#8 Shesa-Renegade checking in with more received postcards this past week!
#2 @CrimsonKing sends a gorgeous vintage-looking card of a seed packet for cosmos. They are such beautiful flowers. I really struggle sometimes growing from seed, even my veggies. It can be so frustrating!
#3 @Cruzin sends a gorgeous postcard of Princess Diana that is a painting. Thank you for sending me this lovely card and having your FIL pick this up. I’ve never seen any that are like this.
#6 @mikeyz1 Oh, how I do love this card about pre-EPA America! I am taking this in to show my friend who I teach a sustainability course with. Glad to hear your semester is going well so far. Like you, I was able to get back into the introductory classroom (physical geology) and I love every moment in there!
#7 @mere5oh sends a fun card of “Who Dung It?” HAHA this is great! On my vacation this year I bough a book about poo for a friends son. He has them scouring the neighborhood now looking at poo. It’s a good thing she’s such a great friend.
#9 @akap25 sends a great card of the University of Washington. I love that you have started putting yourself first and learning something new every day. Here is a fact for you for today - rocks that have been subjected to great amounts of pressure often have mineral grains that rotate in the solid state (meaning they don’t melt). Those rotated grains form structures that look like eyes and are called “augen,” which is German for eye. I’m teaching my students about them tomorrow, so it was one of the first things that came to mind.
#12 @Yarn-Lady sends a delicious card with macaroons and tea. Baked goods, especially cookies, tend to be my downfall. I can have a cake in the house no problem, but cookies are gone quickly!
#13 @ladybug513 sends a card with an illustrated whale shark from Cancun. One of these days I really want to see one of these creatures. I hope that your cleaning went well. I am still being lazy here…haha.
#14 @dnrhott sends an adorable card of a kitten looking into a mirror and seeing a tiger with “This is your year - year of the tiger.” Aww…melts my heart it is so adorable.
#15 @ad7yn sends an illustrated card of Siena. My favorite Colin Firth movie is either Bridget Jones (he loves her wobbly bits) or The King’s Speech (because he is just so amazing in that movie). Up is one of my top 3 movies of all time. I never noticed the shapes so much (but will now). I love Carl because his features look so much like my grandfather, whom I miss dearly. Kevin is my favorite character.
#16 @jacieslar sends a card of an orca from Seattle. I hate cleaning house! There are so much more fun things I could be doing, like writing postcards. Today we hit 101* and set a record. I tried not to go outside from my office all day. Tomorrow we are supposed to have a cool front come through and it is only supposed to be 85* or so.
#18 @LaurenceB sends a fun pink octopus on a bright green background. This color combo was the color of my bedroom growing up! I am so happy that you are done with your studies; however, something tells me that you are a lifelong learner and will never truly be done learning. Enjoy those children! The time goes so quickly. One day they are 2, the next they are 20.
#21 @Beachyblonde sends a fun fact card that tells me that female seals are called cows and males are called bulls. Here’s a fact (don’t tell the postcard people) but the picture on the front is actually a sea lion and not a seal. You can see his/her little ears, and you can’t see them on seals. Shhhh…our secret.
#23 @suatelier sends a card of cold, snowy Montreal. I hope that you had a fabulous time at the engagement party! It sounds like great fun.
#25 @sleepyhippo1 sends a card filled with illustrated dogs! The humidity in my area is horrible. You almost can’t stand being outside in the summer.
#28 @TwoDoggies sends a hilarious card from “The Snooty Bookshop” and this one made me laugh out loud! I’ve met a lot of those kinds of folks over the years. I don’t think that I’d like that book at all that you described on the card. Where is the barf emoji? haha
#29 @melvnoble sends a vintage linen card of the library in her hometown…and her best friend works there! What a great combo. Jealous!!
#30 @RockyRoadTrip sends a card of two views of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. There is no postmark on here and wonder if it was sent on the day she died. I totally get not understanding the obsession over royalty, but I guess for me it is a life I would never know. And as for the king that you mentioned on your card - bite your tongue, Sir! HAHAHA (please do not let that scenario ever happen)
