Roy's Postcards: 1983/11/05

Inscription:

When I walked into the National Museum of Natural History today I spied this whale smiling at me. It is quite enormous. I also saw other exhibits of sea life and an insect farm where they had live scorpions, tarantulas, bees, mantis', black widow spider, centipedes, millipedes, sow bugs and several other insects.

Leonard's comments:

That's pretty haphazard since the bees and mantises are the only true insects in that list. Blue whale sculpture: awesome.
