Month of Letters, Day 28

Wow, the Month of Letters challenge is almost over for 2020! I meant to mail some actual penpal-type letters on Friday, February 28, but we had some drama at home concerning my son’s desperate rush to complete an English assignment that absolutely, positively had to get submitted online to the teacher — and that requiredContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 28”

Month of Letters, Day 27

Two outgoing letters today, the 27th day of February. So far I seem to have written to a lot more LetterMo participants than have written me back, so I’ll probably be inundated with replies these last few days of the month. To St. Petersburg, Russia, I sent a Postcrossing card that’s a reproduction of aContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 27”

Month of Letters, Day 26

Yesterday was Wednesday, February 26. As the Month of Letters winds down, I am still doing my best to mail something every day.

This is my second letter to her this month, and is in responseContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 26”

Month of Letters, Day 22 and Day 23

Just one letter mailed yesterday (Saturday, February 22) as part of the Month of Letters challenge. But I’m traveling, so at least I was able to send from a new spot, a box in a student dining hall at James Madison University, while waiting for my son’s turn to audition for All-State Orchestra. The letterContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 22 and Day 23”

Month of Letters, Day 21

Two letters went out today for the Month of Letters challenge: A long letter to a LetterMo correspondent in Florida, USA. This was the inaugural letter for a new fountain pen, which I like very much, but I realize the pen requires a smoother paper than the textured stationery I used. I hope it’s notContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 21”

Month of Letters, Day 20

Today, for the 20th day of February, I sent three pieces of mail for the Month of Letters challenge. All three were Postcrossing cards, two to Germany and one to the U.S. To Anklam, Germany, an atmospheric evening shot of Jackson Square in New Orleans. The Postcrosser there, a 28-year-old named Lydia, loves New OrleansContinue reading “Month of Letters, Day 20”
