Catch up time

I've fallen way behind in my posting of postcards and they have been piling up. My scanner broke and it wasn't a high priority to fix. It's now a priority to post, so I can file away the piles of cards on my desk. If you have been looking for your card that you've sent - be patient hopefully you will see it up soon. Thanks
