I've joined Maria's Linky of 'Postcards for The Weekend' at Connections to the World - an invitation to all postcard lovers to share their cards - this week's theme is - Postal/Mail Related Items. Next weekend's will be Children. For details of the launch see this page on Maria's blog. All postcard bloggers are invited to join.4117 - from Sini in Finland. I collected postcards as a child and still have some of those from that era. Since it was Postcrossing that fairly recently renewed my interest in collecting postcards this seems an appropriate one to start this blog post with.
4144 - from Eva in Spain who informed me that the word 'post' in Arabic was not well written.
And this was one of its stamps - most appropriate.
4113 - from Irina in Russia - an airmail box.
4155 - from Katya and her Mum, Marina, in Ukraine. This is Pechkin the mailman based on the book book 'Uncle Fedya, His Dog, and His Cat' by Eduard Uspensky. Uncle Fedya or Uncle Fyodor is a very independent six year old city boy, "a boy on his own". After his mother forbids him from keeping his talking cat Matroskin, Uncle Fyodor runs away from home to live on his own. He and his friends arrive at the village Prostokvashino, where a house is provided for them. There is a lot of extra space in the house, and therefore the local dog Sharik was called to fill it; he joined them cheerfully and amicably. Uncle Fyodor's parents became very agitated at the loss of their son, and even put out a missing persons notice in the paper … Such a notice couldn't pass the nose of the extremely curious mail carrier Pechkin, who right then and there declared his hopes to earn a reward for the boy's safe return — a new bicycle.
Thanks Maria at Connections to the World for hosting this Linky.
