NOTE: You don't have to post today. The deadline is really at the end of the month so there is plenty of time to post. You also can put the permalink to an older post on the theme into Mister Linky.
The theme for this month is FISH. Here are some from my postcard collection to inspire you.
So large that even I,
In talking of it afterwards,
May never need to lie
Tarpon are one of the big fish of Florida. They are usually caught and released. I like the classic attire on this woman, the camera slung over her shoulder, and the fact that she is not a scantily clad pin-up. It looks like the publisher was trying to appeal to both sexes with this postcard.
"Fishing is always good at Lake Corpus Christi State Park, Mathis, Texas. Catfish, Bass, and Crappie are only a few of the many species that make this lake so popular."
This is an exaggeration postcard by Nyce Manufacturing Co.
"This fresh water fish is the most eagerly sought of all game fish species. Well distributed throughout all Lake States and Canada."
Minnesota Game Fish: Northern Pike, Black Crappie, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Walleye. Walleye is the Minnesota State Fish.
The 2009 Minnesota fishing opener is this weekend, May 9. I've never been on a fishing trip, but I like all the funny and exaggerated fish postcards. If you are interested in fishing or like videos, be sure to watch the Minnesota fishing video. It's actually quite humorous.
