The Friendship Maintenance Society was founded by two
friends separated by 3000 miles of continent longing to hear about
everything going on in the other's mind, or at least what sort of
pastry they'd share if they were together. They're dedicated to
helping long-distance friends stay in touch the tried-and-true way:
pen, paper, stamp.
