  1. Yes, this is true. But now I need my dictionary for spell check! No autocorrect.

    • @Bill – right now my sister in law came to the table with a huge ‘petit Robert’, THE French dictionary. By the time she shoved it in place I had looked up the word on the iPad and told her. It was ‘courrier’… (mail) and as a French mother tongue person she wasn’t sure if the word ha one or two r…. So yes, we’re all guilty of that one.

  3. Even more human if you use a fountain pen . . it freaks out those too young to have used or even seen them.

    • @RAY; You just tempt me to search for my fancy fountain pen….. I used to love writing with it but then I found it difficult to find the particular purple ink cartridges I liked to employ. Last week I found a whole pack of said cartridges but have yet to unearth the fountain pen. Life is providing but disorder is preventing me of ‘living it all to the full’…. 😉

      • Good luck in the search. I have around two dozen pens and only 3-4 use cartridges, the others use a converter or self -enclosed filling system. I like different color inks and Levenger’s Amethyst is one of my go-tos. I hope you find it 🖌

    So do I….Sometimes I’ve got this vision: Me, in twenty years from now, sitting in a café, writing into my daily journal. And on the table next to me there’s a little child with its mother whispering into her ear: “Mom, what is this old woman doing?” And Mom will answer: “Kid, it’s called ‘writing’. They used to do it in those old days…”
