radellaf: Haven't written it wrong yet. That won't last the month. At least the rubber date stamper never forgets. Jan 2, 2022 23:36:08 GMT
penguy: Must get to writing letters. I was gone two weeks and had the mail held, about 10 letters came in. Now add those to those I already have to answer and I'm going to be busy. Had a good year letter writing wise, wrote about 230 letters. Jan 7, 2022 19:26:12 GMT
Mia: Proboards was offline for a little while (don't know how long). Jan 8, 2022 13:00:43 GMT
Steph Walford: Anyone get busy writing and then realise you are writing what you are hearing on tv/online or that just me? Jan 8, 2022 20:20:25 GMT
Mia: been there, done that Jan 8, 2022 22:39:36 GMT

alcyone: Don't you have sufficient stamps to last until the heat death of the universe? Jan 15, 2022 22:52:33 GMT
radellaf: I have enough ink at least until the sun swallows the inner planets, and maybe enough stamps to send domestic letters that would use all that ink (in a music nib). I would order more but not crazy about the tiger. 4c blueberries are cool. Jan 16, 2022 2:57:45 GMT
stompie: Just finished another 3 nightshifts Jan 16, 2022 8:02:59 GMT
