Little Chief Pancho St Louis Zoo Chimpanzee Show 1950 Postcard

Pancho (Little Chief), two and a half years old, is one of the rising young stars  of the St. Louis Zoo's Chimpanzee Show.  His serious mien, pride in his colorful costume and a walk all his own already have made him a favorite with audiences.  The Chimpanzee Show, which opens in May and continues through October is one of three free animal shows at the St. Louis Zoo.

Greetings from Alabama, Greetings from Connecticut Map Postcards

Love the vintage postcards for STATE MAPS...Makes a nice topic for collecting while traveling,,  Usually you find the state flower, bird listed on each card.  Illustrations for many of the cities and historical sites are included.  You can find new State Map postcards at the souvenir shops or older ones at the antique, collectible stores.  Of course they are for sale on eBay too.
State maps for Connecticut and Alabama.

Greetings from St. Cloud Minnesota Postcard Canoeing and Camping

Sometimes I think these old postcards are generic.  It looks like the publishers printed in St. Cloud after the words Greetings from....These camping photos could be anywhere up in Minnesota or Wisconsin or....But they are neat pictures of fun family camping.  Why was my last RVing experience (not quite rustic camping) not too ideal, desert winds (well what did I expect being 100 miles from Death Valley) flies, dust etc.  But we had fun in Lone Pine with wonderful views of Mt Whitney and sleeping well to the wind blowing through the Aspen tree.  Now for cooler weather and more camping.

Weekend news and shared postcards

Still quite warm in Central California but the evenings are cooling off nicely.  The smoke has let up from the Rim Fire.  It has been a smokey summer as we have had smoke from 3 fires.  I am not complaining about the warm weather as it makes it nice for sitting outside in the early morning and evening.  Today I look forward to going to a Birthday Party for a friend who turns 80.  We both have spent hours crafting together.  She does more then I do, since she still does the craft shows in the Fall and Winter.  A few postcards below from my stash!!

Balloon Festival this weekend in Reno Nevada

Had a great week here in Reno but had to leave before most of the balloons take to the sky tomorrow the 7th.  But we saw a preview of some balloons as some businesses near Reno on Thursday put their balloons into the sky.  Quite a site.  This one just landed.
