Little Old Woman - Fuddy duddy sends a thank you note

Donna Sears

Lucky me! Today I’m settling down in my cozy chair, a new ballpoint pen in hand, ready to write a thank-you note, or perhaps a love letter, to each of you as you hold your newspaper. Just knowing you are out there, sharing this moment, fills me with happiness and gratitude. You constantly amaze me with your kindness, and you enrich my life.

Let me give you recent examples of what I’m talking about. This week I received a cheerful and newsy letter from a long-time reader who moved to Wisconsin several years ago to be closer to her family. Someone in this area sent her a column, which gave her the urge to keep in touch. Hand written letters in my mailbox are a rarity in this age of technology and are to be treasured. Thank you, Lucille.
