He preferred the meat pie.
An Old Fashioned Postcard I found On The Internet
This old postcard was made with my Great Grandparents name printed on it. Dated 1911 from my great grandma Lovina to her son in Nebraska
"My dear children I will write you to let you know of Grandpa He is doing better And aunt Bertha Rogers baby is at Ferndale hospital with pneumonia fever But was better yesterday I hope when this comes to hand it will find you all well Mother"
(My note: I have many old letters from the 18th & early 19 hundreds and find that punctuation was seldom used by my family. Was this true for everyone back then?)
This is my Great Aunt Effie Ecalbarger born in 1890 in Kansas City, Missouri. She is one of Lovina's children. I have never figured out why they always looked so sour in photographs. Anyone know?
I just learned that the name Effie is from the name Euphemia. Gracious!!
This looks weird but if you enlarge it you can see it is hundreds of snow frosted branches. This photo was taken out my back door a few years ago.
I got this in an e-mail a few days ago. I find it hard to believe that anyone would make a house in an iceberg! Wouldn't it melt from the heat source? Maybe this is someones idea of a joke!
Here's another place I would not live. Can you imagine an earthquake happening?
Hope you are having a great week-end! It's rainy and cold here and I'm on my way to the kitchen to make some popcorn and hot cocoa, put up my feet and watch a good movie!
God bless you all!
