Received from @LaurenceB #… a vintage Brentwood Apartments & Hotel postcard. It shows 4 classic cars in front of a hotel with a family posing in a convertible. Palm trees are in the background. Love it! I love classic cars and it reminds me of an old picture of my mom standing in front of a hotel where she worked. It also reminds me of the first time I ever saw palm trees as a kid. I was just mesmerized by them (I grew up surrounded by pine trees, lol). Anyway, I hope you have a great vacation! Thanks so much!

Received from @Beachyblonde #13 a Shark Teeth postcard. Very cool! Thank you! I had no idea there was a “Snaggletooth” shark, lol. I’ve got to look it up. The megaladon tooth is really cool! Happy birthday and enjoy your vacation!

#8 March, received yesterday:

From #7 @oniisen a postcard with not one, but three(!!) streetlamps of different types. Indeed, that 20c stamp does look a bit familiar! I wonder where I saw it before.

From #11 @LaurenceB a stamp postcard from New Zealand, beautifully decorated message-side with many excellent stamps!
