Roy's Postcards: 1983/06/09

Inscription:

On the way to the airport, we drove by the Superdome on the freeway. It is very large as indicated in this postcard. I am now sitting at the airport waiting for my flight to get ready to leave. I am looking out across the runway at Interstate 10, past which I see a train of oil tankers and piggybacks. Behind this is 50 ft high forest which well may be delta swamps which we saw when we landed.

Leonard's comments:

1. My dad must have been really bored in the airport. 2. This postcard is rich in dramatic irony.
