Florida, USA

And another great official card for today!

US-889780

This card arrived from Florida, showing a lighthouse in St. Augustine. Such a perfect choice for me!
St. Augustine is the oldest city in the US, and was founded by the Spanish in 1565. It also has the oldest fortress in USA, Castillo de San Marcos and this lighthouse is the oldest one in USA as well!
Erm, suddenly I dont know if I should feel old or young after so many repetitions of the word 'oldest' :P

and a bunch of great stamps! there are three copies of the Tiffany lamp issued in 2008...then two copies of the Navajo Jewelry stamp, issued in 2007...the 3c one is a definitive from 2002...and then at the top, you have two stamps from the great Sunday Funnies issue, from 2010. One is the Archie stamp, showing Archie sharing a chocolate shake with brunette Veronica Lodge on his right and blonde Betty Cooper on his left, while the other stamp shows Beetle Bailey, with Beetle smiling calmly while Sarge loses his cool.

Thanks a lot to Maria for the great card, lovely stamps and great info on the back of the card!
