National Postcard Week: Texas

It is National Postcard Week (May 6-12, 2012)! If I had been smart, I would have posted something about postcards every day this week, but I didn't plan that far ahead...

I bought these three postcards on our recent trip to Corpis Christi, Texas (via San Antonio) for a wedding. The first two may seem old, but they are all brand new and printed recently. I can understand why "Cattle Punching on a Jack Rabbit" is still in print -- it's a classic! I don't know why "John! That's the Wrong Trailer!!" has survived when many other cartoon cards from the same time have went away -- maybe tourists with travel trailers love it?
