I do have electricity, water, and mail service at my home; one now becomes very thankful and grateful for the smallest things. I still do not have internet at my home; I am at a library today using their internet.

On August 28, 2021, I had to evacuate from Hurricane Ida; I finally have internet where I evacuated. My home is okay, I have trees down all over my yard. I will not have electricity until at least September 29, 2021. I am going back to my home to begin clean up tomorrow. I will not have electricity and internet for at least a month because the hurricane has torn up my area badly. I am hearing it looks like a war zone. We also will not have mail delivery for at least a month, so I am marking myself inactive for now. Prayers for Southeast Louisiana as we have a long, slow road to recovery.
Cindy Hello from "Down the bayou"! I have always collected postcards and mailed them to my family and friends. When my brothers introduced me to Post-crossing, I became instantly hooked. I had to become inactive for awhile due to my husband becoming ill. In Aug. 2015, he complained of headaches; after a month of doing this and that, it was discovered that he had a brain tumor. He passed away on February 17, 2017. I like to focus on the good moments that we shared; he was a wonderful, talented man who is dearly missed. My favorite quote at the moment is "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened." We shared 33 years together!
Moving forward, I want to send at least one postcard to the 214 countries involved in post-crossing. So far, I have sent postcards to 80 countries. How many countries have you sent postcards to? I do try to select the best postcard from my collection to send. It is so wonderful when someone is thankful & grateful for the postcard that I sent. To know that I made a stranger's day by just sending a postcard which is something that I love to do. I may send your postcard in an envelope because I like to send more than one stamp; I think that I enjoy selecting stamps as much as the postcards.
The following is suggestions of what kind of postcards I would like to receive.
Nature - Mountains, Forests, Waterfalls, Lakes, Beaches...
Sunrises, Sunsets, Rainbows
Ducks- my husband's hobby was duck carving
If at all possible, I would prefer not to receive any ad or homemade cards.
German Post Crosser- I was born at the Landstuhl Air Force Base; my dad was in the USA Air Force at that time, so any postcard on that area (base and city) would be fascinating!
Don't know what to write on the postcard; What are your favorites smells? I like:
The smell of just cut grass
The smell of coffee even though I don't drink coffee (tea drinker)
The smell of onions caramelizing in a roux
The smell of baking bread, chocolate chip cookies, pies.
