All my postcards are special..........

but this one is a

little bit


special !

It was sent to me
by my cousin Valerie,
who I have had no
contact with until this
year since 1966!!

Facebook has its Pros and Cons,
This was a Pro :-)

I found a cousin and her daughter
 in South Africa, my second cousin
and his wife in Malta,
a second cousin in Denmark and 
 my cousin Valerie's grown up children,
who contacted her for me.

 To think that
Valerie and her family
have been living in
all this time,
so close and we
never knew!

Thank you for the lovely card!
Hopefully see you soon xx


  1. that's amazing... I was just in Grado... it's such a cool city! I'll be taking Tracie P there in February... so glad you found each other... it is one of the most amazing things about FB.

  2. Wow. That will be some reunion if you meet!

  3. Ohhh!! That got me all chocked up, Anne!! Indeed an extra special card! That's soo sweet and YES! FB has been really good at finding those lost to us for many years!! YAYYY!!!!

  4. The good side of FB certainly, such a great story, hope you get to meet up soon. It looks like you might have to do a grand tour of Italy.

  5. That's a great story Anne. I do hope you get to go and see your cousin soon.

  6. A really lovely story. I think all this new technology is amazing, such as facebook, blogging etc. It makes the world seem a much smaller place somehow.

  7. I am anti Facebook (!) but for you it seems to have had some very special results. Great news for you, hope you get to meet them soon.Diane

  8. You are so right--there are some incredible bonuses to being on Facebook. So happy you made the connections!

    Wishing you a good week,

  9. Another good reason to go to Italy!

  10. Isn't the world small? I haven't had anyone contact me out of the past yet on Facebook but you never know.

  11. Another fab and extra special card :-)

    Did you get mine from china ??

  12. I was lucky enough to get a postcard from Sally on her trip to China. I'm not sure if Geoff sends them, something tells me he doesn't ;)

  13. I've always been a bit cautious about facebook, but this lovely story might change my mind.

  14. how lovely!

  15. Wow, is right Anne. This is a wonderful result of your diligence and Facebook. I am so happy for you and the good turns it has brought to you getting back in touch...what a blessing.


Thank you to everyone for commenting, it certainly makes my day. A pleasure to see everyone of you. Old and New.. Blogging not only opens up the world but gives us new friends.
