I found this wicked old postcard at a used bookstore in Naples in May.  

Sadly it was never sent.

Blue Jays




The Blue Jays are a local favourite team.  I recently came across these postage stamps released by Canada Post in 2001.  That was the year the BJs celebrated their 25th anniversary.  I totally like how they look on air mail envelopes!

This little letter is actually very little.  A mini as Phillipa and I call them. 3" x 4" to be precise.  Let's keep the minis going!
