Top: Montreaux, Switzerland. Mailed in 1953 to my mom from a friend. She said,
" This is a wonderful country. We have had only one day of rain and that was the day we drove 180 miles into the Alps. " Cheery greeting, no?
Middle: Mailed June 1992, from my friend in Ireland. She said, "I can't wait to tell you of this most wonderful week. This country and its people are just incredible! I'm re-JOYCE-ing at this International James Joyce Symposium. Get to hear Seamus Harvey read poetry tonight! " I found out when she returned that the reason for her rejoicing was an Irish guy she met, not the symposium or the poetry!
Bottom: The Pembroke Hotel in Pembroke Parish, Bermuda. Mailed in April 1980, from our brother and sister-in-law. They said, "Having a lovely time.......going sailing on a yacht Tuesday." Several years later, we stayed at the Southampton Princess, but I don't have a card for that one. Too bad, as it was lovely, and had the most wonderful beach. It was a bit too cool to swim when we went (May), but the sun, sand and breezes were warm and the clouds formed little animals just for me.
