Feb. 26 – A Letter & 3 Postcrossing Cards

Yesterday was Wednesday, February 26. As the Month of Letters winds down, I am still doing my best to mail something every day. Or four somethings, three of which were Postcrossing cards :

  • To Alabama, a reply to a LetterMo letter.
  • To Moscow, Russia, aΒ  card to Postcrossers Dina and Ilya, a Russian couple with an interest in U.S. history, a Civil War Virginia postcard of a battle reenactment.
  • To a Clifton, New Jersey Postcrosser who collects state map cards, a postcard with a map of Virginia.
  • To Austria, a Postcrossing card that’s a reproduction of vintage botanical prints from France showing many flowers.

And I posted them from a mailbox in my neighborhood that I had never noticed before.

Month of Letters, Day 26

Feb. 22 – A Letter to New England

I was away over the weekend. I did send mail, but didn’t have a computer with me, so I’m late updating the site.

On Saturday, February 22, I sent a letter to a LetterMo participant in New Hampshire, who just happens to live quite close to my sister. And I mailed it from a new spot, a box in a student dining hall at James Madison University, while waiting for my son’s turn to audition for All-State Orchestra.


Feb. 21 – Two Letters Today

I wrote and mailed two letters today.

One went to a LetterMo correspondent in Florida.

The other was a letter to my dad, in California. He was injured in a fall recently and the forced inactivity for a few weeks is boring him to tears; I hope a letter will offer a small diversion.


Feb. 17 – New Pen Pal

On Feb. 17 I mailed a letter to a new pen pal, here in the U.S. And I even found another new mailbox!

Feb. 15 – Postcard to Germany

On Saturday, Feb. 15, I mailed a Postcrossing card to Germany. It had an illustration of historic sites in the Charlottesville, Virginia, area.


Feb. 14 – Long Letter to a Pen Pal

I sent just one piece of mail today, but it was a big one, a very long letter to a pen pal here in the U.S. who is also participating in LetterMo.

I wrote it sitting in a cafe under a mural of a Greek island, while longing for warmer weather. The card had a beach scene, which you can see on my blog:

Feb. 13 – Just One Postcard Today

I had trouble finding any free time at all today, but I did manage to squeeze in one Postcard written and mailed. The card showed a “Virginia Is For Lovers” highway sign. The card went to a Postcrosser in Kansas City, Kansas.
