So much to write about today!

Those letters that my grandparents exchanged 70 years ago....they offer not only a peek at their love for one another but also a glimpse of everyday life in 1939-1940.

Granny told Grandpa about who came to visit, which of her sisters she was fighting with, what chores she was doing, what clothes she was making, the types of entertainment they found interesting, etc. Grandpa wrote back, telling of visiting his cousin, looking for work, riding in rodeos and more.

In today's world, more specifically today and tomorrow in the United States, we have so much to write about! Write a letter to someone you know, talking about your thoughts on the political events of the day, offer up your feelings about the economy, discuss your favorite movie. Make it specific! Tell all about your life, your job, your home, your fun.

Then, put the letter in the mail! Maybe you'll get an answer in the return mail!
