Curiously juxtaposed USA

Curiously juxtaposed, is the title and curiously juxtaposed are the place names all over North America (some have strayed into Canada and Mexico).  You will almost certainly need to click on the map to see a larger view so that you can enjoy looking at the odd and oddly paired place names.  It's a good way to while away a few spare minutes and, if you're anything like me, you'll end up trying to find more of these places.

A further oddity of the card is that the text on hte back says:
An awfully pretty sunset provides dramatic lighting as jumbo shrimp sizzle on a barbeque at this campsite on the outskirts of Reno, Nevada.  Mesquite-flavored charcoal is used to give the food an authentic western taste.
The text is very curiously juxtaposed with this card!

A happy July 4 to all my American friends.


  1. Now that was a fun card to investigate. I never knew of the connection to the names. Great post.

  2. I like this one! I want to visit Jupiter!

  3. Interesting, happy 4th of july america belated

  4. I like the writing even better than the places.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
