Holiday Special II: Peanuts on a Wreath

Nothing to do with snail mail, except I guess for the fact that I do happen to send & receive a lot of Peanuts postcards.  I promise the upcoming holiday specials will include snail mail.

Unless I change my mind.

A “close your eyes & grab one” swap. The recipient could certainly have ended up with worse! Translation: I hope to get more “close your eyes & grab one” swaps.

To California:

This again! 3rd out of a limited edition of 500. Unless those creeps at the print shop ran off a few hundred thousand more & are selling them to shops around the globe.

I was able to step up my game stamp-wise: for the in-country cards, I found some aloha shirt stamps with the old, 32-cent rate, and some penny stamps to get to the required 34-cent total.  A little stamp collection on a card!

Actually, there are new things going on for me on the international stamp front, too: since the post office I go to most often never keeps a very large stock of international stamps, I finally ordered some online–and got winter solstice wreaths!
