One of the very nicest things about my compulsive editing of this online internet variety show is that sometimes people give me stuff. And I like being given stuff. I like stuff.
Three or four people sent or gave me boring postcards over the holidays, for instance. In due course, these will of course be featured in installments of the beloved Thursday and Sunday Boring Postcard feature.
But there was other stuff, too! Regular commenter Elaine sent this copy of the Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs 1959 Calendar!
Having determined from a perpetual calendar that 2015 will be the same as 1959, I look forward to using my highly excellent date book in just a little under four years!
Then, lurker Thom, from the British Isles, sent along this outrageously awesome 1953 Ordnance Survey map of North Wales.
I do not know Thom from Adam, so he had no way of knowing that this map covers some of my and Mrs.5000's favorite travel memories, not to mention some of our favorite place names.
Also, old Ordnance Survey maps are mad pretty.
Plus, there was an item from regular commenter Elizabeth that... well, that we'll probably treat that one in a post of its own one of these days. But you get the point, I hope. Which is that I like it when people send me stuff!
