OK..I like my computer now!!!

Email working now!! Funny..once it affected computers at the email provider it got fixed quicker!!! (maybe not,but it sure seems that way!!)..when I called last night,the tech support person said it was affecting some of the computer there.....good!! Maybe thats why it's finally up and running properly!!! Funny..I never realized how much I rely on it! In a way,it's sad ..letter writing will become a thing of the past..it is already a lost art. My son and his friends text all the time..why,when the cell phone is there? Will these "kids"(he's almost 29!) miss out on writing a "love letter",something that can be wrapped with a bit of ribbon and treasured always by the one they love forever? After my father had died,and I was going through things,I found the letters they had written to each other when he was overseas in WWII...he had kept his tied with a white ribbon in the bottom of his Navy trunk,along with all the other letters he had gotten from his Mother.My mothers were in a box tied with pink ribbon.!These delicate letters,in 1940's airmail envelopes, were in perfect conditin. Have I read them..no.But,I haven't thrown them out either!

Hi Ann.
I wonder if you are not curious what is in the letters ??

Ann said...

yes.. I am!! I'm still trying to decide if I would be invaiding their privacy. My mother has been gone 12 years..my Dad 5...one of these days I just may ! I guess if I wasn't going to at some point I would have destroyed them. hugs!

I have to admit that I am a sucker for 'snail mail'. I do love email and my computer, But, I write lots of letters and I love when I get them too - because I hate to see it disappear.
Real mail - that you can Hold - is so much More meaningful.
Maybe that's why I alter all of those envelopes. I canNot toss them...
Xx,
A

I love letters too. My mom and Aunt were the ultimate letter writers. they wrote each other once a week from 1943 until my aunt died decades later. Reading a letter from her was just like sitting next to her and talking! xo

Oh, I would have to read and savor every word and probably bawl my eyes out. What a beautiful treasure you have from days gone by.

Ann said...

thanks Mina! I believe I saved them for a reason..someday I'm sure I will read them!! When I do,I'll post about it!! Hope your weekend has been great!! hugs.

Phivos...I always knew my parents had an unending love for each other..I knew my Mom was a romantic and I wasn't too surprised to find the letters she saved, but I was surprised to find my Dad had saved his! hugs!!
