COVID Card #279

February 8, 2021 | 0 comments

Every once in a while, a single work by an artist sparks an idea and later I learn that the web cannot tell me much about said artist. Such is the case with Allan Gould. It seems that Mr. Gould was best known for his furniture design. And now I’m wondering if I shouldn’t have made a landscape of chairs. Oh, well. Perhaps that’s the next project.

Gould created two post office murals: Source of Power (Greenville, Kentucky) and Gathering Tobacco (Roxboro, North Carolina).

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.
