Kookaburra – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC
“I’m Kizzie the Kookaburra. The thing I like best about spring is my new hair braids. I flew all the way over to Jamaica and they do it on the beach! I sipped a rum cocktail while they did my hair.”
This ATC went to Bonnie in Regina, SK, Canada.
I saw them doing this in Jamaica, when I was there in the early 80′s. I’m sure the locals laughed at all the goofy tourists. On the plane ride home, there were quite an assortment of sunburned, braid-headed girls and women. I even saw a few brave guys on the plane, with their beaded braids. I guess what happens in Jamaica doesn’t necessarily stay in Jamaica. he he
