Meow's Postcard Exchange

Back in early April, 2006, I put out a post on my main blog, asking if anyone wanted to join a Postcard Exchange ... this is still open. If you would like to join this exchange, just email me with your snail-mail address, and I will send you mine by return email, and there we go !!! Complete discretion is guaranteed ... your postal addresses will remain private and confidential, as (I hope) mine will to you. This blog is to display all the wonderful postcards I have received.

This postcard is from Dick and Huggy, who were recently having RV adventures, and were telling us all about them in his blog. Very interesting, with lots of great photos.

This one is from Oatman, Arizona, and he says it is a fun town to visit. He says that the burros are descendents of those turned loose by miners when they left. Some of the herd of 2,200 or so have discovered begging for carrots from the tourists in town. On the back of the card it says that it is on the historic Route 66, and was the main highway until 1952. Oatman is an old gold mining town that time forgot. Gold mining was made illegal at the beginning of World War Two, but sevral mining companies are once again interested in mining the gold in the area.
