A Postcard Parade


 . . . commentary to follow.














 I've spent 20 minutes reading about Hattiesburg! I can dream about walking up and down, across, and sideways on Chocolate Avenue. Blindfolded. I've never been to a national park. Old Faithful would probably erupt if I visited. It's be like Pompeii all over again. (sigh)

Have to have a look-see at postagram. Leave it to Randall to discover a different fun side of postcards. Thank you, Randall. Each card is a piece of treasure. I'm so glad you missed the trauma in Chattanooga. 

I'd like to ride that cha-cha! All those daylilies. Goodness! I wonder if there are nightlilies. If there are, they'd be ghost-white like the moonflowers I enjoy growing. 

I (used to) love a parade! Now it's just too hot and dangerous. Postcard parades are better, unless you're in the parade.

  1. Lovely variety of postcards.

    Hershey, Pennsylvania, is on my list of places I want to visit. I understand the smell of chocolate permeates the entire town. How fabulous is that?

    1. I'm so touched that Randall thought of me. I do like a nice postcard. :)

      I always think of hot chocolate when I see the name Hershey, PA., but I wonder if one would get sick of smelling chocolate every day. It must be really fabulous for the residents, that's for sure.

      I hope you get your wish. :)

  3. So I can write to you just to indulge in my love of decorating envelopes? I love snail mail and only have a few friends who I write to so this would be a great outlet!

    1. Can you write to me just to indulge your love of decorating envelopes? Absolutely, positively, right on! And write on. I'm about a month behind with my replies, but I do write back when I'm in my write mind.

      You're fortunate you know, 'cause "some" letter-writing friends are better than none. :D

      I look forward to hearing from you.

    1. Aren't they just? It's like looking over Randall's shoulder. :) It's my pleasure to share. Share and share alike, right?

  5. Sorry ladies but the Hershey Factory in PA closed in 2012. Now in Mexico. The original building is still there in PA, but the tour is a "re-creation" at best. No chocolate smells.

    1. Wow. I had no idea. Why? An American institution moved across the border? Is America selling itself out? I will never eat another Hershey bar. Or Kisses. Well, I might have to never bake another German Chocolate cake either. No wonder the American economy limps and lists.

      Thanks, Cynthia. And how are you? :)

    2. That is so depressing, but better to know than to actually go there, only to be extremely disappointed. Thanks for letting us know!

    3. I wonder if they make note of the fact on postcards and travel brochures? And I agree with you.
