Having a great time. Wish you were here!
On the top shelf of a closet at home are several dusty shoeboxes full of old postcards. Three thousand or more I imagine. My father collected them as a boy. There are cards from every U.S. state, neatly sorted. There is also a bundle from other countries. Some are addressed with cancelled one-cent stamps and some are fresh-off-the-rack 1930s new.
I don’t collect postcards, but I do like sending and receiving them. I discover postcards I’ve sent tacked to colleagues’, friends’ and family’s bulletin boards and refrigerators. They like receiving postcards, too. Smart phone pics are not the same. Appreciated, just not the same.
Like most travelers, I also like to take photos and share them. The beauty of a blog is sharing my pics and stories with friends and family and not boring them if they aren’t interested.
So, ocassionally, I’ll add postcard posts. The digital postcards are sized like the printed ones.
Every now and then, dust off your computer and flip through them. Enjoy!
