Heebee Post #462 - Lorraine Kwan - Vancouver, British Columbia - Canada

It's Bean-o A-gogo at the Affair today! Lorraine has the handsome couple at the Bondi Beach 'Openair' Cinema on the beautiful shores of southern Australia (note the little sign behind her). I like the little facial adornments of those standing in the background too as well as the 'Burma Shave' poetic advertisement on the right bottom corner. Long ago, each line would be spaced out along the highway, each one prominently featured on the side of the road, and you read each of them out loud with great anticipation for the next sign, about 50 - 100 yards or so away. One after the other until the message was completed. Very popular in their time.
Bean-o A-gogo continues with this colorful reverse side, where Lorraine makes the sultry remark, "Let's give them something to talk about". I like your thinking! I always get a kick out of Lorraine's sense of humor - she is really a fun person and a blast to trade postcards with. She currently has a Mail Art Fashion call going on right now. See you in the mail!
