I will be away from this blog for a number of days. My next update will not be before October 10th. I am going on a small vacation , first a couple of days in Victoria, B.C. and then a week in Honolulu. So when I return there should be lots of postcards and certainly a couple of new countries in my collection. I received a couple of new country postcards today, but am too busy to update. But I can say that Country #200 has indeed arrived and I do have a winner in the competition that I had going. There were only 2 guesses and wouldn't you know , 1 was a winner. More on that when I return.
