Hey Phil - nope, you didn't post that Rocky made it there safe and sound... But, now I know he's arrived! Was he a bit on the pissed-off side from being cooped up during the delivery? Or, was he just dead as a doornail?

Oh, I do want to say this too...

THANK YOU PHIL (PARDUS)!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought a proper thank you was in order for starting this thread!! It has proved to be fun, entertaining, a great way for us to get to know each other a little better, and to see really cool pictures of countries other than our own. (And to think it all started with the request for one post card from Kuala Lumpur...)

To date, we have received 39 post cards!!! Two more and I will post the next adventure blog! I have decided to find a photo album to hold all the cards - after they have done a rotation on the fridge! ;) (Yes, it will be labeled "The Vicarious Travels of Operation Isa" and a great way to keep them safe from harm.)

Thank you again, Phil - and to everyone who has been so kind as to send us cards. The art of the hand-written word is NOT dead! Long live POST CARDS!!!!!!!!!!!

THANK YOU REECE AND ALLISON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The first is from Reece and he was in Memphis at the time. I won't say what the picture is...

[i]Hey Bubba! I don't know if I can figure this one out... You didn't give any clues... Okay, I'll take a wild guess and say GRACELAND!!!!!! Am I right? Yeah, I know I'm right - says so on the front! If you really gave up a beer for the cost of the card and postage - that was an expensive card and postage! Just kidding - from Graceland, it's probably a $5.00 post card!(ps: when mailing within the US, you don't need to write United States after the zip code. Our postman knows us personally.)

Well i know how stupid postmen are so i thought i better put US on it just so it didnt go via Uranus hahahahaha.

Thanks to Isa and Beerman again!!

I really like this postcard - its a mainly black and white shot of chicago theatre which has a big red sign saying "Chicago" right in the centre. It's cool. One of my favs so far...;)

Beerman, you continue to rock!

Your photo is pride of place in my kitchen (next to Steffbo's and Samsara's)

Thank you ISA and BEERMAN

I went home to the new place to unpack a few boxes at lunch time and saw that we've received our first postcard in our new place !! Hope your 'fred' is doing well.

I'm glad they made it to the new apartment!!! Something to hang on the walls while you unpack.

Oh, and Fred is doing fine right now. I think he's decided to revisit home since summer is winding down. He knows where he can get a decent meal when the snow starts to fly, but I just wish he would think that way all year. (Damn cat!)
