Our knitting friends Arne and Carlos caught the dreaded Covid virus and Carlos in particular had a very bad dose. He and Arne have gone north to Lofoten to continue their recovery.

The first Sunday of each month a meeting of the Pacific Northwest Postcard Collectors Club is held. In anticipation of the March meeting I am going to post some of my cards. I’m never quite sure what I am going to look for, nor what I am going to find, at each meeting.That’s part of the fun.Last month I got sort of carried away by Sheep. The seller has promised to bring more “sheep” cards this month. I am also going to be on the lookout for dogs and cats. And cards from places where I have lived and traveled.
