Do you get mail?..you know the regular kind..cards, letters, bills?
Do you have an address book with all your friends/family addresses and phone numbers?
The only kind of mail we receive it seems is either bank statements, junk mail or a celebratory card..gone are the days of getting ‘mail’ on a regular basis..
All our bills are received ‘on line’..and the payments are made the same way..gone is the task writing cheques and sending the statement and the payment in the mail..
When Doug and I were dating I use to mail him cards and letters..sure that was a long time ago…
It seems today, kids use text messaging, face book, emails or blackberry messenger to contact their friends..
Now with all social media there seems to be no reason to send someone a letter in the mail..
To take the time to put pen to paper is just a lost art..
Is the fine art of nice handwriting gone?..my handwriting has suffered…
using a dictionary?..not a chance..we don’t even own one..
now there are computer keyboards and spell check…
The only time I use the postal service is to mail a birthday or anniversary card..or Christmas cards..
Today I spent the morning filling out our passport renewal forms..I started out doing it by hand..then I didn’t like my handwriting so I switched to filling them out on the computer..
So I had to ‘face book’ my other friend and get her address and phone number..
I really think I need to update my ‘address book’…or maybe just send an email?..that seems to be the quicker way to communicate?
Now the big question is?..do I use the ‘snail mail’ to send off our passport renewals or should I go to the office in Vancouver and hand deliver them?..
but first we need to get those ‘dreaded passport photos’ done..
