Liberty Bell in Allentown, PA (?)

This great card comes to me from Cathy, who lives
in Allentown, Pennsylvania. It is a picture of a
replica of the Lierty Bell which is in the Zion United
Church of Christ in Allentown. The original Liberty
Bell was protected in this church from 1777 - 1778.
Thank you, Cathy, for a very interesting card!

Kari's Card From Norway

This is a beautiful card that I received from Kari,
a brand new Postcrosser from Norway. In the
sixteen months that I have been a Postcrosser,
this is only the third card I have received from
Norway. Kari says she loves to travel like I do!
Thank you, Kari, for the great card!

A Card With a Wonderful Message

Mary, from Stuttgart, Germany, sent me this
beautiful card with orchids. The message on the
front is from the Bible, and it translates:
'Cast all your anxiety on Him, for He cares for you.'
--1 Peter 5:7
Mary sends greetings from "Stutgart, a lovely city
in the Swabian part of Germany."
When we lived in Neu Ulm, Germany, we used to go
to Stuttgart. It was always a nice trip.
Thank you, Mary, for the beautiful card.

A Notecard From France

This beautiful blue card, with a white feather
floating near an edy of water, was sent to me by
Christel, lwho lives near Orleans, France.
The smal square in the lower right corner is a cutout.
When the card is opened, the feather shows on
the inside of the card. Christel is a newcomer to
Postcrosing. She says that she likes animals
and defends them ardently! She is also a
cros-stitch addict, embroidering some every day.
I love the card, Christel! Thank you very much.

From Canada

Billie Jean sent me this picture of the Fortress
of Louisbourg in Nova Scotia. I understand that
they have re-enactments of life in the early
days of the Fortress, when France was trying
to make its place in the New World.
Billie Jean says that, when she was younger,
her schol always went on field trips to visit
this Fortress. It was one of her favorite places
for a field trip.
Thank you, Billie Jean, for the nice card!
