That certainly is a lush spot. I love the Dorothea Lange stamp and the 70’s that’s what I dressed like in the 70’s thanks for being so thoughtful.

#26 @sarahaeyo

Love the vintage theme of this card - I’m going to have to up my fashion game when mailing my postcrossings!
Thanks and Cheers

#30 @RockyRoadTrip


I have traveled the Blue Ridge I’m going to have to stop by this cabin. They are probably knitting outside because the cabin is stifling hot.
Thanks for the great card.

#19 @ellistrations


I just did a wedding cake this past weekend that was white and seafoam green!!
Thank you for the lovely card - Cheers.

#1 @Bakersmom sent a neat illustration of an African Swamphen. Neat story about your hungry dad, so sad, did he ever taste jackrabbit?

#26 @sarahaeyo sent the disappearing highway into the pine mountains. I have been called several times for jury duty, but only had to determine one case. Did you wake up on time?

#27 @tia272 sent the LP Coronado, California Sunset & Ship. Hope you enjoy your trip home and time the family. Boating out there is a fun time.

Thanks everyone for the great cards and messages!

I don’t think so not that day, it scarred him for life.

Hey John! @4kids2pay4 I didn’t send the disappearing road in the pines card. I think you tagged me by mistake and it should be @sarahaeyo.

@sarahgrab1 Yes, you are correct. I have edited it accordingly, thank you for the catch and notice. My apology to @sarahaeyo .

@YOIYUMTEWA I love vintage cards too. It’s funny they’re so small, like they didn’t have a lot to say. Ha ha!

@uconn This card is so spot on. Rosie LOVES to drink from the sink. My late cat, Mickie, loved to sleep in the sink. I think all cats just gravitate towards sinks.

@4kids2pay4 When I have difficult times, I like to go to a bar I don’t know and just sit & absorb the energy & conversations around me. I find people in general calming. When I’m alone, I can’t control my solo thoughts the way I can when they are people around.

Thank you all!!

Report #2 - June NARR

Slow week this one.
Only one card to report so far, but it’s more relevant than ever…

#27 @tia272: sent a political card expertly laying out the injustices in our system. And forget these guys, let’s just update this card and throw Trump on here, who took home classified documents (obviously to pawn off to his buddy Putin) and he still hasn’t faced justice… and Chelsea Manning spent 7 years in jail (sentenced to 35!) for exposing lies within the system! Just outrageous! Thanks!

All my outgoing June cards have been posted…

You are an industrious knitter!! I am working on a knit temperature blanket that threatens to take over my living room and assorted baby washcloths.
Thank you for the great card!!

#11 @sarahgrab1 sent a perfect card for me. A collection of pens! All displayed on a pegboard. Wish I had the determination to do so with mine, but I just keep them in a box, takes up less room. Although a past barber I went to for many years, had his displayed in this way around the shop. In July, we have another family cruise planned.

#19 @ellistrations sent another great card. Heron and egret, from Kyomjae hwachop [Album of painting by Kyomjae]. There are some of the older films I do like, have you seen Bringing Up Baby with Katherine Hepburn and Cary Grant? I do like to catch a TMC movie from time to time. A classic line from an oldie: “Was you ever bit by a dead bee?” :honeybee:

#24 @roxy sent a beautiful young lady with a bouquet of flowers. For my collection it does not qualify as a perfect stranger, (reference below), but this does align with a Canadian group called Trooper, who performed “Oh, Pretty Lady.” Still a great selection for me.

#30 @RockyRoadTrip sent a perfect stranger. A card that has a person with no indication of being able to identify the individual. This is in fact Elizabeth Avedon & Hogarth, Montauk 1988 Photographed by Priscilla Rattazzi. A great choice for my collection.

Gracious thanks to everyone for these spectacular cards!
