    I did a search for Camp Nelson and I suspect if I sent one of these cards to Godfrey, Ontario it will be returned. Does Camp Nelson still exist? I am going to send a card there today, with my return address on the card, hoping CanadaPost will do the honors if they cannot deliver it.
    Send one here: https://www.greenbaycabins.ca/history.htm

    Even if it's not the same place, they'll probably get a kick out of it.

    Your search did better than mine. I got down to Godfrey and postcode K0H, but couldn't find a lake to match.

    Thank you. So it's off to Larry and DiAnne's camp, though its only one of several buildings along Green Bay of Bob's Lake.

    I sometimes joke that postcards are delayed because during postoffice coffee breaks, postcards are favorite coasters and it takes a week or a month before anyone notices and returns them into the flow of mail. Proof arrived today in the form of a Postcrosser's postcard from Germany, 25 days for what usually takes a week!

    I would like to swap postcards. Has anyone had a problem finding cards that arenít all shiny and not friendly to fountain pens.

    I just picked up a box of 100 National Park (American) postcards at 20 cents each, tucked away on a lonesome shelf of our local old-fashion bookshop (complete with squeaky wooden floors).

    Oh joy! I open my mailbox and see one of these. If you are a customer of the USPS, you know these special envelopes. I suppose a half a postcard is better than none.
