The only way I stand a chance of getting up-to-date is to skip forward from 1002 to 1111 which was one of yesterday’s cards.
1111 – Monica in Sweden made this card, received 25th November 2013, from her own photos. Or perhaps, arguably, it’s a photo not a card but since it has a message on the back and is certainly worth blogging I’m counting it. It’s a lot clearer and more attractive than many a postcard you buy in the shops.
The envelope it came in contained other things and the stamps were fantastic. So much wildlife…
1112 – Another card from Monica, this is one of the Lennart Helje cards. It’s called Snårlvinter which doesn’t really translate into English since the literal translation ‘mean winter’ suggests something a lot deeper in snow and ‘skimpy winter’ or ‘scrimpy winter’ don’t convey very much. So we’ll settle for Snårlvinter.
Helje’s little Brownie was on the very first (ugh – ‘the very first’ - horrible expression. I mean, of course, simply ‘the first’.) card that I put on a postcard blog – see here.
1113 – From Eva in Morocco came this card of Tangier. On the left is Hercules’s cave.
It is said to be the shape of Africa, which, if you turn it round, I think it is.
So presumably if you look inwards from outside it looks Africa-shaped but that would be so much less impressive.
