Towana! You surprised me with a postcard! Yay! Thank you so much!

It is of the Heublein Tower in CT which I had never heard of until now and it is so great to learn more about it. I am so glad you had a great time and I thank you so much for sharing part of your journey with me! Looks beautiful!

Connie B. (conniej76sent me a most beautiful Balloon card from her town! Connie this is such a lovely card.. I love seeing all the balloons light up at night. I have never heard of balloons racing before but it sounds like a lot of fun and I am so glad you get to see them! What a fun thing to have nearby to you! Thank you so much!

 

Amy T. (amistadsent me Manatees!! This is such a gorgeous underwater card. I would just love to visit them and watch them eat lettuce. I would spend the entire day with them :-)  And I would of course want to feed them the lettuce! Thank you for sending me some friends to look at, these creatures make me smile.

Is there anyone who is participating in the postcard exchange that is into history?  If so, send me a PM telling me that you like history.  Thanks, Vicky

Thank you to all who sent postcards:  Towana, Katherine, Vicky (two postcards!), and my swap partner Sandi, who sent an envelope full of postcards for my enjoyment.

Katherine and Vicky, my dad's family is from Virginia and West Virginia so I have always loved and felt a kinship with those states.  They are so incredibly beautiful!  I actually got to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway two years ago, and it was a thrill to do so.

Towana, I have never been to Connecticut, but hope to go someday.  And I have been to Chicago many times!  smiley

Sandi, I especially loved the smiley face postcard and the postcard of Ventura.  I've never been there, but have been to Los Angeles and Palm Springs.  My ex-husband lives in Cathedral City!  Your postcard is in the mail to you.

I know I am really late with my thank yous, and I apologize.  It has been so crazy here...  Thank you all for being so patient with me, and for being such great people.  It is always such a pleasure to pop into PBS, even if I can only stay for a few minutes!
