The semantics of postcards

When I drive, I think of the inside lane as being that closest to the kerb & the outside lane as being that closest to the centre of the road. Lauren, my wife, the scientist in the family, uses the terms the other way around. So now, to avoid confusion, it's your side & my side depending on who's driving.

& so it is with postcards. I consider the front of a postcard to be that side with the address on, like an envelope. Apparently that's wrong. The address is on the back. So below is the back of Jukka's card.
