when I was your age we hand wrote letters to each other when we wanted to talk
I am your age and I still write letters by hand. Who doesn't like to get real mail? Plus, a trip to the post office to buy stamps is a treat: we get to talk to people you would never meet otherwise if you weren't all standing in line.

It's funny how the entire planet that uses social media is driven by likes, subscribers, friend requests or any other gratifying doohickey. I say 86 the like feature and let's move on fer cryin out loud... like buttons are for posers and hipsters anyway.

What I like about the likes is that I'm notified when someone likes something, and, so, I am reminded to check threads I've forgotten about. It happens more often than you might think.

There is some kind of formatting error, here, but it is probably my fault and not the new update's.

The only mail I get other than Bill's are pipe related packages, holiday cards and stuff m'lady buys on Amazon. I do however like to go to the PO and I have a few books of Jimmy Hendricks and Johnny Cash stamps. Christmas time, I avoid.

Thanks for all you do keeping it going. Like everyone else I REALLY appreciate having a place to stop in, read a lot, post a little and just hang out. No clicks, no groupies, no fuss.
