Just a ????? riding up and down the hills. Just have time to breathe between times. Am tired & sleepy all the time.
Answering your questions:
To Kerri and Happyone … We have been collecting old post cards for 20+ years. It’s difficult to say how many we have but probably a couple of thousand. There are basically two sources we’ve used: 1. Memorabilia “swap meets” or “shows” where dealers and collectors gather around the country, usually once a year in a particular location, and 2. More recently, online auctions. Thank you for your questions.
Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
I think that missing word is "line" as in writing a line (while) riding... but Millie didn't believe in punctuation, apparently. That's quite a picture! :-)ReplyDelete

Love the picture. Millie's message reminds me of how I feel tired all the time! LOL I agree with DJan that the word is "line".ReplyDelete
I love that picture. So special. And interesting.ReplyDelete
I guess home can be anywhere. : )ReplyDelete
Wow that's a lot of cards you have collected. Thanks for the info.
Oh John how interesting a hobby. Lots of cards all those years wow! . I see now where you collect them. And do with them.ReplyDelete

I agree with "line"...writing a line of information to whomever. Interesting.ReplyDelete
