The Wednesday Post
Old Meets New in the Modern European Scene
A postcard from France
A postcard arrived recently from perhaps our most active reader in the French Republic.
Well, I say postcard, but it wasn't really intended to be a postcard. It is very unclear what it was meant to be, although it would make a fine writing prompt for a freshman creative writing class. By it was printed on reasonably heavy cardstock, and the resourceful sender made it into a very commendable postcard, even inscribing a little line to separate the text from the address. And to complete the postcard look, not to mention to convince the post offices to do their thing, she put a French stamp -- a very charmingly French stamp -- on it.
Do they play pétanque outside of France?
