SKS: Boise Nighttime Views

Sara writes from Spirit Lake and observes that there is no date indicating when the pictures on the postcard were taken, but some of the views depicted are very different.

She says that her perch at Spirit Lake includes not just a nice view, but tea and a gentle breeze.

I will note that in the space below the warning DO NOT WRITE BELOW THIS LINE, the USPS has perfectly centered the barcode. Well done!

SKS: Ladybug Press Love from Idaho

Sara reports that this postcard came from a store at Boise Towne Square while she was shopping with her mom. (We had walked around the mall when I was there and pointed at the spots where certain stores used to be.)

She also reported that the Starbucks where she was writing the postcard was playing Bananarama and other oldies from the 80s.

SKS: Two More from NYC

These two postcards arrived while I was in Boise, sent by Sara, the same person I saw in Boise. Sara reports that she was feeling cheeky that day (ha ha), and that she and Shawn enjoyed a nice dinner at the Cafe Luxembourg (everyone was clothed) before going to the ballet.

Sara wrote this postcard on the way to Bermuda but it came back with her to be mailed in New York City. While at the Strand, she bought many picture books which she then hauled to Bermuda, back to NYC, to Boise, and then back home.

Purchases aside, she said that she hadn’t been in the Strand, and that it was magical.

Zoe sent me this same Strand postcard in January.

SKS: The Midwest Map

But not made by Midwesterners!

Sara says that this postcard cracks her up, and I agree. She sent me looking for where Boise was placed on the map.

As someone who lived in New England and encountered constant confusion about where, exactly Idaho was, geographically (not to mention the size of the state capital) , I find there is much to enjoy about this postcard.

Raygun never ceases to delight.
