A Long Lost Card

Well, today didn't bring any new cards in the mail. But all is not lost. It seems there is always a card to show and write about. Today's card was given to me , sadly not posted , by my wife Teena way back in 1993. Of course that was a long time before I collected postcards. Then it got misplaced and didn't surface again until yesterday, some 16 years later. It's actually a pretty nice postcard. It shows King penguins marching past a little boy sitting on South Georgia Island in the South Atlantic. Where my wife came by a South Georgia postcard has long since been forgotten. South Georgia is a British overseas territory. The territory is a remote and inhospitable collection of islands, consisting of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. With no native or permanent population, other than scientists and support staff, one can only wonder who this little fellow is. But I guess that he's the lucky one, he has had his picture taken in a place , very , very few of us will ever set foot on.
That's it, another short post again today.
Take care.
