Postcard From Xmas 1988

Came across this impossibly great postcard my brother Bill sent me from London over the holidays back in 1988. (Yes, only in Britain would you find a postcard of Annabel Croft, who of course is now a television "presenter.” the U.K.'s most-ubiquitous profession.) 

The references to Kate Brasher, Shakin' Stevens, bootleg cassettes and young Madonna sure take me back, as does cat-sitting for Twinkie. I do occasionally come across old emails from friends and family, but never do they move me the way an old letter or card does. xo

Bill and the feline in question 

P.S. I happen to follow Croft on Twitter but haven't heard back about this find!
