First time I ever did this, let me know if I should do anything differently...
This is such a neat idea! My mother collects old postcards, so I immediately knew they were authentic. I just love your story and everything you are doing!
These look great! Where on earth did you find them? Thanks for putting them up - they've cheered me up no end this evening. xoxo

I would love to know where these cards can be found
Oh, these are so lovely. I found myself laughing and getting choked up at the same time. Whatever trouble you had to go through to get these on your LJ was worth it. I enjoyed them immensely, as I do your story. Thanks you!!
Thanks! Glad you liked them and the story. It was easy to do once I figured it out the first time. I'm having scanner problems now... but can put more up when that gets figured out.
These old postcards are amazing! Thank you for sharing them with us. :D PS. They came out just fine.
Your very welcome. I had fun putting them up! Glad they look okay.
these are great!! and the comments are just.. fabulous. can't even pick a fav one. glad u put them up!!
I had a blast putting them up. Can't take credit for what's written on the back -- just copied it off. ;)
Those are great! It's incredible how well they fit both your fanfic and the original story. I'll never look at old postcards the same way!
Thank you so much for you comments!
Glad to see these! Thank you so much for sharing them!
These are fantastic thank you for sharing Ed and Hanks postcards with all of us. I think they are just so wonderful and well you know they make me gush out all over. Joe
I bet it's the one with the cowboy in the bathtub... ;)

So awesome !!
Thank you very much for sharing them.
OH these are just awesome! Did the postcards inspire the fic or did the fic remind you that you had the postcards? Either way, they're just perfect! And I love the recurring 'having a terrible time, wish you were here' phrase. Says it all while saying nothing incriminating at all! You are a genius!!!
BTW and OT: I always read your username as 'Saint Blue' LOL! The new patron saint of Brokeback fan fiction, maybe??
These are fabulous and the comments suit them perfectly, although they are very sad too. I'm even more keen to see "them other ones" that make Ed blush ;0) Thanks for sharing these with us.
Thanks and you're very welcome! Little worried 'bout them other ones. Started to get them together and they made me blush! Still having scanner problems, but hopefully they'll be up soon...
Perfect, these are absolutely perfect! What Hank wrote on them is perfect! Ed must have treasured each and every one. Getting new one in the mail must have made his day each time.
Hi City Girl!
Thanks! I always appreciate your comments. And you're right, it really gave Ed something to look forward to. And kept Hank on his mind, which is exacty what Hank wanted. ;)

Well Did You Ever
Did you ever imagine that you'd be using your antique post card collection in such a creative way!? I do see these old postcards in antique stores if people want to begin their own collection. That Hank gets extra points for "creative use" of postcards, and for being persistant. I know he's amply rewarded; got Ed for his very own, after all. But he worked it just right. So happy for them.
Thanks! Hank always likes getting those "extra points". Glad you like the postcards. Should be posting more soon. Worried "them other ones" might be a bit too graphic for Ed and Hank. We'll see... ;D
"Ed for his very own" All Hank ever wanted!
Okay. I love you & all. Nothing new.. but THESE.. these are amazing, brilliant, just... wow.. I'm in awe of you, of these.. and I would absolutely LOVE to own a copy of a few of these myself! perhaps we could discuss you sending them my way? *puppy dog eyes*
Of course you can have copies of any you'd like! Somehow I think you're gonna want that south view of that cowboy facing north....
I'm going to be putting up part two of the postcards later today probably. (Or tomorrow.) So you may want to wait and see if you'd like any of those too.
Still very new to all this. I have them all saved as jpeg files at high, but not maximum resolution. Is that o.k.? Easy enough to re-scan if it's not. May have to anyway, 'cause I think some of them are a bit tilted.
I assume the way to do it is to email them to you as an attachment(?) Let me know if there's any other way I don't know about... My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
