Looking at the mailboxes on sale at MailboxIxchange.com, reminded me of that time in my life when I exchanged letters with my friends thru what we now call "snail mail".
The postman would shout, "hey pretty, you have letters!" and I would just laugh and say "Thank you, please put them on our mailbox".
That was more than ten years ago.
Currently, I have email addresses where I receive about 20 to 50 messages daily, including the unwanted spams.
I have very few letters these days. I have some bills (telephone, DSL, electricity), bank statements, etc. which do not count as letters anyway. Yet, there's always excitement when I flip open our residential mailbox and I see a letter addressed to me written with a familiar handwriting.
Along with the letters were stickers, scented stationeries, hand-made cards, perfumed enveloped - sealed with kisses. I just miss those times. It's different now because of email and text messaging - but I still love sending and receiving those old-fashioned letters.
