COVID Card #350

April 20, 2021 | 0 comments

Well, bless my Little Britches if it isn’t hard to find information about Algot Stenbery online. Not even the Whitney, which lists Stenbery as a participant in a 1944 exhibit, has anything to say about the man. The New York Historical Society says he was born in 1902 and died in 1983. That once lovely online bookstore named for a mighty river shows us that he created dust jackets and endpapers for many a fun and lively read. Even poor Algot’s post office mural (Landscape Near Wayne – 1875, Wayne, Michigan) has been lost to history.

Anybody want to go on a mural hunt? If you’ve got the money, I’ve got the time…

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.
