Happy New Year - PFF!

This is another postcard I found in a dumpster years ago ...
It is addressed to "Cousin Tina" from "John C. Callahan".

If you look carefully, you will see a heart in one of the flowers!

Christmas Card - Germany, 1988

Some of my most favorite Christmas memories came from Germany ... where we lived for 3 years while my (ex) was stationed (US Army) in Kirchgoens.

I loved everything about Germany, but most of all the country during the Christmas season.

I had no idea Grammie kept this card, but I'm so glad she did.

A Postcard to Warm You

I couldn't resist posting this summery postcard for Beth's Postcard Friendship Friday. It's just that I'm so COLD - and I was hoping this would help me feel warmer!

Um, it's not working. I think my toes need to go back under the blankets!

This is one of several postcards I picked up at the Frankfurt Zoo back in 1988 or so ... it was a wonderful trip and we had so much fun!!!

Christmas Card - Grammie

I found this card in Grammie's papers ...
I'm not sure who Paul Deb and Bobbi Marc are, but they loved Grammie and that's all that matters!

Jackalope - Postcard Friendship Friday

I've heard of these for years ... and no matter how hard I've tried, I've never actually seen one in the wild.
The elusive Jackalope!

The back reads "Also often called the Antelabbit, this, the most amazing of all desert animals is reputed to be a cross between a Jack Rabbit and an Antelope. Rumor has it that the Jackalope sings at night, in a voice that sounds almost human."

I found this postcard in Grammie's papers ... I don't think she actually believed the Jackalope existed ... but she was on a trip and sent this to her beloved husband who was unable to go with her. Her words brought tears to my eyes ...

"Dearest Honey, we are now in New Mexico. Plan to head today to the Grand Canyon, and up through Utah and on home. Probly won't make it untill Monday. The air is sure healthy feeling. Well I've enjoyed this trip but will be glad to get home. I miss you. Oodles of love Your Wife."
