Finding postcards, and a couple unique ones

Gulliver and I continuously thank family, friends and casually met individuals too numerous to name for finding blank postcards and sending them along for use in the project.  I have to confess, there are a few Gulliver hasn’t been willing to let go of, and will probably keep in his private collection and share here occasionally.  I haven’t asked his thoughts on Nessie – the Loch Ness Monster.  It would be almost as difficult to explain such a creature to a 6,7 or 8 year old as the northern lights and what causes them.

One good source of international postcards has been the fine postcard enthusists at http://www.postcrossing.com.  It is a free community of people who exchange postcards – some are random exchanges and others are swaps – I have a map of California I will swap for your card of ….  It is wonderful when people are agreeable with swaping several cards at one time, so Gulliver’s notes to classes can be standardized. Some postcrossers are willing to write directly to a classroom and tell something about their area. Travelers know the value of a local’s knowlege! That is all for this week. Next week, Gulliver wants to share some fan mail.  Purrs to all….
