I got a letter yesterday from my texan penpal and it was so cute I had to share. He taped little flowers on the letter even though he said it was contraband. Now, I don't know if it really is as the mailroom let it go through but it was just so very cute. He said it was worth getting in trouble for which I quickly wrote back and told him it was NOT, LOL. I've gotten dozens of roses that didn't mean as much to me as those little wilted taped flowers.
He also wrote that he used to have a dog with the exact same name as a dog I had. Now you might think that is not odd BUT the name is very unusual, not buddy or spot haha, too unusual not to mean something. No idea what yet but... I'm just VERY glad that I decided to pick this particular person to write to. He has very quickly become part of my life and I don't think I"m gonna give that up.
