You got mail!

A postcard!! No email, WhatsApp, messenger, text or social media. This photo will soon be in the history books. When did you either send or receive a handwritten old fashion postcard? I remember going on vacation and spending a night writing postcards to everyone. No such thing anymore.
My friend wrote that she is sending out this card to me ( from my hometown) as it support local businesses and stores. How wonderful!
I hadn't really thought about that, but it's sad, really. Bill and I had looked at some of his mother's things shortly before he died, and there were many postcards from places he'd taken vacations when he was little. Kind of a piece of history now. Like the way you shared this.

Not a think you see very often these days. I do have one friend who always sends us a postcard when he goes away though.

Leuk! Wychen bij Nijmegen. Wij krijgen af en toe een 'echte' kaart van onze kleindochters in de brievenbus. Ze worden zorgvuldig bewaard.

A great photo. I love to write and often send letters to family and friends. I even have a penpal that I have had for 24 years. So to me there is nothing better than writing and receiving real mail.

Haven’t received one for a long time! Mostly they used to be delivered long after the person that sent it had returned home!

Meestal doet mijn vrouw dit. Met verjaardagen en Kerst. En ze maakt (schildert) ze zelf. Lopen naar de brievenbus doen we wel vaak gezamelijk. Telt dat ook ?

Yes, a sight like this is a relic, an antique. And one that should be brought back into our lives!

Thank you for the comments shared on recent pictures of mine. Appreciate that.

Lovely shot and so true... the world is certainly a different place from what it used to be. You’ve captured the spirit of the past here.
