1. I got one in the mail today but it was a commercial card.

H and R Block.

Sad!

Last one sent was probably from Mexico, years ago, a little resort town named Akumal.

Postcards are fun!

6. Quite a bit....

It was a fairly large postcard...so she recapped the wedding and then made some comment about how she knew I would love the kilt.

I'm from the US but I am mostly of Scottish decent with Swedish, English, and Cherokee mixed in. However, I will freely admit I do have a thing for kilts.

16. Not for a long time!

But I recently found two postcards from my great uncle Tommy to his brother. They had pictures of him playing college football in 1913. He was on the University of Michigan team and the game in both pictures was against Pennsylvania. Both cards had plays that were featured in a front page article about the game in the Ann Arbor newspaper and Uncle Tommy was instrumental in those plays. I also found the newspaper article with a full page of photos of the game!

Other old postcards my family have saved include an embroidered one that my grandfather sent from France in WWI, a card with his Army Corps of Engineers unit marching (not sure where, but it was down a city street), and one of him with his cousin when they first enlisted - they are soooooo young!

18. I send several postcards a week to an elderly relative.

It's hard to talk to her on the phone and she loves getting mail.

20. Last card I recieved was from Cuba

My octogenarian mother travels a lot and always sends a postcard. Funny, she beat the Cuban postcard home by two weeks.
