Snail's Postcard Post

See the States, N-Z

Here’s Part II!Nebraska(NEBRASKA) “I went to dinner with Dorothy + Henry, Margo + Steve, + Suzanne + Carolina here at the French Cafe–I ate snails6 of them. Mmm…Today went to Margo’s + saw a real cardinal–boy are they red!”Nevada(NEVADA) Big Dipper Swimming Pool, Stardust Hotel, Las VegasNew Hampshire(NEW HAMPSHIRE) Mt.
