    I do, to a degree. I have several of downtown Augusta, GA in the 30's and 20's, and Bloomington, Indiana as well. Also have a few of Pekin, Illinois during that time period as well as Watertown, Wisconsin. Also I kept most of the post cards that my grandparents sent me from places out west back when I was a child and also the ones I got while I was at the Bill Rice Ranch when I was visiting here in Murfreesboro as a child. I have others.

    Not really a collector per se, but I always make sure I get several of places I visit--in case my pictures don't turn out that well. I put the postcards in the picture album w/my photos.

    I got a postcard when we were on a missions' trip to San Francisco last year. It was a picture of Haight/Ashbury Street w/a few "hippies" on it. I liked the postcard until I realized when I got home and really looked at it that one of the people in the picture was flipping the bird. I was so disappointed that I had to throw the card away--it was a cool picture--but ruined by that guy. Oh well... lol

    No, but I send them all the time (they're cheaper to send than traditional letters). When I travel, I try to look for unique ones that don't scream "this was sent by a tourist".
