In the new Guide, the story has the flowers receiving post cards from other flowers across the globe. I sent an email out to all of the parents (and posted a request on a couple message boards I belong to) asking if anyone has any friends/family living overseas.

You will look forward to your troop meetings if everyone gets along (at least most of the time!)
