  1. I am so proud to be a part of your poster. I had to think to figure out where the shot was taken. Cheers,

    1. Jan, the sizing limited me. I wanted to get all four of us in, but I'll put Gail in the next one! Hugs!

  2. Thanks for this, Martha! I love this postcard and I'm going to repost it on my blog (with a link back to yours, of course). I sourced the postcard from Still Eagle in my home province of British Columbia, Canada!

  3. Susan, I agree this postcard is brilliant! And thank you for reposting it at your blog. I will look up Still Eagle too.
