Did you get anything good in snail mail today?

When my grandmother was alive she lived for waiting for the mail carrier to bring her letters. She was alone and that was what she wanted. Well of course visitors too. I try to write someone, anyone just to let them know someone is thinking about them. I have written to former teachers, friends, neighbor's and cousin's i never see. if once a month or week we all did this, we would make some people very happy. It seems with internet people aren't writting much. I tell my kids, I count my friends by how many Christmas cards I get. lol

  • do not know yet, my oldest checks the mailbox because it comes right before she gets off the bus and she says it makes her feel good to deliver it lol. I wish there was a huge check coming in though lol.

  • I personally think with MySpace, FaceBook, and so forth people are lacking in that aspect of their lives... those types of relationships are either cold or end up with dynamics that are not too pleasurable to me... JMHO!!!

    I prefer face to face relationships, letters sent and given because they have a more personal touch, and phone calls! Those teach us how to interact with others a lot better than the other ways... Not against social networking (Obviously since I am on CM) but it should be all we have in life

  • I rely so heavily on email and FB I rarely send personal snail mail anymore with the exception of thank-you notes. It still seems tacky to me to email them.

  • My mailman has not been here yet, but I hope he brings me some 'good stuff' in the mail today! I am waiting on a book order to arrive. I have a great mailman, when he sees that my monthly books have arrived he will make it a point to stop at my house first to drop them off and then go on to start the route. Usually I get bills, junk mail, netflix and my 2 food magazines.

  • No mail yet today. I can guess that there will be a couple of reply cards for my son's bar mitzvah, a gift or 2 for him and maybe something from Netflix.
