Still a lot of catch-up to do on the documentation side of things. Heck, with all the holiday rush-about (yeah, I’ll blame that), now I have a lot of catch-up to do on postcards I am due to send out!
Eagle Huntress went to Laurel, Maryland, for a swap-bot trade of movie/TV postcards. I haven’t seen this film, but I picked up the card at a local independent theater.
Goosey Goosey Gander’s castle went to Hong Kong, in a Postcrossing draw.
Hula Kitty (not Hello Kitty) went to Moscow, Russia, the city I drew in Postcard United. The recipient must not have written much about herself, because I went the dastardly route of talking about the weather. I try never, ever to do that. It’s like the saying goes: everyone’s talking about the weather, but no one’s doing anything about it.
Entering the black & white postcard zone, all from a book of NYC photography I found at a library book sale. Some people just love b&w photography. Me, not so much, at all. Not that I want my old movies & TV series colorized (I DON’T), but I’m just glad rich full color is how we see things these days.
Grand Central headed off to Shanghai, China. This is actually a resend: I heard from someone whom I’d tagged in Postcrossing Forum some time ago, asking if I’d sent him the card. I had, but I still don’t want him to miss out. He’s a train lover, and I’d previously sent him a Skunk Train card–but I am out, and Grand Central was the closest I had to a train card. By the way, there is a “train of lights” nearby this holiday season, all lit up, and with Santa aboard. I’ve taken the ride 2-3 times, but honestly? Well, look at the pics: all the joy is on the outside! This is also why all of my holiday decoration efforts are focused on the inside of my home, where I can enjoy the fruits of my labor.
The ship shot was a Postcrossing draw, off to Riga, Latvia. The recipient must not have written much about himself, because I went the dastardly route of talking about the weather. I try never, ever to do that. It’s like the saying goes: everyone’s talking about the weather, but no one’s doing anything about it.
Whoa–I’m feeling all déjà vu-y right now. Are YOU feeling all déjà vu-y right now?
The Guggenheim Museum went to Beijing, China, thanks to a Postcard United draw. The recipient likes movies, reading, & travel–and so do I!
Barney Gumble from “The Simpsons” went to Mumbai, India, in a Postcrossing Forum tag trade. The recipient noted that she likes this show, and I remembered that somehow I happened to have this card. I told her that as far as I can remember, the last time I saw “The Simpsons” was when the movie came out–back in 2007! My favorite thing about that movie was how some 7-Eleven stores were turned into Kwik-E-Marts!
