Monday's Postcard: Fort Wayne, IN
This is downtown Fort Wayne, IN. This postcard is from my Grandmother Arkebauer, written to me in 1982 when I was away at an academic summer camp. My Grandmother Arkebauer lived in Fort Wayne and I didn't get to see her as often as my Granny Knox who lived in North Carolina where I grew up. I was at the Governor's School of North Carolina for the summer and it was a great honor and opportunity, but when you are 15 years old, you aren't really thinking about your future, you are more likely thinking about the cute boys that you can meet at Governor's School. I attended at a small college in the middle of nowhere (Laurinburg) NC. And it was very exciting to receive mail. Obviously, I kept this postcard from that time in my life. I must say that looking back, even though I was only interested in meeting boys, Governor's School did a lot to prepare me for college and I made a lot of great friends there.
