Comment: I received the PC for the next round. Thank you. Pizza places around here are doing as much - one says more - takeout business as they were take-out and eat-in combined.

Comment: Thank you for the postcard! If you ever visit New Mexico, I suggest pretty much any national park because they are super cool and interesting. It's super cool your family has a pizzeria. I love pizza, but I wonder if I would get tired of it in that situation.

Comment: Thank you for the interesting card. My favorite pizza is actually my homemade pizza. I really don't go out for pizza very often although there are quite a few Pizza parlours here. Depending on which area of town you are in. I have heard several of the locally owned ones are very good.

Comment: Hi Becky, Pizza is one of my favorite foods! I love thin crust pepperoni but I also like different toppings like anchovies and roasted garlic. I have drank a Boylan's soda! Thanks for picking purple for me. xo

Comment: My friend brought me the mail today and she said "and look! The envelope matches the stamp!" So cute. And when I saw that there were postcards inside I thought, of dear more to put in the box to pass along. But then I saw it was a WW1 card! And then I got really excited! Thank you soooo much! And the other one, the Hummel, reminds me of the Hummel figurine that was always on my mother's bedside table and we were never allowed to touch it! It was a mysterious, beautiful object I very much coveted! She still has it.

Thank you for the Shoo-fly pie postcard as the extra p/c in the Roulette swap. Yes, my entire family is still there in Lancaster. In fact, I will be in Strasburg for the most of July. AND...I am going to B&B's on the 21st, next week. Small world, for sure. Have a great Valentines Day and a happy birthday (coming up).

I updated the rules in The Bargain Boutique and asked that everyone read and sign them. Unfortunately I don't see your name so I had to remove you. If you'd like to rejoin please let me know. Thanks!
