Received from: Israel & U.S.A.

Some real winners in this batch received through swap-bot trades!

Wow!

Let’s start with Israel, then work our way around the U.S.  The top right card is the one that made that trip: the card loaded with pink toy awesomeness.  I actually have one of those, a King Ken, although mine is cuter–and travels. This was part of a “postcard and a quote” trade, and bore this message from the great Douglas Adams:

“He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.”

Cool stamps, too:

Our tour around the U.S. starts at the bottom right, and the Finding Nemo card, which came to me from California.

The beautiful lions were also sent to me from California, where the sender has recently visited the San Diego Wild Animal Park (now officially known as the San Diego Zoo Safari Park).

WOW, look at the card on that came my way from Spokane, Washington, decorated with Arale from Doctor Slump!  I’m a big fan of this hilarious manga, which is by Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball fame. Spokane WA #5

Also from the state of Washington is the bird-laden top-center card.  It bears this quote by Deanne Wadsworth:

“Four things you can’t recover:
The stone after the throw,
The word after it’s said,
The occasion after it’s missed,
The time after it’s gone.”
