My friend Tyra Smith has a unique way of keeping in touch with her children during the electronic age. Her daughter Shyekara is a student at the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, and her son Blake is a student at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. And almost every day, when they check their mail they get a postcard from home. Tyra has taken pictures of family outings, special events, and general goings-on in their hometown – and created special postcards. So she jots a quick note, addresses them, slaps stamps on them, and off they go. And I’m told the kids can’t wait to check their mail.
That may change very soon – Tyra saw the blog post with our costumes from the Stampaway Preview Party, and sometime soon this image will be polluting Wisconsin mailboxes . . .
Kara and Blake have been friends since they were little. Poor kids may never speak to me again . . .
