Valentine I like these questions and think similar thoughts when I find homemade crafts at thrift stores

Is this Greta Thunbergon this Boring Postcard?

The "military monument"  is a monument to the founders of Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico.  The Motel 6 card is of a motel in St. Louis, Missouri, usa

Dear 23 Skidoo and Artbyjac,

Yep, these issues arise in our souls and elsewhere.

Look at what I said at the start of this Group

"What makes a Postcard Boring? I have given considerable thought as to what makes a Postcard Boring – or not – and would like to share my ideas with you. When confronted with a Boring Postcard, I ask myself a number of questions. First, why did a photographer want to make a Postcard of this subject? Second, why did some printer and some seller think they could make money from this Boring Postcard? Third, why did anyone buy this Boring Postcard? Fourth, what message – visual or verbal – did the sender of the Boring Postcard mean to convey? And fifth, what on earth did the recipient of the Boring Postcard make of the image?"

Yes, it’s deep disguised meaning—and I do mean deep—lurches through my soul trailing dust and misdiagnosis.

Skidoo.. Amazing that someone took the time to take the pic and produce this

In idle hours I have pondered the reason for this postcard’s existence. Yes, hours. Pity me.
