Card from Heather (BHM reply GMD) who thanks me for helping her go out and start sending some cards. Your welcome!
And with that we are off and running.. Run Forrest.. Run..
Ok so been a bit since last post (apologies), but been over loaded with family drama and Valentines Day.
Do you have any idea how hard it is to arrange having something placed on your wife's desk when you don't work at the same place anymore and she gets there at 7:30 in the morning.
I wish I had picks of what I did for her. What made this Valentines Day more fun was with all of the letter writing I have been doing, I was able to write all of her 20 valentines day cards in the same room with her back to me (our desks in the office are on opposite walls) and her non the wiser :)
So over the past weekend, I have been getting LOTS of postcards in reply to my mass mailing of the Black History Month postcard send. So fun, and now have a ton of letters to write.
So on with the show.
This one is from china. Now the card states this is for a road race, but for the life of me I don't see no road. Check out the stamps.
This is from Keith (Good Mail Day) and is a really nice cartoon. He draws them himself. Send him something and see what toon you get. Thanks Keith
On to Colorado, where men are men and the housing is cheap. (swap-bot). Ashcroft Ghost Town, Aspen, Colorado. Ashcroft ghost town can be found 10 miles south of Aspen. Founded in 1879 at an elevation of 9500 feet, Ashcroft was one of the more substantial communities in the area. Today the town offers a great example of the boom-and-bust cycles of the area's mining days. There are several buildings still standing today that are open for visitors.
It's a Twister, It's a Twister.. (Good Mail Day) Kimzoid sends this one in replay to BHM and warns of vacationing in a trailer park. Kansas tornado - The awesome power of nature is unleashed as a tornado cuts a 500-yard path of destruction through western Sumner County the evening of March 13, 1990. She tells me she saw one almost this big in Kansas while driving a truck.
From Maria (GMD), Greetings From Nebraska 1. Roundup time. 2. Small herds of Buffalo (pronounced BISON) may still be seen.
From Katie (GMD) in replay to BHM mailing loved the history card I sent and decided to send me one as well (thank you). Women Who Dared - Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962), American Humanitarian and diplomat. She was an activist first lady who made the position one of great, if unofficial, influence. As a delegate to the fledgling United Nations in 1948, she played a critical role in drafting and securing adoption of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights. (side note BHM was also a force in pushing black airmen - see Tuskegee).
Then there was this one from PostMuse: Near Lincoln Center, Manhattan, 2007
I don't know why, but all I could think of when I saw this card was "Villa Pianos" from the movie "that thing you do".
Now onto the winner of the week for most postcards sent from one person.
