Sobre con Estampilla
A title wouldn't come to mind except "envelope with stamp" which wasn't very exciting. Of course that is what the sketch is. I thought maybe it would sound better in Spanish. What do you think?
For Scavenger Hunt 637 https://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/topic/scavenger-hunt-637-june-16-24/
Number 1, envelope with stamp - sketched in the big book with a Micron 02.
Do you still send letters or cards? I do -- a few. I know how much my mom and mother-in-law liked receiving mail so I try to send to a few friends. Not very often or a often as I should.
The US Postal Service gets such a bad rap. When you think that they have to drive by and maybe deliver or pick up at every address every working day it is mind boggling. The other services only go to an address when they have a delivery or pick up and that is an extra charge. We saw mail service in South America and believe me it does not come close to our service. I haven't mailed anything in over a week and we receive very little mail now, but our mail carrier comes by every day! She also walks packages to the door.
When you move, mail is forwarded for one year. After we had been at our present address for almost two years, we had a letter from South America delivered that went to the old address. Our previous carrier and our new carrier are friends at work and they just talked about it and delivered it. Maybe not the norm, but they cared enough to get it done. The letter might have floated around for a few months and made it back to the writer.
I hope you use snail mail once in a while, it is almost as good as painting with a friend.
