"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"

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

Never mind cars or actors, the original Chevy Chase is a ballad about a fourteenth century battle in the Cheviot Hills of northern England

Chevy chasing to "Lewis and Clark" info for Valentine...

(or "Clark and Lewis"? naw)

Google up Lewis and Clark Expedition, during the time of Thomas Jefferson?

And 'would like to know what "wheels" has Brad :-)

VMH - A "Chevy Chase" is not an automobile, but rather, an action known as a police pursuit.

Comment by John Gayer on October 27, 2020 at 12:23pm

Having drifted in and out of the Washington DC, I recognised The National Museum building. It is now part of the Smithsonian Institution and called the Arts and Industries Building. Regarding Chevy Chase, there are 3 that I know of. One in DC, another just across the district/state line in Maryland, and the American comedian/actor, who's real name is Cornelius Crane Chase. Could there be others?

1. Public School, Chevy Chase, DC

And there I was thinking a 'Chevy Chase' was a Chevrolet model -- but Bradford is our expert on all car (aka automobile) matters, and I'm sure he will have something to say about it.

2. Grand Canyon view

"Looking South from Turkey Path at Pennsylvania's Grand Canyon located 10 miles from Wellsboro", it says on the back. Looking at it in front of me, all I can see is a big tree and lots of tree-covered hills.

3. National Museum, Washington

One of the 'Nation's Capital Choicest Views', it '.. contains the Government collections, comprising millions of objects of scientific and artistic interest, collected from all quarters of the globe.'

It also has a big tree in front of it.
