Postcards From Blogging Friends: Part Eight

This is the last post in this series for now. Thanks again to everyone who sent them. If you want to see more, keep sending the cards! I promise they will feature on my blog.

Fraggle sent me this one, her third card. An English fortified tower.
Great history, from the north of England.

Two from Maggie in America.
She sent views of her home state, North Carolina.
The trees looking wonderful in Autumn.

A rock in a river, much loved as a slide by tourists.
It is called (what else?) Sliding Rock.
(Sorry I chopped off the top of this card. It looked OK in the viewfinder!)

The next selection is that something extra I told you about.
German blogger Michael could not find a card of his home town, so instead he sent me a parcel of local souvenirs.

This is a sticker, promoting his town of Eslarn.

And next a small metal badge, designed to be nailed onto a walking stick.

Last but not least, an impressive cloth pennant.
Front view.

Back view.

You all know how happy I am to have this collection, and to see something of where you live, or your trips and travels.

Keep them coming!

    1. Thanks, BC. It started life as a post about ‘old’ postcards, and I jokingly suggested fellow bloggers should send me one. I was delighted with the response! I have three more waiting to feature, but maybe you should send me one too? Perhaps a nice one of your campfire? πŸ™‚
      Best wishes, Pete.

  1. Thank you for mentioning, Pete! Seems i have to go to our local church very soon, to send you a picture postcard too. I heared there are some. πŸ˜‰ Best wishes, Michael

    By the way: In the past here we had a lot of picture postcards, with different views of the town. But since reunification of the both German states tourism has broken down, and no one is interested in tourism furthermore. Only a homebrewing club wants tourists for offering their beer. πŸ™‚

    1. You are right, David! We are only five kilometers away from the border to the Czech Republic, and only 140 km from Prague. CZ became a member of the EU on May, 1 of 2014. But visiting our friends in the Czech Republic is much more difficult yet, as it was during the “Cold War”. Nobody here in the border region is interested to establish real friendship. ;-( The link is fantastic. The page includes all relevant traffic signs, not to get beaten by our police. πŸ™‚ Michael

  2. I am glad you enjoyed the cards, Pete. We are actually taking a ride on the parkway this afternoon to see some of the fall colors. The souvenirs from Germany are really nice. What a collection you must have.

  3. Dear Pete,
    we suppose there is nothing wrong to be tired sometimes, actually, we think it’s quite healthy in a world where you have to be fit all the time. We suppose this fitness is the new plague.
    We love your idea with the postcards. We can’t remember when we got a postcard except Pit from Texas regularly sends us postcards when he is travelling. He often converts his pictures into beautiful postcards.

    1. Thanks very much, KB. I mentioned the postcards some time ago, and asked bloggers to send them to me. I was overwhelmed by the great response, including from Pit, who has sent me some. πŸ™‚
      Best wishes to you all at the coast.

      1. Dear Pete
        When our dear Master was a teenager he had a room that was plastered with postcards. For him, so he told us, this was his window to the world.
        Warm greetings to you and Ollie from the cold sea
