GUEST,Lin BS: Do you still write actual letters? (25) BS: Do you still write letters to anyone? 01 Jul 15

What with e-mails, texting, etc. I was curious how many of you still write (long hand) letters to anyone?
It seems like it has become a thing of the past in this ever changing technical world we live in. Everyone communicates by email or texting. Does anyone still write actual letters to friends, acquaintances, family members who you don't see very often anymore?
When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone?

Even actual phone calls to chat to friends seems to be a rare thing we do. This is something I miss that people used to do.
There are a few friends that don't live nearby that I enjoy talking to on the phone.

I don't text - never have if you can believe that! When I got a cell phone (it is just a cell phone only) not a Smart Phone, I called the company and told them I do not want to use the texting feature on my phone. I don't get charged for that as I don't use that feature even though it was available to use on this cell phone.

I use it strictly as a phone only which is ok with me - no texting.
It does not have internet, games, apps, etc.   So my bill is only about $33.00 a month.
I have my computer at home.

I do like to write letters to friends that I don't see or that live far away. I have a friend in Ireland and Switzerland and England that I write to several times a year. I am in USA.
We don't even email each other - we all write actual letters.
They are all in their mid to late 50's & 60's so writing letters is something they all grew up with.

I enjoy getting their letters. It is nice to see a hand-written letter arrive at my house from faraway friends.
I know we all have busy schedules and emails and texting seems to be the way most people prefer to communicate anymore but it is very nice to write and receive a letter like we used to (what seems like a long time ago now. :-)
