Postcards

I can’t believe I haven’t blogged this yet:

I have long been in the habit of sending postcards to my nephew, Alex, when I travel.  When he was very small, it was mostly an excuse to send him snail mail of his very own.  Like on Blue’s Clues.  Later, I decided that it might be a way to spark an interest in geography.  And finally, I wanted him to remember my existence when I am on the road a lot and not seeing him.  These days, the postcards include his sisters.

A couple of weeks ago, Alex and his family went on a road trip to Hershey, PA.  The first stop was in Ohio, and I received this:

It says, “Dear Aunt Anne, We liked the bust of Walter Payton.  See you soon.  Alex”

People, this is the best piece of mail I have ever received.
