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 raining here today, so I imagine Truckee might look like this right about now, or at least later today when the storm clears. Here's something fun to look at: a highway webcam, at the Truckee exit off I-80! Looks more like rain than snow.
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
