Do you remember the days when emails, faxes, cell phones, Twitter accounts, Facebook, and Skype were non-existent? There were no inexpensive long distance phone calls; in fact, they cost plenty. It was during this era that I met my future husband in South Africa. We spent 4 remarkable days together before he flew back to Alaska. For the next 11 months (bar 4 weeks when I was actually with him in Juneau), we wrote and wrote and wrote some more. I kept all my letters from him and he kept mine. This is the pile we shared, 31 years later, including the most exciting one of all: his marriage proposal! So, it’s a mail thing!
