Oline Stehr in little Addy, Wash., reports that there are young people still corresponding the old-fashioned way.
“My 13-year-old daughter and her two friends (one in Colville, one in Kettle Falls) love to keep in touch through snail mail,” wrote Stehr. “They say there is nothing better than getting a surprise letter in the mailbox.”
The friends also use e-mail. And they see one another fairly often.
“But the letter writing continues weekly,” said Stehr.
Her daughter, GavRayell, also keeps in touch with grandparents by writing real letters. She prefers sharing traditional photographs with them to e-mailing pictures.
“She wants them to hold the real thing in their hands, not just look at them on the computer screen.”
