anxiety day

An Anxious Moment...
(the sight of a tiny postman will do that)

On the outskirts a more strapping postman

meanwhile in the general post office

Comments: anxiety day

Did you get anxious today when the postman arrived ?

I am always anxious, alas.

No need to be anxious on such a lovely day.
Love is a many splendid thing !!

"Tiny Postman". Where are they playing next?

Somehow an emailed Valentine doesn't quite cut it. But a hand- addressed and delivered letter, now more than ever in this e-world, really gets your attention and expectation up.

Speaking of which, excuse me. The back of my neck is burning.

- at Dizzy's.

A handwriiten card - yes I imagine it would.
Handwriting is the new prescription.

They really jump out at me.

O boynton
Woe is me. I forgot to send you a Valentine.

Did 19th century Victoria really look like the American South?
(Or at least my minds-eye conception of the American South, which like my minds-eye conception of boynton, may have little
resemblance to reality.)

Maybe at the height of Marvellous Melbourne? But inthe first pic her vantage point seems more like from inside a Floral Festival booth of 'non specific place'.
The cottage in the bush seems more Australian, but it is indeed a miracle that those girls could turn out in such finery from the confines of a small bush hut. Such things did happen though, on Sundays.
I suspect they were all in love with the postman and saw this moment as their big chance.
