What a cool haul this time around!
Take a gander at that gander! The Gladstone Gander card came to me from San Francisco, California, from a friend who recently took a trip to Italy. I love my souvenir.
From somewhere near Taichung City, Taiwan, I received that delicious-looking doubled layer roll. The card is the one Postcrossing item in today’s lot, and it traveled 19 days and 6,555 miles to get to me. Its sender writes, in part:
“I want to try every country’s special food. So I am wait. Wait for one day I have enough money to go around the world! OH!!! HEY! Please promise me you will not eat this postcard! Just kidding!”
Ending with more edibles, there is the recipe cut from a box of Chex cereal. This came to me from St. Paul, Minnesota, thanks to one of those swap-bot “chunk o cardboard” trades I love so much. The sender tells me, “when I make Chex Mix I skip the nuts and pretzels. I am a Chex separatist.” Looking around my place, I have no Chex. Do you suppose I could make do with Cheerios, Golden Grahams, and corn flakes?
Stamps! I vote yes on the flowers, especially the lehua, and a great big huge NO on the clown.
