I spent the day driving to San Francisco, conducting an interview, and driving home again, so there was only time to write one letter.
This is to another soldier in Afghanistan, not one I've "adopted," but one who just needs to hear cheery things from home. His wife is pregnant and so I sent him one of my parenting stories from my diary of the years when the kids were little. I hope it doesn't terrify him!
There were two penpal letters in the incoming mail. One was from a penpal in Ohio and one was from a penpal in England.
But the best thing about the envelope from England were the stamps.
This envelope is definitely a keeper!
