How's this place work?

If you could take a little mental holiday and go to any imaginary place, where would you go?
And what would you do while you were there?

Send me a postcard, handmade or otherwise, from an imaginary location. It can be a place from a book or a movie or a piece of music, or some other world you made up. On the other side, write and tell me what you've been doing on your vacation from reality.

All postcards to be addressed to:

Wish I Were Here
6219 156th Ave. NE
Redmond, WA 98052
United States

I'll scan a selection of postcards and post them to the blog for all and sundry to enjoy.

Postcard the sixty-sixth: Valentine Alley

And you thought we were done for a while. (Well, actually, I thought we were done for a while.)

But to our rescue comes the lovely and talented Gail Anderson, who provides us with a Polaroid-style snapshot of Valentine Alley circa 1973.

Gail writes:
"Dear Soozcat:
Wish that I could hop inside a time machine and go to this place. Not only does Valentine Alley look like fun, but the early 1970s were an interesting time. I couldn't really appreciate them because I was in middle school at the time."

Middle school does make it tough to appreciate a lot of things. Myself, I couldn't really appreciate the early '70s because I was learning to walk, talk, feed myself, poop through the white donut, etc., at the time. But I am curious. Anybody got a time machine Gail and I could take out for a spin this weekend? We promise not to go all A Sound of Thunder on anybody!
