May You Always Be What You Are Today …. My Valentine
February 8, 1910: Dear Cousin, Will send you a valentine card .. hope you are all well. I am not feeling very good this week hope I will get better .. would like to see your folks … did you have your pictures taken yet, From Mary.
This is one of many postcards that I bought on eBay that were sent to Mrs. Bertha Dicus of Alanson, Michigan. I love these old cards, the graphics, etc., but mainly I really enjoy reading many of the messages. Some carried simple messages, funny thoughts, and humorous or sad emotions.
Aside from enjoying these old cards for different reasons, I have to wonder how did Bertha’s postcards end up on eBay? Didn’t anyone want to keep them? That makes me sad, too.
