FLEA MARKET FRIDAYS #36
Look! It’s a giant racoon and his chipmunk pal out for a peaceful paddle boat ride on a lazy lake. I found this cheesy postcard at a little antique store a few weeks ago for a buck. I must've jinxed the store because it's already out of business.
According to the back of this postcard, Forest City was a theme park with go-carts, bumper boats, mini-golf, kiddie rides, craft shops and paddle boats. I did a quick online search and wasn’t successful finding anything about Forest City. Apparently, Richville is a small town in Otter Tail County and the lake in the photograph is Otter Tail Lake. Hmm... you would think Forest City would’ve gone with an Otter mascot instead of a racoon or chipmunk.
I'm afraid I just couldn't help myself and did a spoof of this postcard. Visit Weird Hollow to see my version!
