Postcards That Missed The Mailbox


My long time friend Carolyn sent me a couple Anne Taintor postcards that somehow missed Friday morning’s mail-bag post.

Inexcusable of me, frankly.

I always want to take the time to recognize how important my friends and readers are to me, and to the Muscleheaded Blog…

… and the mailbag feature is one way I do that.

So, missing these — well….

What can I say.

Oh well…

Anybody who knows Carolyn (from WordPress or Xanga) knows that she has a wonderful, wicked, and slightly bent sense of humor.

So, I’m pretty sure she’ll understand.

These cards are witty and cute,
and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

We started off with the one she said she liked the most  …

Let’s hear it for a sin coming on, man.

Just remember what Mister Spock said that episode in which he got to be emotional–

Wanting stuff is often more fun than actually having stuff.

I think that’s what he said.

And how that’s relevant here, well….. I dunno, come to think of it.


Anybody remember Steppenwolf’s “Born to be Wild”?

Great tune.

What’s better?  wi

Well, how about some lovely retro bathing beauties, by the seaside.

Why wouldn’t anybody love that?

“Glimmering and vast,
out in the tranquil bay.
Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!
Only, from the long line of spray
Where the sea meets the moon-blanch’d land,
Listen! you hear the grating roar
Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling….. ” 


yes, that verse was cut from “Dover Beach”–

—- so my apologies to Matthew Arnold, already.

meHere’s C’s last submission —

And having been one of them there ‘unsuitable’ types, myself, for most of my life,

I totally get the humor here.

And want to express my undying gratitude.

For the cards, of course.


If you somehow missed the mailbag post, like these cards did, you can see it here.

so now, I get to submit one …

It’s only fair, right?

  1. HA! This is GREAT! 😛
    Thank you, SweetC!!! 🙂
    And thank you for being okay with (and encouraging) my wild, wicked, weird, and well-bend sense of humor all these years! 😀
    AND thank you for appreciating your friends and readers…and for treating us so well…and for making us laugh every day! 🙂
    HUGS!!! 🙂
    PS…I’m sure all the womens who love “unsuitable” men are appreciative of your undying gratitude! 😉

  2. All of those are great! The “sin coming on” caption is so good. It makes me think of, “Is that a gun you are carrying or are just happy to see me?” 😀
    The third one, I have known women that it seems they always do that and it never turns out well. Very well stated caption, indeed!
