I have a lot of sheet music postcards. My hubby plays cornet, trumpet and flugelhorn. Our kids play those and piano. So everywhere in our house there is sheet music. So when I found out you could buy postcards like this, well naturally I started to hunt for them. There are a lot of great patriotic ones!

I remember that he is Ricky Ricardo's twin. :) I had no idea about the availability of sheet music postcards. I am NOT surprised that you managed to track them down. :)
