HELLO 2013

Happy New Year, I know I'm a little late but this is my first update for the New Year. Today's cards include the last card received in 2012 and the first five received this year, 2013.So let's get right to it.

My first two cards are from Belgium and both are from Johan. His first card  23:59  is  a count down card to a Happy New Year.  




Johan used 1 of 5 stamps from a 2011 souvenir sheet celebrating Women in Team Sports.
















Johan's second card is a multi view of local sights and the Coat of Arms of Voeren.



Another stamp from the same set mentioned earlier was used .









Here is the last card I received in 2012. It is from Corinna in Germany and is an official Postcrossing card.  It's quite self explanatory and needs no comment. 


Corinna use a 2012 stamp celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Mittenwaldbahn Railway.
















 That's 3 cards , I have just 3 left, I'm half way there.

Russia is up next- On this one we can see His Imperial Majesty of Sovereign Emperor and the all- Russian Autocrat Nicholas II Alexandrovich.



 Tina, not My Lovely Teena, sent this card  . She is a Postcrosser living in cold Siberia. Tina use a 2009 self adhesive definitive and also the 2011 Christmas- New Year stamp.
















Here's a card of the skyline of Harare, Zimbabwe. Harare is the capital and largest city in the country.



Bruce used 2 stamps . The stamp on the left is from 2012 showing an ant , but I couldn't find any information on it. The right stamp , from 2019 showing a Lion, is from a set of 6 featuring the Big Five Of Zimbabwe.












Today's final card comes from France. It depicts the Basilica of  Notre Dame de Fourviere in Lyon. It was built between 1872 and 1884.
















Dominique used a nice large 2012 stamp featuring the Palace of  Justice in  Lyon.











That's it for this time. Thanks to Johan, Corinna, Tina, Bruce and Dominique for their cards. Once again Happy New Year. Hope you all get lots of cards this year. Just remember the Year of the Snake is just about upon us, so watch out.
 Take care, Enjoy.

Wow, that topless woman is beautiful, but I think I'd be a bit upset or embarrassed if my mail clerks had to deliver something like that to me!

I hope you had a great holiday season and that 2013 will bring you many great postcards. I'm definitely jealous of that Harare view!

Leslie, All I can say is I'm at the mercy of the sender. What comes in the mail I have no control over.
Take care,
