:mrgreen:
Indeed I once sent a card to my godfather that had nothing on it (not "Nothing" but no text at all). It was the last of a bunch of cards I had written on a school trip and was distracted after I had written the address onto it.

If anyone wants a Madrid postcard ill do my best, within the week, otherwise it'll probably be Broadstairs in Kent or if they exist the village that I actually live in.

Edit Madrid requests will need to be in by Thursday evening

Oh oh oh.....am I too late Square? I'd love a postcard from Madrid please but if I'm too late it's my fault for not seeing this sooner.
I've posted my latest batch of cards to mC, Conforumist and Christian Becker today.
I'm a bit worried that some of my cards might not have arrived, so, if you haven't received one please let me know. I've posted to all the addresses I've had.

Received a nice card from Janet today. Thank you. Looks like a really nice spot.
Thanks for explaining "conkers". Aesculus hippocastanum indeed - made me smile. :D
I wonder when mine will arrive. It's been in the post for quite some time now.

Your card arrived yesterday (Saturday) Christian. Thank you very much.
Interesting place and the story about the mice made me grin. Tell me now, is the beer particularly strong in Bingen? :lol: :lol:

Never mind Square! I logged out and this is the first time I've been back (I think) since.
Hope you had a trouble-free flight :D
(PS Think I've already sent my address)

Not that I know of.
It's more of a wine city, though. Compared to beer, the wine is indeed strong. :D

She should have brought it with her, and saved the postage!
