A Little Trouble with the Scalloped Scissors: Sent to Austria, Germany, & Hong Kong

How do you keep track of your sent cards to be recorded?  These first two went out nearly three weeks ago, and have already been received & acknowledged on the other end.  The other three just hit the mailbox yesterday morning.  Several in-between are still waiting for me to record.  Ugh!

Okay, let’s do this.  If you cut into a pineapple, and found the insides were watermelon, would you be mad?  I love both fruits, but the fact I’d be happier to cut into a watermelon to discover pineappely insides tells me I prefer pineapples. This hybrid went to Giessen, Germany, in a Postcrossing draw.

The Magnum Infinity Chocolate panel also went out to Germany (Münster), but this time in a swap-bot trade of upcycled cardboard.  I’ve had some scallop-edged scissors around that I’ve been ignoring, and I decided to attempt to use them on the edges here.  HOW ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO USE THESE THINGS?  I’m thinking they are really intended for short (rather than long) cuts, as this card was longer than the scissor blades, and things got difficult toward the end of each cut.  Not extremely graceful–much like myself.

The Hearst Castle garden scene is going to Hong Kong, thanks to a Postcrossing Forum tag.  The tiger card is also off to HK, but in regular Postcrossing draw.  Finally, the touristy card is headed to Linz, Austria in the only Postcard United draw for this post.
