I read recently that the U.S. Postal Service is losing money each year, so I'm going to do my part by resuming THE GREAT POSTCARD EXCHANGE on www.postcrossing.com. And you, dear reader, will get to see the results. Lucky you!
I relate personally to the card below. I think it explains my personality very well.
Does anyone remember 1972? Unfortunately, I do. If you were in Montreal at the time and drove up the Rue Peel, this is what you would have seen.
How about something a little sunnier? And in such an unexpected place - Russia!
This is a view of the Moika River, which is only 40 miles long. It encircles the central part of St. Petersburg. Did you know that St. Petersburg is called "The Venice of the North"? The city is built almost entirely on a series of over 40 islands.
Many famous people have been associated with St. Petersburg over the centuries. For example, the Russian actress Vera Fyodorovna Komissarzhevskaya was born there in 1864. I hope she didn't have to write her name on her gym shoes.
I'm sure there was a reason for the next picture, but I'm not sure what it was.
It's just dying for a caption, isn't it? However, this photo leaves me nearly speechless, so it will remain unlabeled. I'm just glad I wasn't there.
I'm really more of a cat person, but if you'd like to see some very cute and funny dog photos, check out these on the AnimalSpace site.
My intention is to post regularly to this blog, but you know, that turtle-ish thing and all.....
