Pretty funny, I like this Mosquito Card. They must be pretty bad in Minnesota. And I thought they were bad in South Florida.

I love Mosquito as state bird postcards - they are one that I will buy every time I see one, new or vintage. I'm tying to get one from all 50 states, but there is still a lot I'm missing.
