Comment: Thank you so much for the swap! I love, love the postcard! It's so fun to read the things that were happening the year you were born. I remember them because I was 17 at the time! I'll never forget the day Elvis died and I heard it on the car radio. I also got married in October 1977. Good year for sure! Thanks for the stickers too!
