Jamaica from Sean

Sean is one of my oldest and dearest friends (read high school sweethearts). It has literally been years since I have seen him and almost as many since we spoke. Having a friendship that spans 30 years (yikes, we are that old!) doesn't always need the day to day to know where you stand with the other person. That is the beauty of a good friendship. Anytime, anyplace, anything.

So, a few weeks ago I heard that he was in Jamaica for a holiday. Having not told too many people of my postcard hobby, I emailed him asking to send me a card. I figured if anyone would tease me about this being a somewhat weird (read geeky) hobby it would be him, but at the same time he would understand. Super excited when he returned and messaged me that he had sent one.  

This beauty arrived last week. A wonderful beach view of Doctor's Cave Beach in Montego Bay. Had a good giggle with what he wrote too "Wish you were here!". First thing my husband said when reading my cards for the day was "Awkward!!!!". Not too sure his wife would be writing the same thing either!

The stamp is probably the best part. It was issued in 1995 and commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the Birth of Bob Marley and today would have been his 68th birthday!

Thanks Sean!

    1. Might sound big but it equals $1.07 CDN. Actudlly cheaper to send to Canada than it would be from Canada to Jamaice or the US for that matter.Our postal rates are on the high side. (pardon any pun!)
