Postcards from the Hodgepodge

1. Picture postcards were first printed back in the mid-1800's and deltiology is the official name for postcard collecting. When did you last send a postcard? Receive one? Do you save postcards sent to you? Do you collect and/or send postcards when you travel?

I don't remember when I last sent a postcard. Probably when I was in my twenties.

We got a postcard just a couple of weeks ago from GG, the exchange student from Germany we had a couple of years ago. She was in Barcelona.

I've never been a postcard collector, although sometimes I'll purchase one on vacation that has a particularly good picture of a site we visit.

2. What treat do you most like to indulge in while on vacation?

Hotel waffles. And maid service.

3. Are you good at hiding your feelings?

Most of the time.

4. Does your town/city/county still deliver telephone books to your home? Do you check the yellow pages when searching for a local business number or has the internet replaced the phone book in your home?

I think we still get one of the smaller ones that covers the suburbs but the internet is my phone book.

I don't know what my grandkids are going to sit on to reach the dining room table.

5. Would you rather be first or last?

Well, that absolutely depends on what happens at the front of the line! LOL

6. July is National Park and Recreation Month (in America, but everyone can still play along)...where and when were you last in a park? Did you participate in any recreational activities while you were there?

I put my minivan in Park every time I drive it.

I was about to say I don't remember the last time I was in another park but then I remembered my girl's senior photo session back in the spring.

Recreational activities are something I try to be last in line for.

7. What was one of your worst ideas?

Wrapping three jars of local jams and jellies in bubble wrap (a hostess gift) and putting them in my girl's carry-on bag last week when she flew to Maine to spend the week with friends. I'm sure airport security enjoyed their breakfast. . . .

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I loved your vacation loves. After ice cream I love the hot waffles you get to make for yourself at the hotels. They are so yum. Glad to meet you on hodgepodge.
