A postcard a day, from a large collection of postcards received, sent to me by me, and/or collected over the last 30+ years.

I love playing Scrabble. At any given time, I've got about four games going on Facebook with friends, one who lives in San Francisco, another who lives in Chicago, a teacher in Louisiana, and yet another who lives in Vancouver, Canada. Once I scored 469 points in a game and another time I scored 92 points on a single word. Woo hoo! I was pretty psyched.
That's why I like this postcard so much - it served as not only a holiday card, but also an invitation to an open house. The cat paw is a particularly nice touch.
I've been sending and receiving postcards for over 30 years. When I travel, I send a postcard to myself, even if it's just a one day business trip. I badger my friends to send me postcards when they go on trips. I collected postcard ads from those free postcard dispensers, that used to be found near bathrooms and phone booths in public places around the world. I have a scrapbook of postcards, sent between 1902 and 1905 to my great grandfather from an aunt, who appears to have been traveling extensively around Europe. First post: July 5, 2009
