I participated in the Month of Letters challenge recently. This was great, I have made a few new pen pals, and have enjoyed (still) getting notes in the mail.
I had a few folks that sent me postcards from where they lived. I wanted to respond in kind. I knew JUST where to get them, at one of the stores locally.
Wrong. They don't carry them anymore. I should have just grabbed some other cards, but I didn't. I kept looking. And looking. AND LOOKING...
Well, I happened to be in a store that has the bank I use therein. Great! Dash in, grab the funds, go. Then an "OREGON" hat caught my eye. I realized that it had all Oregon gift type stuff. I wandered over for a quick peek.
BINGO! Postcards. I grabbed several, and cheered at my good fortune.
So, as one of my friends is fond of saying, I will get back to you right away, no matter how long it takes!
