Hello Bonniediva,

I'm collecting these Postcards for an IUOMA Exhibition, or two. So send me what you can spare -- the more Boring the Better -- as I am the self-appointed Boring Postcard Guardian.

I will 'spruce' up the least Boring, or send you something else back, but really I am collecting and cosolidating these Postcards and not really passing them on. But, as with Heleen and the sheep, there are exceptions; Regards, Val

Thank you in advance, Val! As long as you think it boring you should not te-post it. But if the beauty and deepness of this card is suddenly unveiled for you, yes please, do! Otherwise I can post it there as soon as I’ll have received it.

p.s. My first boring (?) postcard to you is on his way. Two ewe, er, to you.

5BORING BLACK & WHITE AND ONE COLOURED FRENCH POSTCARDS

1. Napoleon's Bridge (Luz St Sauver)

Napoleon may have built this bridge, but if he took this photo of it he didn't do a very good job, as there's only a bit of his bridge there and a lot of sky and trees.

2.The Seine (at Chataou)Nice willow tree. Disappearing barges; And that's about all

3. The forest at Franchard, Fontainbleau (Seine et Marne)

It could be a forest anywhere, but we will take Guy's word that it's the Franchard forest.

4. 'Deputé Jean Hay' ferry (Ile d'Oleron (Ch.-Mrne)

The ferry is going from Le Chapus to Ors, or Ors to Le Chapus, one of which can be seen on the horizon on the right, and the Postcard was sent in 1957. (I can't find out anything about Jean Hay).

5; The Illuminations, Place de la Concorde, Paris

Very illuminating. ('Is that all you can say about this one, Val?' 'Yes'.)

6. ECOLE NATIONALE SUPERIERE AGRONOMIQUE DE RENNES

As it's a national French educational establishment, it has to be 'supérieure' -- which causes me to wonder if there is an 'inférieure' one somehere.

Not boring at all, Val, in contrary: interesting! I love those sheep, so if this card still is available, and not compostated / buried under any boredom, please send it to me and I will send you a really bored/boring postcard in return! (I’ll send you a postcard or two anyway :-) )

Five Boring Sheep and one Bored Shepherd (somewhere in France)

Baaaa.

Comment by Valentine Mark Herman on August 16, 2020 at 5:27am

Thanks Alan. The back of he card clearly says, in English, 'Tiger Palm Garden', but it could be a mis-spelling. It also says something in an Oriental script with which I am not familiar.

May all your tigers be balmy. And barmy.

RIP (Rest In Pastis)
