Oh, E-Mail Tribulations

Mon 3/10 Blog Prompt: You've got mail... (snail mail, email, you decide)

Who would have thought that in a mere 10 years or so e-mail would have pretty much taken the place of letters. I remember as a child writing thank you notes for gifts received, now you just pick up a phone or send an e-note.

Back when the boys were in boot, we had to write in order to correspond. They did not have access to telephones or computers. But as soon as they were out, it was back to e-mailing. And we still stay in contact that way as well as via our cell phones.

Yet, I would never have believed it if someone told me that I would have an e-mail account, even 10 or 15 years ago. And look, I have three. I wonder what the next 10 years will bring :)

Oh I know. Kids now don't even know what a Victrola is...let alone a record player! Now its music to go. But I admit I can't live without my e-mail!

Yup, some of my most treasured keepsakes are letters from my brother while he was in the Navy.

One of the neighbor kids is going off to the Marines after graduation. I plan to make a special effort to send him cards & letters in the age of email & text messaging.

I've missed, I've got to get back on the wagon.

I remember being in high school and writing to friends who went into the military. I used to live for getting a letter in the mail. Now I love to open my inbox and find email waiting for me.
