Special Saturday

I don’t intend to post on here over the weekend, but felt inclined to post something special for Saturday.  This postcard took a bit of an extra journey.

This postcard was supposed to come to me in CT from China via postcrossing. However, it showed up in an envelope with a note.

Katie, This card found the way to my mailbox in New Hope, PA. I am sending it to the address on the card in hopes that it will find the person it was intended for (perhaps the post office will do better this time). As I plan to travel to China during the last part of June, I was captivated by the stamps; particularly the Chinese Sturgeon. It looks very formidable in the picture, but is unfortunately an endangered species with small numbers left in the Yangtze River.  Michael
