A Plentiful Postcard Parade

World Postcard Day was October 1. Through Postcrossing, I sent out five postcards and received 8. Woot!


Interesting things I discovered from the postcards & postcard messages.

  1. Hope it didn’t leave a signature paw print!
    This is fascinating to me – the cards, not the cat – well she/he is too. As a stamp collector for almost 50 years, the stamps were of as much interest to me as the cards. And so many different stamps on the same mailpiece! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Cat. Rhyme, aka Smudge. Around here, horses keep their names, mostly. Cats & dogs develop nicknames.

    Stamps. The international stamps are so much more varied than the limited choice for US international mail.

    Postcrossing. One of those things that I like when I do it & not sure why I don’t do more. Good luck with it!
