When I was 11, the high school made it possible for kids to sign up to have a penpal. I was in jr high at the time, but my sisters in high school put my name on the list. Once it all get set up, I had a penpal from England. One of her first letters she wrote me included post cards of Prince Charles and Lady Diana when they were dating. That was 1980. We exchanged letters for about 7 years. When we both finished high school, we lost touch. I tried finding her on the internet a few years ago, but no luck. It would be really cool to be able to talk to her one day again.
