  1. What is exactly this postcrossing you talk about Grace ? Do you know the number one lesson from this tale for the business ? Good friday to you too. Tomorrow is a good day for facebook.

    1. Hello coach, I’m so late to answer here, but I saw this comment and sent you the link of the french postcrossing group on FB, it’s very simple and people are friendly. The goal of Postcrossing is very simple, it’s to connect the world via real mail, by allowing you to exchange postcards with other random members around the world.

    1. Hello Deborah, well, it’s amazing how hot is it and how I wish the rain dance from the indian really exist, too bad…It’s doesn’t work, I have try one….Smiles !

  2. My daughter will be happy to received Alice in Wonderland as a card. It’s not very original to send this when you are in US did you ask for her in particular ? Bon week end apparemment c’est repos ? Philippe the White Rabbit

    1. Wouaf wouaf wouaf qui l’eût cru mais Philippe, tu devrais être en vacances plus souvent, tu es hi…LA…RANT…Well, I’m sure that the best dad in the word will send her one while you are with her, so that when she will come home she find it…what do you think ?

    1. Hello Violet, nice to read you here again, well thanks for the compliment. No, it’s been more or less one month that I’m postcrossing.

  3. The Postcard Friendship Party sounds like fun. Could be a day I try it but I have my hands full now. I like the cards you showed and I am sure yours that you sent were very nice. I still have my ham radio QSL cards that I got back in the 1950’s. For most of them I also sent on in return or first. Every now and then I get the box open and look at them all.

    1. Oh thank you for sharing this Jim. Well I hope they were, I have one card selected as favorite for now, I’m just starting postcrossing and I really like sending and receiving postcard, I didn’t ask for specifics one, but your box seems to be a real « treasure box. Humm…

  4. Grace I’m not familiar with Alice’s adventures and I don’t know much about Lewis Carroll. It’s a nice card but very simple.

    1. Alice’s adventures begin when she follows the White Rabbit down the rabbit-hole. He is a messenger and a herald at the Court of the King and Queen of Hearts. He wears a waist-coat and carries a pocket watch.
      Lewis Carroll was a pseudonym. His real name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, He was an author, photographer, mathematical lecturer and as an ordained Anglican deacon, a Reverend » He wrote Alice Through The Looking Glass in 1871, it was also here, during a rowing trip with the three young daughters of the Dean of Christ Church, that Carroll shared his imaginary « Wonderland » with the outside world. Having told the children about the adventures of his « little heroine », one of them, the sister called Alice, asked him to write them down, which he duly did, finishing the manuscript on 10 February 1863.Encouraged by friend and author of fairy stories George MacDonald, whose children also loved the tales, and novelist Henry Kingsley , Carroll set about having the story « Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland » published. In later life, Carroll confounded popular opinion, by denying Alice Liddell, the child who begged him to write the stories down, was ever the inspiration for the character « Alice » in his books. (SIC) check Wikipedia to see the real Alice you will be surprise.
