Thank you, Alan for letting me choose this week's picture! I chose it because I had begun a post about the U.S. Wakerobin awhile back, and thought that it would go well with this picture as it offer's up plenty of other prompting. Then I found some Letsom Letters family postcards that also go with this week's theme, so I will be having two posts this week. This one is quick and easy though.
|G. M. Walbee must have just been letting Uncle Kit know that he was thinking of him.|
|It was postmarked June 29, 1939|
|Uncle John and Aunt Signa never sent this one out when they were on their honeymoon, but it must have been before they got that darn old flat tire.|
|11/23/45 - "Dear Folks, Every thing going fine."|
|This one says that it is "Columbia River and Crown Point from Evergreen Highway Washington -35"|
|My Grandma Florence Hedrick Traylor send this one home to her Mom, Granny Talitha Hedrick|
We are in Vancouver and about cooked. Also slightly tired. Edna and I walked all over this town. This card is the way we went to Stevenson. Cloe, Edna and I are sitting in the car waiting for Bill. The check in this picture is where Maud lives says Cloe. I'm still broke. Wish you'd pay attention to that. How's everybody and everything? What have you been doing lately?
I haven't been doing anything worth telling on a card. You owe me a letter now. I weight 121 lbs. **!!!???
Postcardy commented: "It is fun reading messages like Florence's that actually say something. She is referring to the "check" mark in the upper right of the picture" Thank you for your help!
