Looks like Pookie and Louise didn't quite have enough Magic Points...

Finally a letter from Joey, who has heard across the oceans of my stationery predilections. - "Old Tech" is the new "New Tech"! (Well, maybe not, but quite enjoyable). ;-)

A postcard from yockenthwaite in St. Andrews, details discovery of secret British Army training techniques. Tea and cake help fortify against the rigours of research.

Buchhalter visits ancient standing stones (and brochs) in the isles of Scotland and some of the Lewis Chessmen have made their way back (at least for a little while)...

It's definitely cooling here at Innsmouth House at this time of year, but that's nothing compared to what it must be like in Alaska right now. AdamAlexander writes from Juneau with some very kind words.

Of course a storm front came through the last night I was there and caused flight delays on departure day. That’s what I get for boasting about the sunshine.

One of the more challenging postcards to get onto the site!

 

A message from yockenthwaite visiting St. Andrew's and stopping by the picturesque fishing village of Crail. If the angles look odd it's probably my photography... probably...  :8E:

Glad it arrived! I had to pause before folding it, to make sure I was doing it right! Innes bookshop / newsagent in South Street, St Andrews had quite a number of these long triple sized folding postcards. I've never seen them before. The shop also gave us the wee sticky plastic sealer for it. Again another moment for pausing and taking care, in between drinking my latte tea :)

My neighbours keep giving me funny looks. The latest was addressed to Yog-Sothoth team. The bloke in the sewing machine repair place gave me a long hard look and asked "is this you?"
