Received from Canada & the United States

Two in via swap-bot, in art or illustrated postcard trades:


“Cheers” by Alexander Wolf; “Rhumba Band II” by Lill Tschudi.

The card at top comes from Canada, and the sender jokes that the mice are some fairy tale side show characters, most frequently appearing in pub scenes.

This is downright chatty compared to the writing on the back of the bottom card, which came from somewhere around Houston, Texas.  Here is the entire message:

Hi John,


(name of swap-bot trade, as required)

(swap-bot user name, as required)

Looks happy!

Well, that was definitely less fun than a barrel of monkeys.  I am, as I’ve said, not into this to collect postcards or stamps, but to experience the joy of snail mail, which I thought might include brief peeks into other lives, places, and cultures.  And so it does, so I will shut up–for now.
