Connie February, 8 1978.
"My mom Connie was in her mid-twenties when she and her friends saw an ad in the paper for people wanting penpals.
She sent letters back and forth with this man who, turns out, was writing her from jail for a non-violent offense of some sort.
He asked her to send a photo of herself and so she got all dolled up and had my grandpa take a polaroid of her (not smiling bc she said she felt weird posing like that for the camera.)
...and afterwards felt it was not appropriate to send, so she kept it all these years."
