1963 Postcards - Marianne & Weegie

A special week at the New Vienna Post Office in 1963 brought two postcards.  The postcard postage rate in 1963 was 4¢, though Marianne used a 5¢ stamp which was then the letter rate.  Those rates were in effect until 1968.  Marianne included the PO Box but not the zip code.  Transcriptions follow.

Dear Catherine,
Having a nice time up here.  I've seen some symphony orchestras, plays, movies, recitals, and a style show and so forth.
How's N.V. and all that goes with it! Ha!
Received 2 letters from you.  What a surprise!
Should be back in Fla. around the 22nd.
Love, Marianne
