Last time, I ended up just showing off the backsides of these eleven postcards I’ve sent out recently. Time to flip them all over! Most of these went out in Postcrossing Forum tag trades–if anything else is the case here, I’ll make note of it.
These three presidential Peanuts characters went out into the world along with my recommendation that each of them would have been a reasonable choice for my nation’s top office. The worst I could say was that Pig-Pen may be dirty–but he’s certainly not the kind of dirty we are becoming used to! That candidate went out to Mumbai, Maharashtra, India, and Charlie Brown (“He is kind & fair to everyone,” I wrote) went to Tokyo, Japan. The third candidate, Franklin (“Oh, how I wish Franklin had run! He’s such a good guy, who studies hard & is always fair”) went to my Peanuts-crazy postpal in Peacehaven, East Sussex, England.
Okay, now that we’ve seen the would-have-been candidates, let’s rush through the rest of the cards, four at a time. Which are your favorites, this time?
