In My Mailbox (108)

Let me tell you a story. I didn't get any mail for a while. None of the neighbours did either, so I called a friend of mine who is a mailman. He checked with his boss and then they found out that the mailwoman in our neighbourhood kept the mail in her garage undelivered! It was send afterwards, so we did get our mail eventually, but the woman was fired. I would have missed some great cards if it was never send. I got six cards and one private swap.

The first card brought back some memories. When I was still living with my parents I had this poster in my bedroom. "Friends" was one of my favorite shows as a teenager. Ross was my favorite character. I love this card! It's from Simferopol, Ukraine

Always like the cartoon cards from Taiwan. It's a bit more artsy than just any other cartoon. It's from Tainan City, Taiwan.

I got this sweet orangutan from Houten, Netherlands. It's a Greenpeace card, so the sender also supported a good cause.
