Cat-scratching! Actually you, my cursive was ruined years ago as a result of gripping the steering wheel driving while Sandy told me how to drive and where to go go.

They don't teach kids cursive in school anymore.  What a shame.  I can still write in cursive but don't always follow the rules I was taught.

I never learned other than when I was 3 when my Mother taught me to read and write.  I added a "tail" to all my letters to make "joined up writing".   I skipped the grades that actually taught cursive and I've never once missed it.  My printing is legible and fast.  I am one of the ones glad to see that time in school is better spent on something other than what should now be considered a hobby like caligraphy!

Yes I can and I do it well. In 1966 I was very proud to win a cursive writing award. (Big deal right? haha) but I never forgot it and prided myself on it my entire life.

YES, daily.

My Mom taught me when I was about 6, to always write thank you notes for gifts and acts of kindness; it stuck. So for over 40 years I've always written personal notes in cursive. I have also always kept journals, and they are in cursive too, as it's easier & faster to write that way for me. Buffini & Company also teaches us to write personal notes and journal, so when I drift, my coach is on me about it.

I remeber it perfectly. I can write it...it's the other half that became the problem..no one could read it.

My real problem was when I got to the end, I could not recall my name, so it ended. With Love, SIS.
