Last weekend I spent an hour or two catching up on a small pile of newspapers, having a read. I like to ponder over the amusing articles that I might find. Here is one that I thought would make an interesting submission for Postcard Friendly Friday.

    Such a nice article. Thanks for sharing this. I clicked on the photo and it enlarged enough to read.

    I do enjoy stories like that. I also like the fact that it was sent from Wales, has the Declaration of Abroath stamp and was sent to England. A card covering three countries. A well travelled card.


  6. How very interesting! I enjoyed reading this so much. Thank you for sharing this.

    Happy PFF!
