Yesterday, I mentioned here that one of my favourite museums is the Jell-O Gallery in Le Roy, New York. The museum is a lot of fun (even if there are no free samples). Here is a postcard I sent myself from the museum.
I had no idea that Jell-O was “The Dainty Dessert” as a child I had a fondness for slurping it up and wiggling around in my mouth. Then there was an incident where I witnessed a senior grabbing mounds of orange Jell-O with his hands from an all-you-can eat buffet and wolfing it down on the spot. So dainty isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But if you go to the museum you can get your picture taken as the Jell-O Girl!
Here’s the reverse side:
“Our New York state trip is winding down. But oh what a trip! From the multicoloured splendours of the world’s largest kaleidoscope in Catskill Corners on our first day to the jiggling wonders of the Jell-O Museum in LeRoy on our last day – it has been a truly incredible. ”
I forgot about the world’s largest kaleidoscope – it was almost as much fun as the Jell-O museum. But Jell-O always has a special place in my heart, even if I can’t get it to ever come out of my molds (a brain one, being my favourite).
Update: Notice the postalmark / cachet over the stamp. It’s Shrek and Donkey – I didn’t know the U.S. Postal Service did such cutesy marks.
