Comment: Hi Barbara, you're a hard-working lady! Pet sitting sounds like a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. Thank you for the offbeat notecard, and the tuck in. I also really like your handwriting. Enjoy what's left of this weekend!

Comment: Thank you for the resend. The first one you sent still hasn't arrived. The list sheets will be useful. The postcards and notecards- I may have a hard time with using them; perhaps I will frame them :) The Christmas stickers came in time for making more Christmas crafts.

Comment: Thank you so much for the gift & postcard. Wow, the fire came from your house all the way to mine, but we were both spared...how blessed we are! I'm so glad all the smoke has finally cleared & we got a bit of rain. Hopefully there is a lot more to come and new things grow back soon :D Have a merry & safe Christmas!
Response: We got the smoke and ash from the fire. If the wind had been blowing in our direction, we all would have had to evacuate.

Comment: Hello Barbara, I canโ€™t thank you enough for your fantastic COVID letter. I so enjoyed reading your perspective on this crazy time. Your Herb stationary was very pretty too๐ŸŒพ I hate to say it, but this election combined with the continued COVID illnesses will continue to lead this nation into many unknowns. I am putting your letter in my COVID journal. All the best,

Comment: Thank you so much! I love this card and I love the article you sent me too! I just looked online and the website for the Museum and research center is still up-- says "Due to COVID-19 regulations, the Schulz Museum is temporarily closed until further notice. Please visit our Calendar page for online events." Hopefully it's all intact and safe!! Hugs!
Response: That's good to know. Perhaps it was a former home of his that burned in a wildfire a couple of years ago in Santa Rosa, CA.

Comment: Thanks for the nice letter and PC. That sounds like a nice trip. I enjoy seeing wildlife. I have to, as I have deer, moose, fox, coyote, badger... in my yard very frequently. We have also had bear and wolf but they, along with the skunks, possums, and raccoons usually visit in the wee hours of the morning.

Comment: Calendars are an excellent source for Cut n Paste postcards. I love the sleeping sandpipers - the camouflage colour, the texture. Very nice. Thank you bf0932. P.S. Yes, it's been a very strange summer but all-in-all a nice one.
