THREE MORE FRO MIKEL -- THANKS ONCE AGAIN!

1. Musée de Cluny, Paris, France

One of my favourite Paris Musées -- strongly recommended by moi

2. Monument Valley, AZ

Never been there. looks a bit scarey. 'Lightning strikes again, and again, and again'

3.Carter Fountain, Wellington, New Zealand

"This spectacular fountain was donated to the people of Wellington by Mr H.A. Carter in memory of his parents. It is illuminated by high-powered flood-lights and plays in a 15 minute cycle with the main column rising to 46m (150ft)".

It also has a twin in Geneva. Do two fountains each with one cycle make a bicycle?

Bonjour Gang, I think I've got a title (and subtitle) for my book:

WISH YOU WERE HERE --NOT! A Collection of Boring Postcards

It's very similiar to Nancy Nosegay's suggestion (see my comment on it from yesterday, but i) I've add a 'NOT!', and 'Collection' is better than 'Compendium', the latter referring to a complete listing.

More about the book later.

EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK FROM HEIDE MONSTER

Thanks Heide for this Lost and Found Boring and Interesting Postcard

Why did you loose it, Val?

It got lost amongst the 600 Postcards I'm sorting out and writing about. But I found it!

Do you often loose things, Val?

Yes, all the time. I once lost my 6-year old sister on a beach in Italy. the police found her, she was safe, and returned to the hotel

Why is this an Interesting Postcard, Val?

Because it has a Real Rock'n'Roll US Post Office "Return to Sender" label on the back.

Dear Heide, My postcode is 11130, not 1130 -- just in case you send me something again. Regards, Val

Thanks everyone!

Nancy: I have a chapter called "Wish yiu were here -- Not." It includes Boring Postcards including a young offender's prison, someone being treated in a hospital, a hospital ward, an island on fire, etc. I was considering using "Wish..." as the title, but with the word "Not". I like your subtitle too.

No decision yet.

"Dear Postcard"

Comment by Nancy Nosegay on November 2, 2020 at 7:29pm

another title suggestion:

"Wish You Were Here? : A Compendium of Boring Postcards"

Comment by John Gayer on November 2, 2020 at 9:28am

Nothing like contributing to a brainstorming session: 

Postcards Past Their Best By Date: A Collection

Commonplaceness and Uninterestingness: A Postcard Collection

Poetically Pointless Postcards

You've asked a title for your book, I suggest:

"when life looks boring - postcards tales".

We live and learn, Alan. The Hills are about 80 miles from where I was born and bred
