Don't Shake the Flask

Because you don't know if it'll explode

Month of Letters: Day 26

The first postcard today is going to someone in Germany who is having a postcard contest with their parent to see who will get the most cards with a specific theme. That theme is “mother and child” and fortunately, I had a gorilla postcard with a baby riding on its mother’s back. I knew that if I had any chance of finding a postcard matching that theme in my stash it would have to be animal related. The only reason I have any postcards with people on them are because those were on sale when I got them. (If I’m going to pay full price, it had better be something that I personally like a lot. And I’m not a fan of human baby pictures in general.) The second postcard is a special one I obtained when I had visited Yosemite; it’s going to another person in Germany, this time for a specialized amphibian “tag”. The third postcard is part of a book of postcards on Frank Lloyd Wright–it’s going to a Canadian for an architecture tag.

Month of Letters: Day 14

First up today is a birthday postcard to someone in Russia. I honestly didn’t know the artist of this postcard (Lucia Mathews) until I obtained this postcard. Apparently you can see this at the Oakland Museum, but when I was last there, the exhibits were different so this must have been in storage. The second postcard of some trees in Yosemite is for a tree-themed “tag” going to someone in Japan. The third postcard is an Ed Hardy design going to someone in Germany who likes snakes. I find that an unusual request–many people specifically request no snakes due to phobias.

Postcard #285 – From Yosemite

Yes, I’m finally getting to a postcard I sent to myself! There’s a post office in Yosemite, so I couldn’t resist sending something from there.
