  1. Bears are one of my favorite critters, I love this postcard. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

  2. Cute! I wonder what the little guy will be doing tomorrow. :-)

  3. I used to have a set of dish towels that had the jobs for the days of the week. Monday is always wash day!

  4. I did not realize that there were series of postcards. I must look to see if post cards are still available. Personal snail mail is almost gone. I do not get personal mail anymore with the exception of a few cards at Christmas.

  5. Wonderful illustration I love it. Looking forward to Tuesdays!!

  6. I do love your cards and bears have always been a favorite!! Another fun one for the day, John! I do hope you have a great new week!

  7. so cute! am enjoying the bears so far.

  8. I have just been 'flicking' through your old post cards and must say I am enjoying them.


  9. Washing clothes must have been so much harder in the old days!
