Inspired by one of Myra's
recent blog posts, I had planned to do a BIG post about postcards. I have over three hundred postcards that I've collected since I was a kid. And I have at least a hundred cards that my father got during WWII when he was in Europe, Italy, and Africa.
I was excited about my potential endeavor...
....until....I realized that pictures of the postcards would only look good if they were scanned. Unfortunately, my printer/scanner isn't working.
I tried to take photos of the cards and they turned out horrible - - fuzzy and blurry (kind of like my mind...).
So, I'll only share a few, and save my Big Postcard Post for another time (when I have a working scanner).
Have you ever seen wooden postcards? I got these when I lived in the Missouri Ozarks. They're made of real (thin) wood.
Ever see a round postcard?
My cousin Nancy's parents (Aunt Ann and Uncle Jack) sent this when they went on a skiing trip to the Austrian Alps. Can't read the postmark so I don't know what year it was. 1970s or 80s.
I got these postcards in Mexico when I was about fifteen. The dresses on the senoritas are made with real fabric.
Sorry for the inferior quality of the photos.
My entire life has been inferior quality lately - I'm plagued with problems and health issues, but I'll spare the grim details. Some days I'd like to just crawl into bed and never emerge again.....
One the bright side (assuming that there might be one) - - I'm seriously thinking of getting a new computer. My laptop is working fine but it's over six years old and won't last forever. I saw a computer that I really like in Walmart. It's a sleek desktop HP that doesn't have a cumbersome old fashioned "tower" or thousands of connecting wires. I'll be able to finish writing my memoirs
(I'm sure you're waiting with breathless anticipation).
I have been so SERIOUSLY depressed over the messy clutter in this small house that I FINALLY did something over the Easter weekend.
Junk was haphazardly piled up to the ceiling in two of the bedrooms (I have three bedrooms). I cleaned up everything, got rid of all the clutter, and made the rooms look decent.
This long-overdue task lifted a weight off my shoulders.
I'm now in the process of doing my bedroom (the largest of the three). I plan to paint the walls and get some new "throw" rugs.
When I'm finally finished (soon I hope) the house will look completely clean and decent.
(there's always an inevitable "but")
next I have to completely clean out the garage - which is an absolute nightmare.
Here's Kitzee enjoying the front porch yesterday (some white blossoms in the background).
Bosco was out of camera range.
