    @Owen It took longer than I would have liked to get it posted, but your Nuney Castle postcard is up.

    @Slipdigit I checked the PO box yesterday afternoon. Nothing so far.

    Quite odd. I dropped in the box myself in Baltimore over a month ago.

    Yeah I sent a new one off to the FPS Saturday. Hopefully the slowdown that the USPS is running won't delay it's arrival.

    I received two from you, one in Sept and one way back in May. One also came in from @A-58 in October. I sent in four over the July 4th holidays. All sever are sitting on top of my new, yet to be installed scanner. I should have some time this week to get them online.

    Yes, you already put the May one up (from Nunney)so only the September one to add from me.

    At long last I do.

    I have a dozen WW2F/FPS updates in the queue. If all goes well, I'll have then all online today.

    I got a good number of the cards scanned, but only one posted. The image editing, and map updates are taking some time, so more to come over the next few days.

    Glad you've managed to get them posted.
    I enjoy seeing where members send the cards from.

    Yep, about time indeed. I have one more of yours to upload, and then I've got about a half dozen of my own to do.

    Me too, nice little highlights from all over the world. I keep all the cards in a wooden box on a shelf, it is surprisingly hefty now.

    I added a clutch of older postcard threads to this sub-forum, all of them sent in by me over the past year or so. I've not bumped them, but they shouldn't be hard to find if you look at thread view counts.

    We are mostly up to date, with only four older threads left to make public. Two are mine, and two from Trouble, who has resumed some postcard duties. I think we are very close to 100 postcards now, and this is not counting Christmas cards, packages, and other letters.

    Just an idea, maybe we ought to order some of these & get them sent to Otto's postal address. The money will help the Ukranians.

    It arrived yesterday, I'll scan and post it as I am able. I have another one from Biak that came in a while back, but I misplaced it in a stack of books and documents.
