While I’ve never been on a roller coaster with her, she’s right, I do! I also dance with delight when I receive mail.

You can read about the pricing on their website, but for a sense of how reasonable it is, you can buy 10-24 postcards that will be mailed in the US for $.92! That includes making and mailing it. They now have international rates as well.

One last one showing that … red might not be the easiest color to read, but I still love my Jayhawks!
Have fun! Q4U: Who are you going to send a postcard to? What mail have you received in your mail box recently?
