When I grew up, I must admit that I didn’t have any choice about writing thank you notes. For my parents, thank you notes represented good manners, and was a gracious way of expressing gratitude for gifts received.
Today, however, thank you notes seem to be moving in the same direction as dinosaurs. Perhaps, this is because of technological changes in our society. Nevertheless, I guess I do believe that thank you notes are a very effective way to connect with people in today's technology filled world. For me good manners never go out of style, and not writing and not acknowledging a gift is not acceptable. What do you think?
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
