem to get a real kick out of it.

        I did the same with my ex-boyfriend! When the moment comes that we were not able to talk calmly or just couldn't hear each other I took a sheet of paper and wrote him a letter! Can't say that they were love letters!!! lol But I always gave them! And step by step we solved the problems...It's a really good way!

        I always wondered y my mother bought so many notebooks until 1 day she confessed 2 me that when she has an issue with a person that she feels like she cannot resolve face 2 face with them, she will write a letter that she hasn't any intensions on actually giving to a person. She said this helps her keep her sanity.

        Oooooooh & believe-u me.....If she actually DOES decide to give some1 1 of those letters, MEOUCH! I remember ,when I was a kid, coming home & seeing a note(or 2 or 3)placed somewhere throughout the house & thinking "OH NO, It's another 1 of MOM's DREADFUL NOTES!" & she still does suprise me with 1 every once in awhile. I got 1 about 3 weeks ago telling me how selfish I am.

        I am glad that it gives her mental relief 2 write out her feelings, but i'd rather her keep them 2 herself if she can't talk 2 me about them mono a mono. I believe that some of the times when she writes me a note, it is just a copout b'cuz she doesn't want 2 have 2 say it 2 my face. I have always considered myself 2 be a pretty straight forward person & 1 of my favorite sayings is "U know I wouldn't say anything about u that I haven't already said 2 your face." In fact...My best friend Rick often says 2 me"Damn Amie, u don't hold anything back!"

        Sorry I went on & on, but what else am I 2 do without any ND Bonuses???
