I thought I would share a funny tidbit from my childhood. We (meaning my brothers and I) had a Great Aunt Lillian, who was an old spinster school teacher. I always thought she was rather mean. She once told me a story about how a long time ago a young man had asked her to marry him, but she turned him down because he was too short. Whew, lucky guy, he dodged a bullet that day. lol
Anyway, my story is that my parents used to make us write letters to her, when we were kids.
