A Postcard Found

IMG_5434

A postcard I purchased quite a few years ago at one of the Dublin City Bookfairs.  I thought the woman resembled my mother.  It disappeared for years, but today it unexpectedly  reappeared.  Hooray.  I still think the presumably English woman resembles my mother.

In this photo taken in Lincolnshire in 1934, the woman in the center is my mother (but before she married and gave birth to me)

A Place Forgone

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 Day

It was a day for going through boxes and boxes of postcards at the meeting of the Postcard Collectors Club.  I found some nice cards to add to my collection.

For example – isn’t he a cutie?

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.
