Smiling Peanut Postcard

Ha Ha! One of these days, I will make it to Plains, Georgia, to see this masterpiece in person!

Backside says: "The smiling peanut stands 13 ft high, and was donated to Plains by Democratic friends. Made of wooden hoops, chicken wire, aluminum foil and polyurethane. It is known worldwide, and has been featured on the TV game show, Jeopardy. It is located on Hwy. 45N about 1/2 mile from the original Jimmy Carter Campaign Headquarters at the town train depot in Plains, Georgia".

(Update of text on card: The Jimmy Carter Peanut is still alive and well after being moved to a different location in Plains, Georgia.)

Newly issued Forever stamp featuring legendary rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix.  At first, I didn't see a connection between the card and the stamp. But, it just dawned on me:  Jimmy Carter, Jimi Hendrix!  Very clever. :)

Thanks a bunch, Denise!
