    Enjoy Mailing Off A Letter

    I used to frequent the post office to check out the stamps (I'm not a stamp collector nor are the people I write to but I enjoy selecting stamps and not just sticking any old stamp.). I used to have lots of things to write to my friends about. These are people I ...
