Well, this one came next. It says "Your sister said she would abuse me if I didn't write to you." Kind of hard to make out the signature. Something that starts with a "J", it looks like. So Critter, if you feel the need to abuse somebody, don't start with the "J's". He performed admirably.
I stared at this one for a few minutes when I got it and said "I have no idea what this says, but that looks oddly familiar."
Turns out I was right. It's written in Klingonii. It says:
"Today is a good day to die!"
"We are Klingons!"
Trekkies will never die, brave warrior.
And this one is the last one I got. From the word at the top, "Sawubona" I figured out that it was written in Zulu. "Sawubona" means "I see you."
It must be a dialect that my translator didn't have. All I could decipher was that he was a builder and he knows my sister. After that things got a little fuzzy. I got part of a translation that said something about "With the heart always who appear from the plans", which doesn't sound right at all.
I'll keep looking.
And thanks to NoisyFrogPond I am now hot on the trail of this one from the other day:
She says that the script is Armenian. So maybe I can track down an Armenian speaker who could translate it for me. Whoo Hoo!
If I could just find an Armenian Zulu I could kill two birds with one stone!
And that's all of the postcards I have for now. Will there be more? I guess we'll just wait and see.
