Postcard Friendship Friday





I thought I would post this postcard which depicts the ride of Ichabod Crane escaping the Headless Horseman in Washington Irving's short story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

I bought it on Wednesday in Sleepy Hollow where we visited The Irving family plot in the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Visiting Sleepy Hollow is appropriate at this time of year. The leaves are at their Autumn prettiest and, of course, the Headless Horseman is out and about across the land. Sleepy Hollow decorates its main street called North Broadway with Halloween decorations every year.



Marie hosts Postcard Friendship Friday at The French Factrice. Go over and visit her and other participants.

I have to reread this gem of a story...next to the fire and with a piping hot mug of hot spiced wine! It's amazing that you can actual visit Sleepy Hollow Mary!

Hi Mary,
That's a great postcard. I've never been to Sleepy Hollow, sounds like a great place to visit this time of year. Have a great day!

A very attractive card! I haven't read the story and yet the name is very familiar. I will put things to rights straight away.

What a great outing and card, Mary! I used to love that story. I need to ask my daughters if they've read it and check it out. Happy PFF :)

Sounds like fun; eerie, but fun. Makes me want to re-watch Johny Depp's movie, Sleepy Hollow.
