The Shenandoah postcard comes to me from Virginia, part of a swap-bot “places I’ve visited” trade. The sender tells me that she loves visiting “Big Meadow” there, that deer are everywhere. There’s something else she’s a fan of:
“I also love the gift shop. They carry the nicest postcards in the area.”
The other card came to me from Germany, via Postcrossing. I thought the little character was a squirrel, but the sender tells me it’s…
“…the Sand Man, he was in the past a TV star for toddlers. Even today he is still running in the evening program and I watch if I like to.”
Okay, but I still think it looks like a squirrel. One thing is certain: that is not Neil Gaiman’s Sandman!
Stamps! My favorite one is the sheep. Yes, I know it is not a stamp, but it is still my favorite!
