TAKE A WORD


This week's word at Take a Word is MAIL and that got me thinking about the type of mail that might have been sent out in years gone by.  And that reminded me of young Harold who once posted a letter (very much like this one) to Santa asking if he might have a pair of long trousers and a train set for Christmas.  I never did find out if his request was successful ..... but I do hope it was.

Thanks for another great word Marie.

Credit to Digital Sextant and NumbBum for the figures and the background.  I made the postage stamps out of bits of dis n dat which were Googled.

Thank you for looking.
