First letter, posted!

This is a postcard to Ukraine via postcrossing.  It’s one of the many comic book cover postcards I have in my collection.  This particular one is issue #1 of Sandman.

If you look at the back…

You’ll note the ridiculous number of stamps I put on the postcard.  That’s because I forgot that postage rates have been raised.  It’s now 1.05$ to send a postcard internationally (excepting Canada and Mexico, I believe that’s 0.85$).  So, poor planning meant that I crammed a lot of stamps onto this postcard.  Also, don’t be harping that the USPS is always raising rates.  Whose fault is that, really (we will disregard the weird pension plan the USPS is forced to use right now)?  Write more letters, you.

In other news, I have secured my first postcard swap via lettermo.  I’ll be making this one, so the post will be up some time later.


Fun times!  I’m participating in (what I assume is) the first annual month of letters challenge!  For every day the mail runs in February, I will be sending out some kind of mail, be it a full letter, postcard (which I see as a mini-letter and also because I’m a member of Postcrossing), or package with some kind of note (a micro-letter? and because I have family/friends around the world and I’m a member of swap-bot).

Thus I am announcing that moosages will update everyday the mail runs in February with the happenings in the lettermo world alongside the normal posts.  We’ll…see how long I can keep this up.

Anyway, you should participate too!  We can trade letters!  We can support the USPS!  I sound a bit like Yaris!
