Canadians love vacationing in Florida and I have a vault of postcards to prove it. As much as we love to get away at this time of year to the sun and sand, we equally seem to love sending a postal thumbed nose to those we leave behind still suffering in the freeze and frost. Hence this postcard that recently arrived:
These “you vs. me” Florida postcards are almost as ubiquitous as an ocean sunset postcard. Our insufferable winters make people do desperate things after they escape.
Here’s the backside of the postcard:
“Don’t you wish you were here, today’s temperature is X!”
“Hi! We had a good drive to Key West! No snow! The weather has been great, not too hot. The new house should be here in two weeks but we won’t be able to move him in until the interior work is done. Not much else new for now.”
