Hen in Bonn, Germany likes cards connected to railways. So I sent him this card from Rockford, Illinois where I grew up. It’s of the Rockford Military Band, police and dignitaries waiting for President Teddy Roosevelt to arrive at the train station on South Main Street in 1903.

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 6 days after traveling 6,544 km! Hen wrote, “Hello from Bonn on the Rhine, and many thanks for the card in the German. This is the 1st time in 3 years and 3 months. […] I like your music and train card very much!” 🙂 I can’t believe I’m the 1st to write to him to German! Wow! 


William of Nijmegen, Netherlands likes cards of lighthouses so I sent him one of the Cape Henry Lighthouses, which I saw last year. (And went to the top of the one on the right!)

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 5 days after traveling 6,417 km! William wrote, “Hallo Maria, Thank you for cute card, I like it very much. All the best. Greeting from The Netherlands”


DorothĂ©e in Paris, France said she likes postcards of historic people, so I sent her this one of JFK and Jackie O. She also said she’d like to receive recipes, so I added one for Zucchini Pie. It’s one of my favorites! I tried to translate the cups/teaspoons/etc. into grams. Cooking would be much easier if the US used grams. 🙂

HURRAY! My card reached its destination in 5 days after traveling 6,311 km! DorothĂ©e wrote, “Bonjour Maria ! Thank you very much for your great postcard ! John and Jackie, what a glamour couple ! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll try it ! For sure ! Italian food is delicious 🙂 I only know Richmond by the novels of Patricia Cornwell and her heroine Kay Scarpetta. Haha :p Have a nice day!”
