Comment: Great pc, Cathy, thankyou! Sparky, the store dog looks very important sitting on his stack of books! The quote, the postage stamps and the row of books (sticker I think!) under my address were fabulous. Can you tell I really love what you sent? All the best, Tracy.

Comment: Thank you so much for the great postcard! The Met is a museum I definitely want to see someday. I saw the Delacroix exhibit last summer when it was here at the Louvre. You are definitely right about seeing the evolution of his art; you could almost see his state of mind at certain points. His painting, La Libertรฉ Guidant le Peuple, is so iconic to France that they teach about it, and him, in the language courses here. Thanx again!

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
