What's New

The postcard packages are still arriving — many thanks to you, BPS members, for taking the time to send them to me! Hopefully we've avoided the worst of the holiday mailing, but don't worry if it takes a little longer to get here than anticipated.

And Yet More Postcards!

Another great week of postcard packages — thanks so much everyone! Incidentally, distracted BPS members who haven't yet sent theirs in, please note — the official deadline for mailing packages is tomorrow, but if you can get your postcards in the mail by mid next week, that will be fine too. Thanks again!

Brazilian Postcard Exchange!

Calling all BPS members! Would you be interested in becoming a pen pal? Fellow BPS member Hane teaches at an English school in Brazil, and she thought it would be fun for her students to practice their writing skills by having a pen friend who writes in English. If you're interested in exchanging postcards (or cards or letters) with Hane's students, let me know!

NPR Postal Service Series

Here's something that I thought you BPS members (as lovers of traditional mail) might find interesting. Via the NPR Facebook page: "NPR wants to see your most cherished mail: a postcard, a love letter, a care package. Upload images to Flickr.com, tag them NPRpostal, and tell us its story. If you're a new Flickr user, leave us your link in the comments. We'll feature some on NPR.org as part of an upcoming Postal Service series."

Just a Reminder

November 20, the postcard package mailing deadline, is approaching! To make sure your package doesn't get lost in the holiday mailing loopiness, send it off as soon as you can ...

This week has been a great one for postcard packages — thanks so much for the ones that have arrived so far!! I'll be emailing each of you to confirm I've received your package, too.

Happy weekend!

A Sad Day

My brother Greg's sweet little cat Pi passed away yesterday after a too short life — she'll be greatly missed.
