This is an antique postcard and was not sent by any one I know. I just like the story behind it.
In the spirit of Halloween, this postcard has a murder attached to it. The Glenmore Lodge on Big Moose Lake was the setting of Theodore Dreiser's An American Tragedy, based on a true murder which took place there in 1906. An American Tragedy was made into the movie A Place in the Sun with Elizabeth Taylor. Another good book about this story is A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly.

Love the layovers in Puerto Rico. Again, great food. Look at all the fruit in this photo! Back in the day, the hotel van would stop at a little diner for us to pick up food to take onto the airplane with us, but I don't think they are allowed to do this anymore. Oh well.

Closer to home, this is the waterfront in Olympia, WA. Great shopping and eating, (try the Oyster House) and quirky artwork! Each piece of art on Olympia's mile-long, waterfront Percival Landing boardwalk has a red sign noting a phone number you can call from your cell phone for a recorded message about the piece. How cool is that?!
