Just a quick note today, as DMJ is nudging me to work on the website.
I've had a penfriend for about fourteen years now. She lives on the other side of the State, we've never met but write to each other two or three times a year. She has a computer but will not hook up to the internet as she thinks it's the work of the devil. The lady I walk with thinks it's evil too. Another friend of many years, a couple of years older than me, doesn't own a computer and is not the slightest bit interested in getting one.
A friend in Tasmania said that all she gets from her sister in Victoria is jokey emails, never a letter! So I wrote her a lengthy email the other day and she was thrilled. I should have printed it out, or written it long hand and posted it.
I've kept up the letter writing as I love receiving the reply. I must admit, though, that I've been typing them lately, in a nice font, Flair Roman, but I must get back to long hand and the fountain pen.
I used to wonder why anyone would want a web log, for all the world to see but, now that I'm blogging, I'm meeting so many clever, wonderful people from all over the world - my penpals, really.
Well, I'd better go and do the morning dishes, the washing, the vaccing, the dusting and then, maybe there'll be a little time left for the website before I prepare dinner!
