Two Letters from My Bank - 8/31/20

Today's downstate NY puzzle was passed along to me recently.  It got me thinking about the fact that we've gotten so little actual mail lately, it's been pathetic.  Several days a week the truck just drives right on by without stopping at our box.  At this point I'd even welcome:

re:curse of ... 8/28/20

I've been preoccupied this week getting ready to start back to work next Tuesday, so I hope you'll indulge me for sharing a cache I put together a couple weeks ago (with the help of a co-conspirator) in California.  I thought it would be fun to create my own entry in this little series that I've featured here before:

A Year of Travel - 8/17/20

Today's puzzle takes us (virtually) to Oregon. I know a lot of us have cancelled our trips for the duration of the pandemic. It's been quite an unusual summer sticking so close to home, just waiting for things to return to normal.  I bet I'm not the only one out there who will be planning:

A Day at the Lake - 8/2/20

Despite living in a town with a rather large lake our family never goes boating unless we're visiting my in-laws in Minnesota, which we won't be doing this summer.  I'd really love a day on the lake right now.  I don't think I'm going to manage that, but thanks to this puzzle that dropped into my inbox recently we can head to downstate New York and spend a little time on:
