Comment: Cathy--what a delightful swap from my favorite city in the US. I haven't been there since 2010 and have been thinking I need to get another trip in soon. I will be 70 next April---a fact I am trying to wrap my head around. 50 and 60 were no big deals, but 70 seems more like becoming OLD! That's why I want to get to the city pretty soon so that I am still able to put in the amount of walking it requires.I will need to give in and get the left hip replaced---arthritis is really my enemy! Both knees are totally replaced and then I'll have the hip totally replaced as well with the other one coming along fairly soon also. I'll feel like the bionic woman! Then I should be able to walk in NYC as well if not better than my daughter. She gives in to the cold faster than I do--both of our trips were in December because I was still teaching and it was either December or summer (not my favorite season anywhere--it lasts 6 months here! So, now I'm thinking April or October--I love spring and autumn and don't really have autumn here at all and spring is just a bit of a change as much is green here all winter. Anyway, thanks so much for the perfect card, the freebie postcard from Grand Central. When we were there, I just wanted to stand on a wide area on the stairs and watch the people going so fast to get to next train or to work, etc. I, too, wondered how many fascinating stories could be written about each person of groups of people. Happy Swapping---Peggy

Thank you so much for the postcard of the cherry blossoms for National Poetry Month! What a wonderful surprise! You are so kind! It has been a long winter and it's nice to finally see some buds on the trees! I will be soaking up all the sunshine this spring and summer in place of the cold and gloomy that has been all winter here. Thanks again for being such a wonderful and dedicated swapper, especially in the Adventures swap. :) Have a most wonderful day! Annie
