Finally, my international!

My domestic post was a reply to a reply to one of the first letters I sent this MoL The envelope doodle was a rattletrap three-wheeled robot, shielding itself from welding sparks thrown off by the worker in the Made in America stamp with a rusty steel umbrella, and shedding bolts as it putt-putted off to the left of the address. The international post was a card to my brother and sister-in-law in Australia. I turned the circular Forever stamp into a hot-air balloon, then added a bunch of others to make a balloon festival flying across the envelope — white clouds behind the address and return address, against a pale blue-pencil-colored background. One balloon read “Via Air Mail” and another “Par Avion.”
