I just thought I'd let you know where I got my love of postcards: My mom, June, is 95 years old this year. She's got dementia, but she still loves getting postcards in the mail. She's the one who got me started collecting postcards years ago. She worked for a doctor, and when his patients would send postcards to him when they were traveling, he would let her have them. She had a WONDERFUL collection of postcards.
This year she went in to assisted living. It has been hard for her to get used to it. I only get to see her every other month, but I write to her a couple of times a week, and send her postcards regularly!
I started sending her two or three of my postcards from PostCrossing every time I write a letter to her. I hear that she loves it and really looks forward to it. As much as I love getting postcards from all over, I think she enjoys it even more!! So thank you to all of you who send me a card. Your card is doing Double-Duty, and I understand the staff are also enjoying the cards, too.
Hi Everyone! I live on the West Coast of the USA, about 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean, in Brookings, Oregon.
We camp a lot in the summer, either in the giant redwoods or on the coast, or sometimes inland in the mountains of California and Oregon. I enjoy the desert in the winter, too.
Postcards I like include art of all kinds...
Paths in nice places
...but anything is wonderful! And I love funny cards and weird or strange things.
Oh, and pictures of... Cake!!!
And cupcakes, too. Yum.
And color! Lots and lots of color!!
Thanks. It'll be great to hear from you.
