Grass On Your Roof

Diane over at Artstanding Stranger sent these great photo postcards. "Trapper's Cabin" is an "alaska joe" original postcard. The other shows the Continental Divide in Yellowstone National Park. Thanks Diane, I didn't have either card but do remember crossing the great divide as a kid on a family vacation and seeing that same sign. Sod roofs are traditional structures with many native peoples who populate the Alaskan region and with modern day trappers and National Park Service restrooms in remote locations.

  1. Hi Kris, I am so glad you didn't have those two cards. I love to look at them when I go to antique stores and "Junk Stores' Tell your wife my art room was a guest room a few years ago and after I realized I never got any company I got rid of all the furniture and changed it in to my studio...I have been enjoying it ever since. Not to sound bitter but if I do get any company they can ruff it..Ha Ha...Best to you and yours. Diane
