A postcard a day, from a large collection of postcards received, sent to me by me, and/or collected over the last 30+ years.

It's fall! Except that it is expected to be 90 degrees in Pasadena today, which doesn't really feel like fall. So, in honor of fall somewhere, here's a postcard of golden aspens in Colorado, sent by my brother and sister-in-law from Pagosa Springs.
I've been sending and receiving postcards for over 30 years. When I travel, I send a postcard to myself, even if it's just a one day business trip. I badger my friends to send me postcards when they go on trips. I collected postcard ads from those free postcard dispensers, that used to be found near bathrooms and phone booths in public places around the world. I have a scrapbook of postcards, sent between 1902 and 1905 to my great grandfather from an aunt, who appears to have been traveling extensively around Europe. First post: July 5, 2009
