BLOG # 1518
Today`s a good day to blog. The weather sucks. Yesterday the temperature was 20 and the three previous days 18, 15, and 13. With not a bit of snow anywhere in sight. Yesterday it was shorts and sandals weather, today not. Today it`s winter all over again. The temperature is -2 and snowing , we expect 10 -15 cm of snow. So no shorts today. Now it`s on to postcards.
I have 4 cards for today. They arrived from Czech Rep, Germany and 2 from France. Czech Rep is up first.
I really like this card. Maybe it`s because I live in Canada and like hockey. It is our national pastime after all. The art on this card is great. It`s from the TakeTakeTake Publishing House in Prague, run by Nikola Klimova and Jindrich Janicek. One is a graphic designer and the other an illustrator. So it`s a fair guess the card was designed by them and the artwork is by them. The subject of the card is Corey Crawford, a Canadian goaltender who played his entire career of ten years with the Chicago Black Hawkes. He played in 488 games and won 260 of them, 26 of which were shutouts.
