Before Mice


You were piled with the other things no one might want
And I didn't want you either.
But you made me think
About a time before mice
When we actually had to talk to people
When we wanted to talk to people
And we waited more than seconds for a letter's arrival.
I'm not saying I wish for that back,
Or that it's right or it's wrong,
But you made me think.
So I took your picture, and left you there for no one.
And I still wonder what happened to your D.

As easy and convenient as email is, it really is fun to get a real letter every now and then :)

Can I tell you how long it took me to get the title?!

I'm blonde. And pregnant. Not a great combo right now.

I think the bottom photo should be framed somewhere but that's just me.

Oh no, poor letter D - where did it go!?? I barely remember the typewriter days, but I did use one a long, long time ago when I was younger. It was so fun, until your fingers slipped between two keys and got jammed, lol.
