The postcard project that we started a couple of weeks ago has started to take off. Although we had sent many postcards (well, it felt like that as the children were writing them!) we have only just started to receive postal offerings.
An interesting experience so far; we have received a photograph someone took themselves of what looks like their local bank and a postcard from Toledo, Ohio, with a picture of a rusty buoy on the front.
However, this particular card did cause great excitement as we know someone from Toledo!! Yes indeed - as the kids were very quick to point out, Toledo is the hometown of Corporal Maxwell Q. Klinger (the one who dressed as a woman in M*A*S*H)
