A quick one today mainly from South Africa — with once exception from Paraguay.

Today I’m going to lay off the politics. I think everyone knows it was a harsh time down in South Africa at the time.

I think the most interesting sequence in this update is this exchange:

This is a bit of documentation from at least 14 years of I’m guessing a marriage. It starts off with Edna ZS5OB in 1959. The next one is from her husband (?) Stan in April 5th of 1973 followed up with Edna again the next day!

When I was looking through these I figured that it just seemed to be a duplicate or something since the first two cards look just about the same. Then I realized that the duplicate call was from Edna! :-D I like her new design with the Hibiscus Coast.

Another thing I like (and I’ve been looking for a while) is for some cards that were sent near when I was born. These are pretty darned close! I still have my eyes peeled for something even closer.

BTW: A Bottle Store is some place you can stock up on your liqueur. *hic!*  :-P

The other one I’m pulling out is just for a silly reason.

Check out the stash.


No offense though to Norm though. I’m sure it was in style then.

Maybe I should try out that look.

What’cha say?

Or maybe I should ride a lobster instead?
