Cards From Malaysia, England, Netherlands and USA

Hello again. Now that the latest Cruising Thru Postcards is done, it's back to regular postcards today. First is this card from Malaysia, showing the Cameron Highlands area. We can see the rolling hills of the Boh Tea Plantation near Ringlet, one of the most scenic areas in the Highlands.

 Jobbo used 2 stamps on this card. On the left is 1 of 3 in a 2013 Woodpeckers set. Then on the right , also 1 of 3 in a set, a 2016 stamp celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Girl Guide Association in Malaysia.

Next is a card from London, England. Here we have the Life Guard Band parading in front of Buckingham Palace.

Jean Pierre used 2 of the set of 6 stamps issued in 2016 commemorating the 100th anniversary of The Great War. They arrived with a great 2017 Year of the Rooster cancel.

I have a little pin-up from The Netherlands now. It appears she has broken her sling-shot. What to do, what to do ?  I wonder if the elastic holding her nylons up will work ?

This is a card from a Postcrosser in Amsterdam. Cornelia or Coks as she likes to be called used a stamp from a 2015 set of 2. The set is titled " Toys of the Past " . I guess the sling-shot on the card qualifies as a toy from the past. If it isn't electronic , I don't think it would cut it in today's world.

Next is a card from Mike & Ashley, from Malvern , PA, USA. Good to hear from them again, it's been a while. This is the South Philadelphia Sports Complex. The Flyers, the 76ers, the Eagles and the Phillies all play in this complex.

Shown in the middle right corner is The Spectrum. It was demolished in 2011.

The stamps used here include, left to right, an Additional Ounce Penguins stamp from 2015, 1 of 20 in a PETS set from 2016 and 1 of 16 in the 2016 National Parks set. Shown is Mount Rainier National Park.

Last card of the day - this is another left over from my last summer's road trip to Montana. It's Square Butte, an isolated mesa in north central Montana , just off the road to Great Falls. When we drove by, it looked quite dry and was brown , not green as shown.
It's highest point is at an elevation of 1,747 meters. It's located near the town of Geraldine which has a population of 263 and is where this card was mailed from.

My Lovely Teena is the author of this card. She used 3 of the 6 in the 2016 Classic Era set.

That's it for today. Hope you had a good read . Drop by again soon.
Thanks for cards today go out to Jobbo, Jean Pierre, Coks, Mike & Ashley and to My Lovely Teena.
