“It was lovely seeing you again after so long. Sorry we forgot to help you with the questionnaire. Hope you enjoyed the rally. Having a good holiday with Jean and Ray. First three days glorious – yesterday dull, so we went to Poole in the afternoon where there is a smashing shopping centre all under cover. Have a beach chalet and making good use of it. We are all looking well and it is lovely to be waited on – just the life for me ! Going to see John Inman tonight. Hope you are well, also Lydia and Brian. Love and best wishes Joyce & Charles.”

“Dear Colin. Just had breakfast Sunday 9.35am ! Thanks for your letter of this week and for the stamps which as you can guess are very very useful at this time. Am writing this post to the minister at QH. Think she needs God’s help through someone. Glad you saw Ann’s babe – fancy taking up life in Liberia with a new babe. Congratulations on your Ruby wedding so sorry these last years have been sad. Was interested what your Dr said about letting go, think he’s right. Why on earth Rene said that about me and my teeth in straightaway I can’t think or remember : for I took a funeral service the same afternoon and had a bad fall on the Thurs, had wretched knees. I would have hated the other way. Think this way best if you can stick it. Love the bit about staying the night from David. Love to you Doris.”

“Dear Barbara & Wilf. Having a good time weather not too good, have just been to the Ice Show, which was very good. Hope the weather bucks up so we can go to the beach. Margaret & Colin.”

    Wow! This blog is fantastic! I had never heard of John Hinde before… but consider me now a fan. These postcards – the colours, the subjects, the retro-loveliness – just make me smile. Thanks for sharing!
