Ottawa, Ontario

This group of Wallach items sent by Angus from Ottawa, is one of the more eclectic assortments I've ever been sent.  It's the first time I've ever received any of these four "cards" in the mail, and my all-time totals for them are extremely low as well.  In fact it's only my second copy of the Petro Stand-up, and the first one where the perforation has been broken allowing me to see it "standing up" in person for the first time.  Topped off with a nice note and Christmas card showing the Library of Parliament, this was an off-beat (but welcomed) submission to say the least. 

I went back and read what I wrote for the "Petro Standup," and Angus is right, I didn't call it a "card," but I did count it towards my card total.  I can understand how that sort of hypocrisy may be difficult to reconcile, so I made some edits, it's a "card" now.  Thank you very much for the cards Angus.
