February Photo Challenge-Handwriting

When I was around 6 or 7 I wrote my name in every book I owned. With a trusty purple marker. My writing has changed since those days. As has my last name.


This was my Mother’s writing. My cursive used to look a great deal like hers, when I actually wrote in cursive. She would always have me write my own excused note to school, and sign it. She always said it looked pretty good!


My Mother’s writing was very similar to her Mother’s writing. Grandma Georgia’s h’s were different. My Grandma was big on using the full name, and the Miss. That Lady and the Tramp book was one of my favorites.


I don’t write true cursive anymore. It is more of a print/handwriting hybrid. This recipe for the last week mentioned pumpkin cookies, looks to be all printed.



The only regular writing I do anymore is my BSF lesson. Always done in pencil, with things added from leaders meeting in pen. 90% hybrid.


Have a neatly written Monday.

    Who would think a person could write so well about handwriting? My penmanship is pretty darn good for a lefty — even though the nuns tried really hard to put that pencil in the other hand!

    How interesting! I think the change in writing is a sign of the times…we rush ourselves more nowadays. I love to consciously think about my writing and try to make it be somewhat attractive.

    The only C I ever got in school was in handwriting. I type everything now. My son is worse than I am so he is really going to have a time although I don’t think they have a handwriting class any more
