CORRECT THEM: Sent to China, Finland, Hong Kong, & Japan

As I attempt to catch up from several months of near-inactivity, I’m trying to complete some posts I started weeks ago–in an attempt to keep up. Now I have to back up, trying to find a few of the details to fill in some blanks. I feel like this post kinda gets an “incomplete” grade, but let’s get it out of the way so that we can move on. I think there’s some fun stuff here.

This stamp collection went to Hong Kong

Cap’n Crunch went to Yotsukaido, Japan. Some foods are healthier as postcards, no? By the way, if you ever hear anyone refer to this product as “Captain Crunch,” CORRECT THEM.

This one went to Sagamihara, Japan.

Lucy went to Guiyang, Guizhou, China.

I really love that era of Peanuts characters. That’s one of my favorite cards, right there.

It’s the Cap’n again! He set off for Pudasjärvi, Finland.

Peanuts-Gram! Received from Japan

Wow, take a look at this full envelope I received from a Postcrosser in Sagamihara, Kanagawa, Japan! She tagged me in a forum “favourites” tag for that fish card, but then stuffed that envelope with Snoopy Museum goodness!

She knew (from a card I’d sent her) that I love Pig-Pen, so she included him near the return address, and then she drew a picture of the Pig-Pen soap she’d seen at the Snoopy Museum. By the way, I recently visited the less-flashy Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California.  They currently have a tiny Pig-Pen exhibition.  No soap in the gift shop–but there are wee bottles of hand sanitizer!

Look at the Lucy & Schroeder comic strip below.  My favorite versions of the characters!

This #1 sheet below was printed with a green background.  Don’t know why it scanned white… maybe I should take my scanner off “professional” setting.
