    The Recession Is Costing Me My Snail Mail Pen Pals

    Pen Pals Not Key Pals...

    I love to write letters, I just wish I had a more interesting life to write about. My letters are full of hopes, dreams, well wishes and love, though.... My circle is welcome to send me their address anytime. :)
