When I was stationed overseas oh so many times, I’d drop a letter in the mail to my sister or my Nana. My entire extended family knew what was going on pretty quickly…it’d go “viral”.
Today, all it takes is a phonecall, and the same thing happens. My family up North knows what’s up with me and mine. Facebook was for me more trouble than it’s worth.
Plus I love the look on people’s faces when I tell them. Priceless.
