“Thinking about you,” a poem . . .
I’m thinking of you again, hoping you’re OK,Knowing things might not be easier, with each passing day.
None-the-less, I juggle memories of days gone by,They come up over and over, and I really do try,To hope for the best; I smile as I do,Thinking and dreaming all about you.
As we get older, it is hard to hold on,But harder to let go; who wants to be gone?
Our lives are an array of many complexities,Of travels and tastes, of the birds and the bees.We hold on, it’s true, to the good and the bad.A menagerie of richness can oft make us glad.
So, I’m thinking about you and trying to be strong,Hoping we stick around and always get along.
The story starts with Pen Friend a long time ago between the two countries of the world
The Adventures of The Misfits
A long time ago, Betty read in a Classified Advertisement in an American Comic Book looking for a Pen Friend in Argentina.
Keep in mind in those days we’re before the Internet and it was deemed to be very secretive way of life. Betty applied and over a 12 month period Betty was meeting the Postmaster at her letterbox carrying a shoebox for hundreds of letters arriving weekly from America.
Betty was swamped with news from America, a country she knew nothing about. Most of the names were written down wrong.
Most were from young boys asking inappropriate things she knew nothing about, but being an innocent young girl she wrote back thanking kindly for curiosity.
As the years ticked past
Duplication was invented as a Social media. With the arrival of the computer only with floppy disks, Betty began creating floppy discs to create a multifaceted floppy disk she sold to her Penfriends that created friendships instantly by email instead.

Cyber grew up in a world-changing society. Remember this writing Cursor died out, lost where the skills and knowledge
