The series is quickly coming to an end. In a twist of synchronicity cards seem to be saying the same thing unfortunately.

More get well soon cards addressed to the hospital… one of which…

Was delivered in person. He got over the 1975 issue though since I’ve seen cards up through the early 80’s. It’s still tough to look at them though.

Here’s the one that got to me:

A “1-way” exchange. Somewhere out there there’s a fully blank card that Jim kept along. Still had a sense of humor though.

Eventually the call W8MWC did get reissued to a John in Adrian, MI.

Vic did go on to after all this to keep on making more contacts though! :-)
