    I don’t feel quite so old now 😀

    Zip Codes! It’s so funny I’ve never given zip codes a second thought, they’ve been a part of my life since I was old enough to remember, but talk to my grandfather and he can remember all these things and tell me about them. Very Cool.

    And my grandmothers old letters from 1905…it’s all so vastly different from today. I LOVE history. Have I mentioned that!?!

    Wow…you and Jennifer were such world travelers at such a young age, while I was living in Ohio. Don’t I feel prosaic.
