It's Raining Postcards!


Greetings from a very new swapper Donna J. She sent us three postcards from the great state of Texas. The common phrase that others may not know is everything's bigger in Texas! Donna J. writes: Mommy and cutie pie (daughter)! How are you?I'm sitting out here in the country , the air is clean and cool, after a big Texas thunderstorm. It's quiet and I can hear the goat calling out and the donkey who lives behind me talking to each other... wonder what they are saying!?

Postcard #2 reads: Hi! Did you see the Bluebonnets? They grow all over the side of the highway. It's a Texas tradition to take photos of your kids, family, pets, wedding couples, etc in the fields of Bluebonnets! Maybe someday you can all have your pics taken in the bright blue state flower of Texas!!! (Yes now we knoe what to do as soon as we get there when ever we decide to visit, and we sure will, many thanks)

Postcard #3 reads: Thank you for your help with postcrossing! I'm on my way now! - Donna J.
