|Ron (me) - 1957 - "pen pal" picture|
Regular readers of this blog know that I LIKE to write. Do you know how long I've been writing? A LONG TIME!
When I was in high school I had fifty-seven pen pals around the country and the world. Some of my friends and relatives thought I was a loser because I had pen pals and no friends. They were wrong. I had friends but I also had a curiosity about other people who lived in other parts of the country and world. Not much has changed has it? Now I have a blog that I write and make friends with in other parts of the country.
Recently my friend Larry sent me a copy of a letter that I wrote to him. I wrote this letter September 12, 1957, 57 years ago! That's older than most of the readers of this blog! Wow, I am one OLD DUDE. I wrote to Larry about my new pen pal named "Chico" in Los Angeles, California. I remember nothing about "Chico" or this letter now but I do remember I had a load of pen pals. I always looked forward to checking my Post Office box 212 to see how many letters were there from my pen pal friends.
That letter is below. Read it and tell me if my style has changed. Do you think?
