Postcard Friendship Friday

Greetings from Gulf Shores, Alabama! Where the sand is white, the shrimp is delicious and the folks speak with slow southern drawls.

My friend Gwyne sent this card to me the year stamps cost 34 cents...whenever that was. I can't read the postmarked date. I keep this card propped up in my roll top desk. Over all the years of our friendship, she has sent me numerous cards. I keep the one of two poodles under hairdryers on my inspiration board downstairs. I appreciate her quick-witted big personality and she says she appreciates my spontaneity.

I like to think that Gwyne's writing reflects the hyperbole of her personality. It is big, bold and decisive, but with a flare that says "I won't let the world miss out on the fact that I was here!"

People come in all sizes and shapes. Just like snowflakes, we are all originals.

For more PFF dash over here.

  8. I hadn't received a post card in years.. truly, I can't remember the last one before this past week, when one arrived from a very dear friend. It SO made my day. With e-mail so common, post card writing is a lost art.

  9. A lovely card and a great message! I wonder if she managed to find a hairy man. :)

  10. love this as I've spent many a loved vacation on the rednect riveria! (LOL) what a fun. I love friends with big personalities.

    Handwriting tells A LOT about people.

  15. I would love some delicious shrimp for dinner.

  16. Oh, I love Gulf Shores!! I remember it from my earliest days - back before Hurricane Frederick (I think it was) - when you could still drive Dune Buggies on the beach...

  17. how fun to get postcards in the mail from a good friend. it is interesting when we can see someone's personality in their handwriting. mine has changed over the years as i've gained confidence and gotten more artistic, my writing has become larger and more flambouyant.

  18. I am real late getting out and about to everyone's blog this week. I've been out of town and have had little time to play. But I'm glad I stopped by today. Great cards!
    I hope you and yours had a beautiful weekend.

  19. How VERY fun.

    I'm sorry I am coming by so late for Postcard Friendship Friday. As you probably know, our parents were involved in a roll-over accident on the freeway and are both now recovering, leaving little time for blogging. I had a few minutes just now, though, so here I am.

    Happy PFF!

  20. Wow...I can't tell you how many times I've said that to my children and to people...People are people no matter what color or size they come in. They're like flowers--all beautiful and unique.

    Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
    The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.


I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
