BLOG # 1559 --- Day 680 of the Pandemic
Hello again. I'm back with a couple of cards , 2 in fact, to showcase on the blog today. They arrived from The Netherlands and France.
The card from Netherlands is a Christmas themed postcard so I guess I should show that one first. Titled " Rockin ' around the Christmas tree " I guess it shows that cats and Christmas trees don't always go together well. I do believe this is a self designed card by Barbara. And a very nice one it is !
Barbara used 2 stamps on her card. The left stamp is 1 of a set of 21 issued in December 2016 to celebrate December. The other stamp was issued in 2021 and is 1 of a block of 10 Christmas stamps.
Now here's the second card. It's a look at the 44.3m high Cross of Lorraine at the Charles de Gaulle Monument located in the commune of Colombey Les Deus Eglises in North-eastern France.
Dominique used a 1972 stamp on this card. It is one from a set of Famous Frenchmen. It was issued on the 100th anniversary of the death of French poet, novelist and journalist Theophile Gautier.
That's today's two cards, as I mention last time, cards are quite scarce. Thanks to Barbara and Dominique for these fine cards that we see here today.
On the pandemis front - let's hope the Pfizer pill to treat covid-19 is effective as the company says. Doctors seem to welcome it as a game changer. But of course , even after 680 days , we should know the best defence is a good offence , like vaccination and masks.
Take care , stay safe.
