Since I don't see a forum for postcard exchanges I'll put this here. A great way to exchange stamps might be via a site I recently joined. www.postcrossing.com/ There you send and get cards randomly among over 100,000 other members and you can choose to do private exchanges with members if you want.
A great way to make efriends and learn about the world and collet both post cards and stamps.
If you join you'll find me as the only member in the country list under Northern Mariana Islands.

This was such a success for both cards and stamps for Jack Pegg 2 years ago I'd like to repeat the request for his wife now:

Please send a HAPPY 80th Birthday!!! postcard to my best friend's Mom!!!

Mrs Louise Pegg
50 Vine Street
Danville
PA 17821 USA

Her birthday is this month but getting cards all year long was part of the fun two years ago when we were able to get hundreds of cards from around the world sent to her husband Jack for his 80th.

Now we'd like to out-do that for Weeze (her nickname).

The Peggs always wanted to travel the world but 'life' prevented that. Now you can help them see and learn about your part of it with a postcard!

If you feel the need, you can mention Carol's friend Jude made this request. Not necessary though.

Thanks heaps!!!
contact me with an addy here or at heyjude71 @ hotmail . com (remove the spaces) and I'll send you a Tinian card in return.

What a great idea. I hope your friends mom received a lot of postcards from around the world. My husband collected postcards from around the world when I met him. He has a whole big box of them, and sometimes we just get them out and look at them.
