  2. I used to do a lot of snail mailing penpalling. At one point I wrote to 100 people in 20 countries...but I had to give it up due to postage becoming so expensive. I did enjoy it. I got all my friends from Interpals at the time. I doubt I would have time for that now!

  4. Oh neat! Hope you end up finding the trilogy good.

    Cute Darcy and Lizzy dolls. I like the idea that pen-palling is still going on. I write letters with an old college roommate and it's fun.
