In The Mail - Week 3 - Part 1

I have increased the picture size for your viewing pleasure.

Tuesday

I love ridiculous book covers. What the?



Wednesday




Hang on, if he was awake all the time, how did he miss the return of the dinosaurs? Quite a fun boxset.

Thursday

Public service recruitment jargon - what it really needs is more monkey.



Friday

A very cute cover, nicely worn.

In The Mail - Week 3 - Part 1

I really like front covers of books, either using them as a backing board, like on Duck and his Friends, or just as a card itself, like The Brave Little Duck. They are usually much stiffer than mat board, but cost the same to post.

In The Mail - Week 2

My daily mission continues. I even posted Monday's card from New South Wales because we had a holiday in Canberra for our Centenary.

I am going to post four cards tomorrow, but I will still send at least one every of the week.

the best

This is a card I made a while ago.



Behold this tree
of infinite majesty
The shade in
which we grow
The beating heart
of our nest
The place all
things rest
The tree of love
is the best.

In The Mail - Week 1

I decided to send a postcard every day for a while - not including weekends. Also, I am putting my own date stamp on them.

I will try to scan the original or handcrafted ones and at least take a photo of the others going into the postbox.

Tuesday

Oops, I didn't scan or photograph this one, but it was a homemade one to a real live communist.

I saw Part I of The Hobbit during the week and I would describe it as an "An Unexpectedly Long Adventure". At 169 minutes, there was 100 minutes of near tedium. I certainly remember the book being way more fast-paced, so it definitely seems like a commercial decision to split the movie up.

In case you were wondering, courtesy of the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary:


You can at least look forward to a weekly postcard wrap if I get round to posting nothing else.
