Roy's Postcards: 1983/03/24

Inscription:

(LEONARD) I went to the Natural History Museum while Mommy, Rachel & Susanna stayed home. I was scared of the triceratops. We saw some dinosaur footprint stickers on the floor and we saw dinosaurs.

We saw a purple pterodactyl outside.

Postcard front:

PTERODACTYLUS

Postcard back:

AD-3 PTERODACTYLUS. A flying reptile from the Late Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods. It was a relatively small animal, generally no bigger than a large hawk, and was probably better at gliding than actual flying.

Leonard's comments:

Wow, whoever wrote this card copy certainly had it in for pterodactyls. (This card is tagged 'dinosaurs' because dinosaurs are mentioned in the text, not because pterodactyls are dinosaurs.)

The "dinosaur footprint stickers" probably pointed the way to a special dinosaur exhibition.
