Comment: Thank you for hosting this fun, introspective swap and for your lovely letter! I smiled to see the blue Air Mail envelope and colorful postage, the sweet bear stationery, and your smiling handwriting; thank you for sharing your snail mail history with me! It made me wonder whatever happened to our childhood overseas penfriends. I also agree that letterwriting is preferable to talking :) I hope you have a good visit with your friends!

I received your profile surprise tag. Thank you, I really like the laces.

cmdunderground on Jan 25, 2014:

I did enjoy them. I ate them very slowly so they would last longer. They are all gone now :(

cmdunderground on Jan 13, 2014:

Received cheap postage tag today. Wow! They sure look different than anything we have here. Although we do have that brand name. Usually they just make easter candy though. I haven't been brave enough to try it yet. Well, it's half that, and half, if I like it and want more I'm screwed! Lol I can't run to the store and buy more. Haha. But I am very excited about it! Thank you SO much for sending them to me!!!! :)
