I remember doing this in grade school......over and over.
My writing was very neat in those days.

Now? Not so much. I just finished paying bills.
As I wrote each check, I started thinking about how lousy my penmanship has become!
It's rather ironic that I can "write" very neatly with a paint brush, but can't with a pencil or pen!
I suspect the difference is that when I'm painting letters with a brush, I take my time.
But with a pen, my hand seems to think it's in some kind of race.

I think it's high time I started practicing penmanship again.
Not that I'm actually going to do that, I just think it's high time that I should!

And now, it's time to (gulp) admit that I'm jealous of my sister's penmanship.
Always neat. Always pretty. Always legible.
Enjoy this moment Jo - there may not be anymore public admissions any time soon!
All my love ~ your sloppy writing sister ~ Barb

Maybe you could write better if you weren't left-handed! haha Now I'll just sit here and bask in the warm glow of your complement.

Enjoy your warm glow!
