Life Story -- Mail -- Grandma Anna

Written Saturday, March 8, 2008.

What does the mail mean to you?  Are you a good letter writer?  Who have you corresponded with?

"I love to get mail.  Good mail, that is.  Not all the junk mail that comes every day.  I thihjnk I'm a good letter writer to some people.  I write to our twin grandsons who are on missions every week.  I write to my 93 year old aunt Marjorie Berry as often as I can.  I have a good friend Mable Hoffman in Mississippi that I write to quite often and I used to write to a nurse in Tucson who took such good care of our Matthew, but we have kind of forgotten each other, but I think I will start writing again and keep that friendship going."
Marjorie Berry about 1937

Life Story -- Bicycling -- Grandma Anna

Written March 7, 2008

Do you have a bicycle?  What is it like?

"I did have a bicycle, but it was given away.  Now I have a stationary bike.  I haven't been on it for quite a while but I plan on starting exercising soon.  At least that's my plan.  The bike tells how fast you are going and how far which is a help."
