Postmark Ashville, NC / Frederick Law Olmsted was careful to introduce a park-like element to Biltmore’s Landscape. This western view of Biltmore House showcases Olmsted’s ability to combine a residential home of such magnitude with the quiet beauty of a park and lagoon.
DEAR LIZ, GREETINGS FROM THE “ROAD.” I DIDN’T GET TO SEE THE MANSION BECAUSE THEY CHARGE $36 ADMISSION! I’LL JUST WAIT UNTIL THEY FEATURE IT ON “MTV CRIBS.” I’LL VISIT YOU SOMETIME OR MAYBE JUST MOVE TO NYC ALTHOUGH IT’S NOT AS APPEALING WITHOUT A RED TERROR ALERT. CIAO!
Postmark Knoxville, TN / Dolly Parton’s Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee offers the best in music, entertainment, rides, attractions, and family fun in the Great Smoky Mountains.
DEAR LIZ, I GOT TO “DOLLYWOOD” THE DAY BEFORE IT OPENED FOR THE SEASON. I’LL HAVE TO COME BACK LATER TO FIND OUT IF THEY SERVE BREAST IMPLANT BURGERS AT THE SNACK SHOPS. OH MY GAWWWD! MY BRAIN FRIED IN THE TENNESSEE HEAT & I HAVEN’T “DISCOVERED MYSELF” YET LIKE STEINBECK.
Postmark Evansville, IN / Kentucky Dam is a 20-story, 8,422-foot-long structure that impounds the Tennessee River making Kentucky Lake.
DEAR LIZ, DAMN! KENTUCKY DAM! DAM! DAMN! GODDAMN IT! I DON’T KNOW WHERE THIS DAM IS, I JUST GOT THIS POSTCARD BECAUSE IT WAS THE STUPIDEST LOOKING AVAILABLE AT THE REST STOP I’M SLEEPING IN FRONT OF ON THE “WESTERN KENTUCKY PARKWAY.” CIAO! PS. I HOPE YOU LIKE POSTCARDS!!!
Postmark Evansville, IN / Dedicated to the Indiana men killed in action during World War I, World War II, and the Korean War, this memorial includes a 450 seat auditorium and a military museum. University Square, with its cascading fountain (background) and Obelisk Square (foreground) provide a lovely resting spot in mid-town Indianapolis.
DEAR LIZ, PLEASE NOTE THAT THE KENTUCKY POSTCARD HAS AN INDIANA POSTMARK. FOR SOME REASON IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND STAMPS FOR SALE AT 5AM IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. THE CLERK AT DUMBASS SUPERMARKET SAID THEY CAN’T SELL STAMPS AFTER 9 OR SOMETHING EQUALLY DUMBASS. GODDAMN IT THAT’S WHAT’S WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY. NO! I WON’T STOP WRITING! THIS SPACE IS NOT RESERVED FOR US POSTAL SERVICE ! KI(illegible) ASS ! I HATE THE MID-WEST! I HATE ALL OF YOU! JUST BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE LETTERMAN TEETH DOESN’T MEAN YOU DON’T HAVE TO KISS MY ASS!
Postmark Saint Louis, MO / The great St. Louis Arch frames the Old Courthouse along the river in downtown.
DEAR LIZ, IT SEEMS LIKE FOREVER SINCE I WROTE TO YOU! ST. LOUIS IS VERY NICE AND FUTURISTIC LOOKING. I’M FEELING LESS PSYCHOTIC SINCE I STAYED IN AN ACTUAL HOTEL LAST NIGHT. SO FAR MY ROAD TRIP HAS BEEN A FAILURE FOR MY PRIMARY GOAL OF “FINDING MYSELF.” I DIDN’T EVEN FIND NELLY. MAYBE I’M SUPPOSED TO BE FOUND WHEN I’M BACK IN WALDORF WASHING DISHES AT IHOP. WELL, I’M OUT OF ROOM AGAIN, GAY POSTCARD. CIAO!
Postmark Chicago IL / The 100-story John Hancock Center is a self-contained world of apartments, restaurants and shops. The 94th floor observatory offers a marvelous view of Chicago’s spectacular skyline and lakefront.
DEAR LIZ, GREETINGS FROM THE “WINDY CITY” WOAH HOHO! IT’S REALLY WINDY RIGHT NOW! WHO WOULD’VE THUNK IT?! I WENT TO THE TOP OF THE SEARS TOWER BUT I COULDN’T DISCERN WHERE THE PROJECTS WERE. I THOUGHT IF I JUST LOOKED SOUTH I’D SEE J.J. EVANS APARTMENT. THE ONLY OTHER LANDMARK I WAS LOOKING FOR WAS THE BRIDGE THEY RIDE BICYCLES OVER ON THE OPENING OF “FAMILY MATTERS.” I FOUND THAT OK.
Postmark Columbus, OH / The scenic skyline of Ohio’s capital city.
DEAR LIZ, I DROVE DOWN THROUGH INDIANA LAST NIGHT AND I’M NOW HEADING “HOME.” I WOULD HAVE LIKED TO GO FARTHER WEST BUT MY “ROADTRIP” WAS ALOTTED 1 WEEK MAX. IF SOMEONE HAD EVER TOLD ME I’D ONE DAY BE EATING BREAKFAST AT A COLUMBUS WENDY’S I WOULDN’T HAVE BELIEVED THEM AND I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE SLAPPED THEM. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. THIS IS MY LAST POSTCARD.
