|06:24 pm - Postcard mystery continues|
Here now the most recent postcards I've received from my postcard admirer:
1. Picture of Cyd Charisse dancing in a flowy thing. Nothing on the back. Postmark was, sadly, washed off by the rain so I have no idea where it "came from."
2. The Pont Neuf in Paris. I've been there! I saw that. Postmarked Lexington, KY, about as far from Paris as one can get, it seems. On the back is written "PONT REFLETE" with a few accents over the Es which I am not about to bother playing around with the numpad to get.
3. This is the weird one. Postmarked Australia, April 8. Sent air mail. The front has a subject dear to me, classic roadside architecture. A building in the shape of a teapot with the word "EAT" on the side. (Also a sign denoting "LADIES" next to a door, which leads one to believe it could've been a comfort station of sorts.) Dated 1939. The written caption has to do with the serving of Chun Mee Organic Green Tea.
You've intrigued me something fierce, Postcard Admirer. I am curious to see where this goes next.

Seems you're Griffin to someone's Sabine.
If that's the case, the stamps would be much, much more ornate.
OK, so have you found a pattern yet? Is there ANYTHING connecting them?
I'm tempted to start sending them myself, just to throw you off the scent.
I'm way ahead of you, HM.
Children, children, the handwriting would give you away.
that's so cool . . . i wish i had a postcard admirer. or got any kind of cool mail, actually.
