Postcard Friendship Friday - The Hug

My sister Nancy sent me this postcard with a drawing by John Lennon titled The Hug.
She told me that she had visited the John Lennon museum while she was in Japan.  This museum closed September 30, 2010 after a ten year run.  Some details about the museum can be found at Wikipedia.

She said that this card reminded her of the time I went to Toronto, Ontario with a bunch of my friends for a candlelight memorial the day after his death.

For a little postal friendship, visit The Best Hearts are Crunchy which hosted the weekly meme Postcard Friendship Friday.


  1. It's fascinating that he didn't choose a trophy girlfriend/wife.
    Lots of babes, bimbos and other B-category candidates out there.
    Gold-diggers galore.
    But look who bested them.
    Winner by K.O.
