COVID Card #236

December 27, 2020 | 0 comments

Happy Kwanzaa! I will not be making Kwanzaa cards. Kwanzaa is both rather young (it was created in 1966) and thus lacking (this is not a criticism) in little trivia nuggets and historical facts that make for interesting cards, and really broad (it takes in elements from the First Fruits celebrations of many African tribes). So, to all those who read this and celebrate Kwanzaa, I wish you a very joyful and love-filled holiday.

It’s muralist time again. Did you miss it?

Today’s muralist is Eduard Buk Ulreich, who painted the three post office murals (as well as, other New Deal murals): History of Florida (Tallahassee, Florida) and Pony Express and Indians Watching Stagecoach in the Distance (Columbia, Missouri).

Examples of Ulreich’s work can be seen in the online galleries of Tate and Smithsonian American Art Museum.

Cards 1-100

The United States Postal Service has been hit hard by the pandemic. Controlling elements of the Federal Government (the president and Republican Senate) do not want to provide aid to the service. So, it’s up to us. It may seem insignificant, but if we all sent just a few letters a week, we could help ensure that our daily, free mail delivery service continues. For the past (see the card number above) days, I have drawn a card each day and mailed it to someone the next day (none are sent on Sundays; two are sent on Mondays). Please consider mailing cards and letters while we still can for 55 cents (first class letter postage). If the USPS fails, you could find it costs $8 or more to send a letter. And that’s just one of the ways we will all lose if the USPS shuts down.
