I really do miss having penpals. I still have quite a supply of stationery. I stocked up when I was in charge of the card and stationery department in a bookstore for nine years and had an employee discount. I could choose from many different suppliers. I found that what I liked, many others did, too. I also inherited all Mom’s stationery she didn’t finish using.

I remember how much fun it was to decorate the letters and envelopes. I still decorate envelopes when I send anything personal.
