I used to. Postcards are a bit dated these days. It's easier to Message them and/or send a photo using one of several apps. Postcards used to be a pain trying to find stamps and somewhere to post them, not to mention cost.

I stopped sending postcards when they started arriving after I got back.

Joking apart, I used to send them now and again. The last time was in 1991.

I can’t remember the last time I sent one…..I think with mobile technology they are becoming a thing of the past.
People are sending instant pictures and selfies.

A couple of years back I sent someone a postcard, but the U.S. Postal Service let me down and it never got there. My guess is some Spiderman fan got to it before it arrived.

I like to send them to the Grad kids and I enjoy receiving one from them when they are away. I hope to try an keep up the tradition.

That’s a trick question - I don’t go on vacation (holiday).

Whenever I'm away somewhere, I check in on Facebook, and also message people using WhatsApp or text them using my phone, directly or using Messenger .
