Tintin and Snowy
I am so happy! Just this morning I was envious of Anna who had received a Tintin postcard. This afternoon I received my own, very first ever Tintin and Snowy card from the wonderful Andrea in Austria! Thank-you!
When I was about 11 or so I was crazy about Tintin and Asterix. Our school library had copies but they were very expensive and couldn't be issued so I spent a lot of breaks curled up in a big leather chair reading them. It was horrible when the bell rang and I had to go back to class, especially if it was in the middle of an exciting part!
In other news .. I was mentioned by name on Gem's World Postcards so I am famous! Glen has the most fantastic collection of postcards from all sorts of places. It is brilliant to pick a place in the side bar and see how many cards he has! British Virgin Islands - check! Cocos ( Keeling ) Islands - check! Qatar - check!
