It was wonderful to go out to the letterbox, expecting to find the usual assortment of bills and senior discount offers, and discover your postcard. I was pleased to hear that you've rediscovered postcard writing through Etsy.com. What an assortment they have! Why you can even buy wooden ones now!
And postcards from all corners of the globe. Did I mention that the Senior Club is doing a day trip to the Lapidary Expo? It might be worth the trip particularly since Gertrude's organising it. Her son's the one with the winery remember?
Oh I bet you were surprised to see the quilted postcards. Were you reminded of those sampler quilts that we made with Sister Mary Immaculata? Talk about a clueless lot. No wonder the poor woman had a nervous breakdown; though Theresa-Margaret's admission that she was having improper thoughts about Father What-A-Waste was probably the last straw.
Speaking of years ago, some of those on offer take me back to our chilhood days when we'd play out in the fresh air all day. Well we had no choice really did we dear.
Others remind me of some of those hobbies that we've undertaken over the years. I still wear that crocheted plaid deerstalker jacket and matching hat when the weather gets chilly, and I notice your basketweave tea cosy is still going strong.
And some of the postcards on offer just fill you with the joy of living. Which reminds me, let's do try that Seniors' Dance one more time. I know it was a trial last time with the 10 to 1 female ratio, and Raymond's body odour...but maybe our luck will change...
It's so lovely to connect with somebody you love through a few words on a postcard.
So pleased you chose me dear Beatrice to share yours with.

Your friend always, Dulcie
PS No doubt you've seen the free Avant Cards at the Chantilly Teahouse. If you'd like to see your art work featured on one of these cards download the 'Calling All Artists' pdf from the Avant Cards website. I think your straw daisy arrangements would look lovely on them. It’s free and you get 1000 cards of your own if yours gets the okay. I'll expect plenty of postcards from you then my dear! See you at 5 for the usual predinner sherry?
