    Tell him you’re older than internet. That will blow his mind forever.

    I wonder how long it takes to send a piece of snail mail form South Africa to the United States (though I know it depends which of the 50 states).

    50 years ago I recall my big Sis had to use “onion paper” (because it was lighter then regular paper) to write to her beau in the air force in Spain then by airmail.

    When you consider the price of a computer (or device) and internet access fees, snail mail is actually a bargain!

    As a child, I loved getting cards and letters (hand written of course) from my Grandmother whom I saw just once a year. Now that she’s dead, they are cherished keepsakes. Even if you kept some of the e-mails you’ve received, they wouldn’t have the same emotional connection or contain some of the sender’s personality like a handwritten letter does.

    To the door? How about a communal box a half mile away.

    That’s true.
    Hopefully Andy will keep this ‘letter’ as it’s called, forever.
    Not everyone in his age will be getting one.

    To a box on a stick at the edge of the yard. No door delivery except for packages too big for the box.

    Well, our drive is almost a tenth of a mile long. Can’t blame them for not delivering to the door, but hubby and the dog enjoy the walk each day.

    I still enjoy getting letters from friends and family. Only one cousin still writes letters, the reason being no computer in her home. I get to keep the letters and re read them anytime I want. My computer seems to do away with things after a while, especially saved e-mails. =(

    our postman stills walks his route since our mailbox is on the wall next to the front door.

    A teenager not knowing about postal delivery just isn’t credible. He must know those hundreds of pre-approved credit card offers didn’t arrive by email.

    As far as I’m concerned, the current internet didn’t get started until around 1996, but didn’t take off until 1998. I know it was around before then, but IMHO it was Napster and the proliferation of the “new” .mp3 audio compression format that is responsible for that “big bang” to get everyone online. That’s just my view on it. In any case, to me the internet is a teenager….and it scares me to death that the current level of human civilization relies on a technology not yet old enough to drink.

    Here in Canada our postal system has decided to end home delivery within 5 years. Enjoy it while you can.
