Received from Charlotte Hall, Maryland

The day I was assigned my first male recipient for a postcard on swap-bot, I received my very first postcard from a male swap-bot user!  This confirms that there are at least 3 of us using the service.

The first thing I noticed was the large grouping of old stamps!


Apparently the guy is-or-was a stamp collector, and is now using his collection to decorate & deliver his postcards! The only one I remember seeing is the bicentennial star.

This card is part of the “What are you reading?” swap-bot trade I mentioned before.  The sender of this card is rereading Anna Karenina, and says he’d “…never been struck by how much compassion & sympathy are in the writing.”


No, this is not a portrait in the hallway of Disney’s Haunted Mansion! It’s a painting of Anna Karenina by Heinrich Matvejevich Maniser. I don’t know why she’s doing that “propping up my triple-chin” pose I see in so many real-estate agent self-promo flyers.

Should I dive in and read the book?  After I finish the book I’m reading on The Art of Jay Ward Productions, of course.
