Phone call or email I can see. Written letter not so much. I think that is a dying thing anyway.

I do have the quills. And the little pots of ink. (Renaissance fairs rock.) They get put in the U.S. mail where they probably jam up the automated equipment. My little protest against the federal government.

If you really want to jam things up, use square cards/envelopes. Just don't count on anyone receiving them. They may. They may not.

Fabulous. Everyone must think I'm the rude person who doesn't say thank-you, lol.

Maybe so among younger kids. But, a formal invitation should be answered with a formal thank you. Email thank yous are not appropriate for weddings.

Didn't her mother teach her anything about the social graces?
You must have missed the "show up, shut up and wear beige" thread that will go down in history around here..... shame that it was removed.

Mattie, I wish I could buy you a drink.

Oh no, I'm well aware of it.... ate it up like everyone else. I know what Mattie is dealing with. I wouldn't wish her DIL on my worst enemy.

I always send a thank you card in the mail. I keep greeting cards on hand so if I get an unexpected gift or nice gesture from someone I have one to send. I feel it takes just a minute to do and shows appreciation which in turn makes the other person feel nice.
