I ran across this interesting story about a woman with a dream of sending out one million letters. Take a look, it may inspire you to write one or two yourself.
My wife began using fountain pens years ago, then abandoned them. I’m now cleaning them up and trying out new ones myself.
So, here I find myself writing more letters than Jefferson ever did. OK, well, maybe just the same number of letters that Jefferson did.
Regardless, some bait for this behavior has been dangled by our very own United States Postal Service for decades. Small wonder. They were basically the only game in town.
**** WARNING: PHILATELY AHEAD! ****
Not wishing to be “Booooooooooor-ing!”, I now purchase unused postage stamps online fer cheap. Yep, ya gotta lik em. Here we have a series of stamps I recently purchased.
You will note that in order to actually use the stamps, you must tear great works of art asunder. So instead, you become… a collector. Whoops.
Rest assured, I will be tearing these out and using them to send missives to my scattered friends. This last bastion of the Federal Government’s good deeds shall not go down without a fight. Shove yer Eeeeee-mail! ~TH~
