    Did anyone else check out the number 47 lady on the postacrds?
    The name on it is Leo 1128

    Anyone else think she is the best looking one of them all?
    which brings me to the question
    who is the best looking lady in the postcards from the past?
    for me I like number 47

    I'd prefer it if she was wearing the outfit from #29

    # 20 gets my vote. She's been on my computer screen for several years now. When I was on the road, she was the only woman I saw on a regular basis.

    What I think is funny is how on #16 she's looking at the stamp like "why would someone do that?" and on #26 it dont look like the honey is buying the old "come on baby, I play the mandolin" seduction bit.And the chick on #48 reminds me of mimi on the drew cary show. ha

    OK, OK, I want to post a picture of me (at the risk of being called Mimi) the first time I played the mandolin. A friend(?) of mine just gave it to me tonight. How do I put a picture here?

    In your reply post, just above where the "Add Reply" button is, there is a white box and a "Browse..." button where it says "You may attach a file to this message. Maximum file size (in bytes): 102400." Hit the browse button to find the pic on your computer and then you can add it.

    I'm surprised that we haven't seen any pics of Lorraine Doucet, Rhonda Vincent or the woman in the Webber ads. I can't remeber her name, but one of the sisters in the McLain Family Band played mandolin and would have made a pretty post card. All of these women really are players, not just someone holding the mando for a picture.
