I’ve come to believe that, in my family, there isn’t much difference between now and 50 years ago. Before my Grandma passed away, she found a box of letters she and my Grandfather had written over many years. These letters dated back at least 60 if not more years! She compiled them into a three ring notebook. She gave all the members of our family a copy. When I got it, I thumbed through it and thought “Oh, cool” and put it back into my closet.
The other day, I came across it and started reading. What was I holding? but a BLOG, just without the electronic part – or the web part. The letters, some 5-8 pages long, sent to many people (typed with CARBON PAPER) and distributed. I have found reading some of them to be very entertaining and enlightening as my Grandfather spoke about teaching my dad and uncles lessons. The challenges were very much the same I experience daily. I am going to go out on a limb and say each and every one of my paternal aunts and uncles probably have a story in there they don’t want told! 🙂
I learned a lot about the weekend my Mom met my Grandparents. Sounds like a fun one! It’s not a party until a car is upside down … and it’s not your car!
I’ve not posted much, for a lot of reasons but I’ve also come to the conclusion (again) that I do enjoy blogging and I think I am going to start sharing more here. I hope you have a great weekend!
