Wicked Woman, LH B747-400, The Mermaid and You Call It

                                   BLOG # 1586 ---  Day 447 of the Current ( Second ) Russian Invasion of Ukraine 

                                                                  GLORY TO UKRAINE                 


Hello again. Here's a few more cards that arrived in the last while. This first one arrived from Montana, U.S.A. 

It's an illustration by German cartoonist, painter and author Rudi Hurzlmeier. I leave it to you readers for the analysis of said art. 

Greg used 3 stamps on this card. The left and middle stamps are 2 of the 3 in a set issued in 2019 for the 150th Anniversary of the Transcontinental Railroad. The 3rd stamp , from 2022, is 1 of 5 issued in a strip for Pony Cars. 

For those that don't know, Pony is an American car classification for affordable , compact, highly styled coupes or convertibles with a sporty performance oriented image . Emamples from the 1960s include the Mustang, Camaro, Trans Am and Barracuda. 

Card 2 arrived from Brazil. It shows a World War II airplane with its Wicked Woman art on the side. 

Ana from Curitiba used 2 stamps on her card. The left stamp, issued in 2021, celebrates the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Anita Garibaldi. The smaller stamp is 1 of 2 issued in 2006 showing Professions. 

Well here's another art card. Photography this time by Manolis Tsantakis of Crete, Greece. This one is called The Mermaid. 

 This card was sent by Tina, not My Teena though.  It is Tina from Attendorn, Germany , so it arrived with a German stamp from 2019. It Commemorates the 100th Anniversary of the Weimar Constitution.


A Lufthansa B77-400 is the focus of this next card. On the right side of the card you can see the Star Alliance logo, of which Lufthansa was a founding member in 1997. The alliance now includes 26 airlines. 

Meelis used 2 stamps. On the left is some sort of ATM stamp or Computer Vended stamp. The right stamp was issued in 2021 under to title Treasures of Philately. It shows a part of the Mauritius 1847 Post Office Bordeaux Cover. A classic for sure. 

So ends another blog update. Thanks for visiting. 

Thanks for today's cards go to Meelis, Tina, Ana and Greg.
