My teacher told me that next year in school, we won't be able to e-mail from class anymore because they are getting rid of the Internet. Right now I'm visiting my grandma for the summer, and she has a computer. I don't have one at home, so how am I supposed to keep in touch with my e-Buddy if I can't do it at school? I love my e-Buddy and don't want to lose touch. I hope you have the answer!

Dear Sad in Santa Fe,
Cheer up! There are many ways that you can still be in contact with your e-Buddy. For starters, visit your local library. Libraries almost always have Internet access and will let you write to your buddy from there. See if any of your friends with a computer at home would let you come over and write to your buddy once a week. Who knows, they might have an e-Buddy as well and the two of you can make it a fun weekly get together. If you are a part of the Best Buddies chapter, talk to your peer buddy. They can help you find a way as well. Good luck!
