I remember my grandma always having pen pals from the Pythiann Sisters Organization. It is a women’s organization that contributes to children’s homes and other charities. They would always be having “Secret Pals” or “Secret Santas”…or just plain ol’ pen pals.
It seems to be that blogging is like today’s generation of pen pals. We don’t really know each other well, but we have common interests and just like seeing what the other has to say. It is almost as good to see a comment back on a blog or myspace as it is to get a card in the mail.
It’s funny to think how technology affects our society, isn’t it? The idea of computers being used for communication is only about 15 years old. Can you imagine being a senior citizen and seeing things change from when there was no color t.v. to the technology we have today? Wow. A lady came to eat at our restaurant who just had her 101st birthday. What a trip that must be to have seen the entire past century. (And she still walks on her own with a cane!!!)
Thanks for being my virtual pen pals. Perhaps life has not changed so much in the past century after all. 🙂
