The Postcard

Dear Jane:

I read your article about my trip in the newspaper.  It was a very good article.  

I'm in Mexico right now and I come home tomorrow.  I'm in a restaurant eating delicious Mexican food and drinking a margarita.  The Mariachi band just started playing a song.  After dinner I'm going to walk on the beach. 

I had a great trip but I'm a little tired.  Tomorrow I'll sleep in my own bed.  

See you soon!

Phil Andrews
