Lenticular Piggies!

Yo, I ordered a vintage 1966 lenticular postcard of the 'Three Little Pigs' - and it came, today. I am pleased with this thing on a whole lot of levels.

Not only is it one of my all-time favorite children stories, the image and the lenticular imaging just brings back my childhood. And it came out the year I was born (as did Star Trek, the Super Bowl, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas, by-the-way). '66 rocks and so does this postcard!

Expired Postcards

It's that time of year, again.

My first two years postcrossing, I found that I cannot end the year without addressing my expired postcards, and this year is no different.

I have nine of them. These were the cards I was supposed to send right after I ended up in the hospital last June/July.

A lot of postcards got lost in the shuffle last summer, so I am going to spend this afternoon getting to know those postcrossers again (by their profiles of course), picking new postcards for each of them, writing or drawing something on them - and getting them mailed out.

...And then there is the package I need to finish for a midwest city gnome who makes me smile.

So today, I get this card here...
It is from Monica in the Czech Republic. I had to look this little guy up. The Mole, by Zdenek Miler. I found this terrific little video...

Totally awesome. Mole and Radiohead.

Postcard Geek Heaven!

I just love good mail. Today, I got 265 brand new postcards. Plus, a pack of 20 came on Monday. That should be enough cards to last me through June!
