Quoting marlis

Hi Isadora,
so the little black and white postpingui has finaly delivered the card.
I wonder where he has been so long.At Utrechts or Purdy's place since they got there cards at the 28/9 of February.;)
The tiny little gift shop I bought and wrote the first cards was on a small Island called Port Lockroy right in Antarctica and there was also the post office where I put the cards in a bright red mailbox.So if you got the card with the stamp from Ushuaia then there is still the card to be delivered with the pinguin stamp on.(got one in my passport)
please make sure that the little postpingui wont stay to long at your place,he should bring some cards to other TP members and please NO Martinis on the rocks because you have not the proper Ice he is used to.

Yup, the little guy made it!!! And yes, the postmark is Ushuaia! I kept him away from the vodka and explained it would just stunt his growth. He wasn't happy but didn't put up too much of a fuss.

Thank you again!!! Considering we live in the Middle-Of-Nowhere-USA, it takes the mail a bit longer to get here sometimes.

Thank you, Marlis!!!!!!

After a very long day that culminated in me just about bursting into tears over a comma (how sad is that?), I came home to find a postcard of the little butlers in my mailbox. Aren't they the cutest things??? Thank you for the postcard and for absolutely making my day!

Happy long-gorn Easter, AdoraBeer
Thanks for the calendar, and the photos are great (tell the brother-in-law).
Arashi Beach and Hoggar Mountains get the feet itching big time.
Gonna hang it in the orifice and try to persuade my boss that American holidays should apply to Oz
Eldest daughter got married last Saturday (Easter weekend) in the back garden and that was something to experience.
Think New York socialite? marries Ozark Mountain moonshiner
Had something like 15 Snowy Mountain men and their kin skulling beers and admiring the inhouse toilet.
Nobody fell in the pool (surprisingly enough) and there was only one instance when the groom was gonna biffo a local lad under some chemical influence.
I don't think I thanked you for the Xmas phone call.
Very surprised but delighted, although I was suffering from the neck oil overdose the night before.
Can't make it to Chicago but when you get to Perth, a day-trip to Rottnest will be organised no problem.

Thank you, Purdy/Heather! The Canary Island (just the one?) looks fabulous. Didn't know camels were native there! Non-watered-dwon Sangria, indeed! Must find ourselves some of that again. :)

Thank you Purdy and Marlis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Purdy!!! I expected lush tropics rather than sand dunes but it's beautiful!! So, it's just one big beach, eh??!! (Would explain T's camel comment.) And, I think there's a theme here - drink, eat, drink, swim, drink, sun, drink, drink, drink... Glad to hear you had a relaxing vacation!!!!!

Thank you Marlis!!! Postman Penguini arrived again yesterday!! The babies are soooooooo cute!!!!! And, you can take those gloves off now that you are back home. So glad you had an amazing trip - it is one of a lifetime!!!!!! Thank you again!!!

Thank You Marlis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, the parrots were faster than the penguins!! But, it's not the penguin's fault they were cheated when someone handed out the wings. They do the best they can.

Iguazu' Falls look amazing!!!! With any luck, one day we may actually get there too. So happy you had great weather and fewer tourists blocking up the view. Three Musketeers? Interesting name for them!

Thank you again!!!!!!! ;)
