Well, I have sent out the Art’s Birthday postcards; if you made it onto my mailing list, be on the lookout! Half of the group of 48 was sent out on Tuesday — the other half was sent out this (Thursday) morning. I braved an all-day downpour and made it to my local post office, just as they were about ready to lock the door! Thankfully, I managed to sweet-talk my way in — whew. (“No really, I’ll just be a second I promise…I just have to check my PO box, and put these in the bin. Really. I super-promise.”) After depositing the aforementioned cards into the mailbox, I ran back out into the rain, crossing my fingers that public transit would be good to me. It must’ve been my lucky day. A bus appeared out of (seemingly) nowhere, and in a jiffy, I was on my way home again.
Tomorrow will bring about more stamp-affixing and envelope licking, but for now I’m going to call it a night. I’ve posted a few more photos of the project on Flickr; you are welcome to take a look over there!
PS: our next post will be comprised of various titles and page numbers; it will be a veritable “what’s what” of postal lit!
