Join the fun!

I have a variety of postcards to share with you today. And for those of you who enjoy this blog but who do not swap postcards yourself, go to to get in on the fun. Another good site for swapping postcards and many other items is You too can find delightful surprises in your mailbox!

Here's another map card to add to my collection. This one is from sunny Portugal.

From Taiwan I received this scene from the 2011 movie "Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale".

This reproduction of an old cover of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit" came from The Netherlands.

I love old travel posters. This one reminds us to always wear white gloves when traveling.

The Cathedral of the Resurrection in St. Petersburg, Russia, otherwise known as "church in a jar".

I'm not sure what is happening in this Japanese painting. It looks like one of the Scrabble players took entirely too long to make a move and sent the other two players completely over the edge.

I want to end today on a calmer note. The translation of the writing on this card is "Everything will be all right", and if the picture doesn't give you the warm fuzzies then I give up.

Outdoors with imaginary friends

Spring has come to Oregon and Salem is filled with large, colorful azaleas, such as these from our back yard.

It's far too nice to spend the day inside, so I think I'll call a friend and go for a nice long walk.

I'll pick some flowers while I'm out.

I might have to stop for a rest in the shade once in a while.

If I get really tired, I'll just ride instead of walking.

I always stop in the park to feed all my bird friends.

OK, I'm off for my nature walk. I tried to talk my cats into accompanying me, but as usual they would rather stay home and do yoga.
