My letter from Agnetha

When I was 15 years old in early 1984 I decided to write a letter to Agnetha. It was the first time I had ever written to any of the members of ABBA. I decided I wanted to ask her a few questions so I typed them up on a piece of paper and mailed the letter. I wasn't sure if I would get a reply so I was very excited when I received a letter one day in June. Inside the envelope was an autographed postcard of Agnetha and a reply to my questions. I was in seventh heaven!
