  1. I love the second one. Too bad we don't make these kinds of things any more.

  2. Happy Thanksgiving to you Jon. Of course I like the one with the cow standing in the water.

    1. The cow card is one of my favorites. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Paula.

  3. I wonder if that's not Scratch's g-g-g-great grandfather poised before the fire.
    These are comforting images, indeed.

    1. Myra, the very reason I chose that postcard is because he reminded me of my cat Bosco. They must be related somewhere way down the line.

    1. I have some vintage postcards, too - but I'm too greedy to part with them.

  5. Wonderful cards and sentiments, Jon. It's a time for my few surviving friends to call and recommend a restaurant. Cooking isn't one of our strong points here --several Thanksgiving turkeys have been indistinguishable from Plymouth Rock.

    2. Geo, I've eaten a few turkeys that tasted like Plymouth Rock.
      I love to cook, but lately I have no one to cook for, except the trio of cats.

    1. I actually thought the guy on #3 was a woman in drag. I suppose there were gay Pilgrims.....

      Kitty in #5 did remind me of Bosco.

  7. Oh I loved looking at these, each one. How charming, a sweet look at how we felt about a day in our history, no matter what it means now to anyone. This was lovely.
