Inge Look sent me this card featuring the proverbial Grannies.

Surprisingly the Grannies are shown after what must have been a small quarrel. This is indeed exceptional as usually they are the best of friends always laughing and having lots of fun together.

Thank you Ella for this nice card showing a Seal.

Seal, any of 32 species of web-footed aquatic mammals that live chiefly in cold seas and whose body shape, round at the middle and tapered at the ends, is adapted to swift and graceful swimming. There are two types of seals: the ear less, or true, seals (family Phocidae); and the eared seals(family Otariidae), which comprise the sea lions and fur seals. In addition to the presence of external ears, eared seals have longer flippers than do ear less seals. Also, the fur of eared seals is more apparent, especially in sea lions.

Seals are carnivores, eating mainly fish, though some also consume squid , other mollusks and crustaceans. Unlike other seals, the leopard seal (Hydrurga leptonyx) of the Antarctic feeds largely on penguins, seabirds, and other seals, in addition to fish and krill. The main predators of seals are killer whales, polar bears, leopard seals, large sharks, and human beings.

Sail Training Shp SS Jadran

 Jadran is a training ship powered both by sail and internal combustion built for the navy of Yugoslavia and now owned by the Navy of Montenegro. My friend Karoly a resident of Serbia sent me this fine card.. 
Jadran is a barkentine   with a displacement of 737 tons and a length of almost 60 meters. The beam reaches 8.90 m, intermediate draft is 4.05 m, the main mast height 39.1 m, and the deck surface totals 93.3 m2. Total length of rope is 11 kilometers. The main motor is the "burmajster-alpha" 353 kN and develops a maximum speed of 10.4 knots. On the sailboat, there are three single, two double and three four-person cabins, one 12-berth and one 30 berth space.
On 16 July 1933, at 10.00 hours, the ship arrived in Tivat, and was commissioned into theYugoslav Royal Navy. The crew remained on board until April 17, when the destroyer Zagreb was sunk. It was surrendered to the Italian Navy , which used it as a training ship under the new name Marco Polo. 
At the request of the Yugoslav  government and the ship was returned to Tivat. Immediately its restoration was begun in the Sava Kovacevic marine-technical repair bureau. Repairs began on 21 April 1947, and finished on 17 December 1948. The ship was ready for sailing, and served as part of the Vojnopomorskog school center in Divulje.
