My Grandma & I Have A Story.

Postcards, mail…  I hear excuses against this beautiful mode of communication, more than about folks participating.  “Stamps cost too much”.  “We’ll be home by the time it arrives”, is the attitude on vacation.  When I was young, I got it:  the power … Continue reading
