Sausage Truck from German Village, Ohio, USA! Patrick’s dad sent me this postcard – I love it! 🙂
Awww, my grandma was taking a roadtrip from Rockford, Illinois, USA to Nebraska, USA. She sent me this card because I’m sure she knows how much I love trains. 🙂 She said it was a long trip, but she was having fun seeing family. 🙂
I recently went on a roadtrip from Virginia to Wisconsin, and back! I had a huge amount of fun, and, as always, I was on the lookout for postcards! I finally found some Illinois mapcards. I’ve been trying to find them for a few years, and never have any luck. I go to Illinois once or twice a year, so I was thrilled to finally find not only one, but four different designs! 🙂
I went to Springfield, Illinois on my trip, as I’m a huge Lincoln nerd. 😉 And several locals had mentioned Cozy Dog Drive In, as being a good place to eat. I’m really happy I went there, because not only was the food great, but I also learned about a wonderful artist named Bob Waldmire! The Cozy Dog Drive In, had a gift shop, which sold various products with his art on them, and obviously I bought several of the postcards. 🙂 The Cozy Dog Drive In claims to have invented the corn dog, by Bob Waldmire’s dad, and a friend. I don’t eat meat, so I can’t tell you how the corn dog was, but my fiancé said it was quite tasty. I thought their grilled cheese and fries were great! 🙂 Here are a few examples of Waldmire’s art, which I think is so incredible and amazing!
Yay! My friend Valerie sent me this neat Georgia postcard, because she knows I love mapcards! 🙂 I was really excited to get this. Valerie and I were in Atlanta a few years ago – what a wonderful city! I think my favorite place was the Georgia Aquarium, where she went again on her current trip! 🙂 Thanks Valerie! 🙂
