Charlotte lives in the Fingerlakes region of the state but sent me a card from a visit she had made to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. In the Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda stands this barosaurus that lived 140 million years ago – she is shown rearing up to protect her young from an allosaurus. This is the tallest freestanding dinosaur mount in the world. Although a photograph this card has the quality of a nineteenth century painting about it.
Charlotte’s daughter Julie and granddaughter Mikayla both postcross as well. (I wonder what the biggest postcrossing family membership is?)
This self-adhesive stamp of George Washington which I have had previously was first issued on 11th April 2011.
This Northern Harrier is part of a wonderful 2012 set shown below in a picture from the web. (I have previously had the Peregrine from Danielle – card no 13. Hint, hint to any of my US senders – any more of these welcome!)
This card arrived on 23rd May, travelled 3,326 miles and took 8 days.
Total so far – 229,036 miles; 20 countries (including 8 US States).
