A Postcard A Day - Friday 3 August 2018 - Friday Smiles

Hello lovely people,
How have you all been? I am fine and smiling from ear to ear. We're on a little mini holiday. One of our boys is holidaying in the Algarve with wife and three children. They drive back to the ferry through Spain and we have arranged to meet half way. It's a place called Plasencia. It's a day's drive from where they are and a day's drive from where we are. We have decided to go one day before them so here we are in a little hotel room with dodgy wifi...
We saw the famous Alcantara bridge, a Roman bridge near the border. I have lovely photos but I stll haven't figured out how  to retrieve my photos on my iPad and insert the image in Blogger, so you'll have to wait until I get back home to my desktop.

Here are some postcards:

This black and white card is supposed to be funny, but to be honest, I don't see what is so funny. Perhaps horses don't sit like that (I have no idea about horses). Anyway, this is a card I sent out this week to someone who likes black and white cards.
This is a stamp I have used for all my cards this week. I bought a whole sheet of these. 

It's unusual in that the white bit representing the bridge is actually cut out.
The card with the books I received this week from the USA. The sender (I forgot her name) is a lover of books and absolutely loves reading books. She told me what she was reading at the moment. 

I had a really nice surprise this week. A friend from work is holidaying in Andalucia at the moment with her husband. She contacted me the other night saying she had only just realized I lived near Granada. The were staying in Granada, could we arrange to meet. So they kindly got on the bus the next day, arrived at 3 pm, but they had to get the 6pm bus back. so it really a a flying visit.
We had so much fun catching up! (and oh the joys of a mature double chin!)

I'd better get some funnie for you. As I am not at home I have no way of checking (other than reading through all my blogs) if I have shown you these before. so apologies if I have repeated myelf.

That was my Friday contribution to Annie's Friday Smiles. Have a great weekend all,
and keep smiling!


  1. Great funnies Lisca. Hope you're having a nice visit with your son and grandkids. Hugs-Erika

  2. What a fun week you have had Lisca. So glad you got to visit with your friend and are spending time with your son and DinL.

    I have seen the first two and the last funny before, but not the next to last two. I still think that first one is simply incredible and a great example of fabulous mural art. Have a great Friday and weekend, too.

    BTW, I thought the poor horse was NO laughing matter!!!

  3. Super funnies Lisca! Great you could meet with your friend even though it was just for 3 hours! Happy weekend! Big hugs, Susi

  4. Ah bless, I hope you have a fabulous time on your mini break. The postcards are unusual and I don't 'get' the horse one either. I loved the stamp.

    I love the photo of you and your friend, how lovely to catch up albeit that it was only a fleeting meet up.

    Loving the funnies. I'll post a link to your blog as I've just posted.


  5. Hi Lisca. I had to smile when you mentioned about your trip to see your son as it reminded me of the day we thought we would drive from Benalmadena to Almeria, it really didn't look that far on the map Lol! Yes the post card with the horse is quite funny. A horse will not naturally sit like that, they either stand or lie down normally. Loving the cut out bit on the bridge stamp too, very clever. Great collection of funnies too. Have a great weekend, Angela xXx

  6. Hi Lisca, I'm not sure what is funny about that postcard either. The horse looks most uncomfortable. I understand that it is incredibly hot in Spain at the moment but you seem to be enjoying yourself despite that. Double chins are the reason I don't take selfies :) Have a wonderful weekend.
