Hi Chris,
I thought it was funny when I got your name to send to.  I read the things you like and I could be reading about myself.  Then I see your birthday and nearly fell off my chair.  LOL.  It's the same as mine.
Happy Postcrossing!  Alda

Mjasa in U.S.A. wrote you a message 0n 11/10
“Hi Chris.
Sorry for the late response.
I live in Coral Springs in southern Florida, just north of Fort Lauderdale. Yes I laughed when I read your profile, it could nearly have been my own, lol.
I come originally from Iceland but have lived here for 10 years now and I can honestly say I like the weather better here. We still get a lot of "winterbirds" down here, lol.
I would love to get a card from you, I am trying to get a state card from all the states so if you find one I would love to have it. I haven't visited all the states but I am working on that too. :)
My address is
Alda Elvarsdottir
9051 NW 1st Street
Coral Springs, FL 33071
If you would like I could send you some cards from here again.

Thank you for letting me send you this card.  I have been holding on to it for awhile waiting to send it tot he right person.  I love the irony in your last name.  I recently traveled through Arizona and got some good jackalope postcards.  Devin
