Quotecard #58

April 2, 2012

This is a series of Swap-bot swaps, where you mail a postcard with a quote on it. This is #58 in the series, so how many years has it been going (one per month)… nearly six! Wow!

This one is titled “Demolition Temporarily Halted”. The artist is Bruce McCall (Serious Nonsense). The quote is from Jack Nicholson – “My mother never saw the irony in calling me a son of a b**ch”.

This one has the caption “Six horse coaching party and Mammoth Hotel”.

These park guests were photographed in a ‘Tally-ho’ stagecoach in front of Yellowstone’s first large hotel. Six-horse carriages were used only from the railroad to and from Mammoth. The Mammoth Hotel was designed by L.F. Buffington, and boasted electric lights quite an achievement in an area so remote.

The quotes offered include

  • “Comparison is the thief of joy.”
  • “If I had a British accent, I’d never shut up.”
  • “I am who I am. Your approval is not necessary.”
