Pen Pals for 72 Years

Pen Pals for 72 years!

I loved this story from the U.K. about two ladies who started as pen pals when they were 12 years old – one in England, one in Ohio and wrote every couple of weeks for 45 years before they actually met  - and continue to write to each other consistently now that they’re in their 70s!

Do you have a pen pal – or did you when you were younger?  I did.  Actually I had several. I can remember writing pages and pages to one friend in Canada each time and I had international pen pals as well.

The internet has made pen-pal writing a thing of the past, I’m afraid.  Let me know if you still take pen to paper and write to someone. I’d love to hear!
