Recently I have been going through an old box of postcards, picked up over many years of travel. One thing I noticed though, is a similarity to all of them.
This is just a small sample of an ever growing collection
Gate of the year
City of London Policeman
Vila Nova de Mil Fontes, Portugal
Finkenberger Almbahnen, Penkentenne, Austria
All is weird here in Finkenberger. Nobody talks or moves, except the bustling photographers for knitting magazines and the distant swish-slap of the man who creosotes the sky.
Can’t complain, though -deckchair sales remain healthy, and soon I’ll have enough commission to buy some Tilsetter cheese to put around those holes I’ve been saving.
The Austrians have finally evicted Pingu & made his house into a bar. They have also successfully instated a law decreeing that anyone who disagrees with an Austian is lying. Hope you are well, are you allowed back in Crystal Palace yet?
Love, the Verger.
