The postman handed me this rather large card with a curious look ;)

A lovely collection of Parisian pics, and gorgeous stamps on the back. Thanks Dean!

Join the club, but a Yorkshire lass for me.  Same island, different place.

Ah, I have never seen a parking meter card! We don't really have parking meters, other than maybe in London or big cities (where I refuse to drive!)

British Telecom discontinued phonecards in 2003, so many in my collection are from Japan, where they seem to have the most interesting.

No problem about the address - I married an Englishman, so any rivalry is in jest. Mostly. ;)

Sorry about that, and I know it is a delicate subject.  I know this from Tom Jones.   So England is gone, long live Wales!

Sad to say that this is not a phone card, but rather a parking meter card.  However, I will try to phone with it once to see if it works.  If one can ever find a phone box these days.  Now where did I put those old phone cards?

I especially like the phonecard attached to it - I used to collect phonecards, and still have a pretty big collection of Movie themed phonecards.

Dean - you have my address a little wrong on your labels. It says Wales... England. Can you take the 'England' part off, just in case the postman gets confused and I don't get your wonderful mail? England is a different country! ;)

A curious look from a postman is a good sign.  You'll soon be famous in the postal circles of Wales!  Happy it arrived and thank you for blogging.
