COVID Card #296

While Dunbar Beck biographical info is scarce on the web, if you are interested in learning more about him, you can attend a free Zoom lecture about his life on March 23, 2021. Anyway… Beck made some pretty cool (that is a very legit, professional, art critic phrase) paintings with boxing themes. He also made a post office mural: Return of Timothy Pickering to Reside in Danvers (Danvers, Massachusetts).

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.
