A Pair of Ciphers: Sent to Poland, Russia, & Turkey

3 New Postcrossing draws:


Pinocchio is going to a Postcrosser in Belgorodskaya, Russia, whose long list of likes includes Disney movie posters. She wanted a quote, so I gave her a favorite of mine from Groucho Marx:

“Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

That was the pleasurable part of this draw; in the case of the next two Postcrossers, I would go so far as to call them ciphers.  There are more words in one of my postcards than there are in both of their profiles combined!

The person in Kozieglowy, Poland, gets the Coplu cartoon because she mentioned “drawing,” and the member in Corlu, Turkey gets the manatees because she mentioned “animals.”  There we go!  Okay, I’ll say this in their defense: both are brand-new Postcrossers, and are about 16 years of age.  It’s to be hoped that as they go along & participate more & read more profiles, they will add more information to help others select a postcard for them, & even more importantly, learn about their lives & cultures.
