The Wednesday Post
Recent Acquisitions to the Michael and Mrs.5000 Boring Postcard Collection
Gleaned from the Greater Portland Postcard & Paper Collectibles Show, February 2011
Thanks to La Gringissima for the tip-off.
PATTERSON ENGINEERING LABORATORY
Mississippi State University
Greetings from Gowanda, N. Y.
3515 Garden City Bank and Trust Co. Building, San Jose, California
On the Road of a Thousand Wonders
[I am unclear if the GCB&T Building is considered one of the Thousand Wonders. -M5K]
JAKE CHRISTIANSEN STADIUM
Moorhead, Minnesota 56560
A breath-taking creation of golden symmetry, this unique decoration stands 16 beautiful inches tall. Gilt paint covers unusual pasta shapes on an intricate cone of boucle lace. A garland of golden mesh braid spirals the tree which rests on special lusterfoam base. Silver Filigree Fantasy Tree pictured also available. Another original giftcraft kit by National Handcraft Institute.
CHESAPEAKE BAY BRIDGE-TUNNEL
Entrance to Thimble Shoal Tunnel
The C.B.B.T. has four basic components: 12 miles of low level concrete trestle, two one-mile tunnels, two steel bridges, and four man-made Islands, providing entrance and exists for the short tunnels.
None of this week's postcards are available for sending. If you would like to have a somewhat less boring (but still quite boring, I assure you) postcard delivered to your own home, that is your right and privilege as a reader of this online entertainment.
You may demand your card in the comments or by email -- I am (of course) Michael5000, and I use the major web mail service hosted by the Google folks.
