More Postcards ...

Hello, my friends !!

Blogger is being evil today, and I have been trying for ages to post this, but it keeps telling me "There Are Errors" ... what does this mean, and why can't I figure out what the errors are. Is it me or Blogger ??? Hopefully I will be posting this in the next few hours ....

I received another 2 postcards yesterday, so here I am sharing them with you again !!

The first one is from Viamarie, from the Philippines. It is of the Mayon Volcano in Legaspi. It looks quite spectacular, with it's almost perfectly shaped cone. Apparently it is continuously blowing smoke ... must be pretty scary, I imagine, living nearby !!

The second one is from Chrixean, also from the Philippines. It shows a Philippine Jeepney, which is a form of public transport ... I guess like a mini bus. Apparently each Jeepney is individually "dressed" according to the creativity of the owners. This one has an abundance of headlights !!

Thank you, ladies, for the lovely cards. My collection is certainly growing. I am also still getting emails from friends (new and old) wishing to be part of the Postcard Exchange. It is all so much fun.

I had a quiet type day, yesterday, with not a lot on. I did some washing, and some stuff on the computer. Chicky had a dance class last night, and I sat in the car for an hour and a half, watching a movie on her portable DVD player. I could've gone home, but with the traffic at that time of night, it would've taken me 1/2 hour to get home, then I would've only had 1/2 at home, before needing to go back ... a waste of time, as far as I'm concerned. I usually take a book, or a movie, or occasionally my laptop, and sit and relax for the hour and a half. I don't mind ... it's a bit of time-out !!

I'd better close now, as I really need to do some dusting and vaccuuming (yuck !!) ... it seems dust doesn't go away on it's own, and it mutiplies !!!

I will leave you with a quote I found, which I really, really like ...

Today is your day, your mountain is waiting, so get on your way.

Have a great day.

Take care,

You really are doing great on your response to your postcard exchange. These two are very nice.

Take care,

Meow said...

Connie ... yep, it is heaps of fun, I can't believe the number of people who want to exchange postcards. Hope all is well with you.
Take care, Meow

True Blue Guy said...

Lovely quote and the postcards are quite nice


Granny said...

Nie and I think it's blogger because it did it to me too (something about javascript)???It's working now.

Meow said...

True Blue Guy ... thank you.

Granny ... yeah, something about javascript !!! It does seem ok now.

Thanks friends, have a great day. Take care, Meow

Dick said...

Please let us know what the total number of post cards you end up with is and how many different places are represented. I suppose Chicky is too old for Show & Tell but it might be something that her classmates would be interested in. You will have post cards that you could never buy in one place!

Meow said...

Dick ... OK, I will let you know ... it will probably be a few more weeks before I have a full count. I'm still deciding how I can display them, so that I can also see the writing and stamps. Some of the cards are too big for a regular photo album, but I'll look into it. I will probably use the scanned pictures of the fronts to make a collage, or something.
Maybe Chicky will enjoy showing them off at school ... I'm sure she would !!
Take care, Meow

Nicole said...

I agree... it will be fun to see them all laid out on a table or in a book etc. My grandmother always brings back postcards from holidays instead of photos. I think it is an excellent idea. xox

Dr suess was a wise man!

LoraLoo said...

Beautiful postcards! You really are going to have a collection!

So traffic is definitely not just an American problem. :)

Hope you're having a great week!

Alice said...

"Is it me or Blogger ???"

I haven't properly looked at your post yet (I will) - I just had to say that the above quote has left an image in my head of Blogger sat on the sofa beside you saying "you know, I'm really sorry, but there are errors here. It's not you, it's me..."


...YES, I'm childish. I thought we'd already covered that??

Anyhoo, love it.

If you by any chance nip over to One Girl & Her Cats, by the way, be warned: I have posted a picture of something that some viewers may find disturbing:



Seriously, though. Be prepared.

Hugs xxx

momyblogR said...

I bought mine today.....Woo hoo! They will be on their way.

Love the ones you've posted!

kimananda said...

You are getting postcards from everywhere! This whole exchange thing is neat! :-) And if you haven't seen my response to your comment on my blog, I got your postcard today, and it's great!

Tink said...

Do you want a card from The Netherlands? Let me know your details and I'll get you one!. Mail me: tinkerbell.nl(at)gmail.com

Love, Tink

Meow said...

Nicole ... when we go somewhere, I usually bring back some postcards too ... just in case the photos don't work out !!

DaybyDay ... yes, he was !!!

Loraloo ... noooo, we have major traffic snarls here, too (perhaps not quite as bad as those I've seen on the news in America, but pretty awful, nonetheless !!)

Alice ... that's hilarious :) You are such fun. I will pop over later.

Momyblogr ... thanks.

Kimananda ... I haven't seen it yet, I will drop over later, thanks.

Tink ... thanks, I will email you later. I have got one from Denmark, but the more the merrier !!

Thank you everyone, have a great day.
Take care, Meow

You know, when I get to your site it ALWAYS cheers me up. I just love that song, and crank my stereo up (I have an awesome sound system for my puter). And these postcards are so much fun to see! Thanks for sharing them!

DayByDay4-2Day said...

Thanks for the encouragement! Your a good person.

Meow said...

Saurkraut ... you are most welcome. I am having so much fun with this site !!

Daybyday ... thanks ... I am only saying it how I see it !!! You have an amazing talent.

Take care, friends ... Meow

Hey there meow,
yes, i've been having trouble getting stuff posted up at my blog to, as well as leaving comments...also, does anyone have that wheelchair symbol next to the "word verication" box?

p.s. went out an got some postcards today...i want to put them in an envelope so they don't get spoilt...and it it CHEAPER to mail as well, how weird is THAT?


Jenn said...

My day is almost over, but I still needed that quote, thanks.

Meow said...

PJ ... yeah, that wheelchair next to the word verification is weird ... have you clicked on it ??? It seems to be for vision impaired people, I guess, as it speaks to you !!
I wonder why it is cheaper to post a postcard in an envelope, than withou ??? Weird !!

Jenn ... glad I could help. Have a great evening, and sleep well.

Take care, Meow

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Neat post cards! I hope there is a way you can share your entire collection.

The DR. SUESS quite was something I needed to hear today. Thanks!

Merle said...

Hi Meow ~~ You are sure getting lots of post cards and enjoying them.
Loved the DR. Suess quote.
Take care, Merle.

Meow said...

Nick ... glad you liked the Dr Suess quote ... I thought it was great. You know, I might make up a new blog, just for the postcards ... what do you think ?? That way they will all be together.

Merle ... I loooove my postcards, it is so much fun receiving them.

Take care, friends ... Meow

Cathy said...
