I mentioned before that I joined Felicia Sullivan's pen pal project, which is a great idea. I forgot to mention that earlier this week, I received confirmation from our secretary that my first letter to Theresa has been sent through the Peruvian postal system! It was sent on 4/11/07, but who knows when she is going to get it -- the USPS has its problems, but compared to postal services in South America, it is perfect.
I hope that this inspires you to get out your pens and pretty paper and start writing again! Keep my Dad, the happy mailman, in business!
