My Grandfather as a Young Man

 

2019_06_06_15_39_54.pdf000  I found this photo recently in my mother’s archive,  My grandfather is with his 3 daughters in 1923,  At that time the family was living in Omaha Nebraska.  My mother is the 11 year o;d on the right.

I have titled this to indicate my grandfather was young but that’s a relative term.  Actually he was almost 50 in 1923,  But my image of him has always been of him as an older man in his 70’s and early 80’s – when I knew him,

Oh if only this card could speak – instead I’ll have to think up the story it might tell.

Once upon a time, long ago, I had a scholarship to study in Nancy in the North of France. For a variety of reasons I decided not to avail myself of this honor.  A path not taken.

Postcard Sunday Is Near

The first Sunday of each month a meeting of the Pacific Northwest Postcard Collectors Club is held.  In anticipation of the March meeting I am going to post some of my cards.  I’m never quite sure what I am going to look for, nor what I am going to find, at each meeting.That’s part of the fun.Last month I got sort of carried away by Sheep.  The seller has promised to bring more “sheep” cards this month.  I am also going to be on the lookout for dogs and cats.  And cards from places where I have lived and traveled.
