I got some Royal Mail, it took six weeks to get here, it must have been on one of those tall ships or a row boat.
Alan collects postcards, earlier in the summer I found a postcard of Blackpool at a Flea Market and sent to off to him. He in turn sent me a postcard from Pittsburg, PA of the Machesney Building that is now called The Benedum-Trees Building that was built in 1905. The postcard has horses and carriages going up and down the street. Doesn’t Alan have wonderful penmanship? Thanks Alan! He writes the blog News From Nowhere.
A few days later I got a box in the mail. Johnson Cottonwood Bark from Colorado, from Linda. She lost a huge branch in her yard and when I asked her about the bark she mailed me not one box but two. Thanks Linda! I will carve something for her…eventually. Linda writes the blog Life on a Colorado Farm.
One of the great things about blogging is that I have wonderful friends from all corners of the world.
It is always great to get something in the mail other than bills:)
