Back in the day, us geezers actually used pens, pencils, paper, and ink... and still do! ya, believe that 💯
We still use Notebooks as a means to track our health/medication. Keep a list of family recipes. Write letters to friends and family. (Yes, I said write) Meaning putting a written letter in an envelope with a stamp and dropping it in the mail.
People still enjoy getting Christmas and Birthday cards. Sending a handwritten/signed card is personal and gives your loved one something to hold dear.
