The message on the postcard reads:
Honey, wrote you a nice letter, but it is in Clearwater. Forgot to mail it. Will mail it when we get back. Having a swell time down here. Wish you were here. Write me. How is Nonie. Tell her to write - we are going to Cuba tomorrow. Are down here with 4 other couples from Phil. Charlie said tell you he loves you.
The mailing address, in Dearborn Michigan (The Automobile Capitol of the World) no longer exists. It was probably razed to make way for the widening of Telegraph Road. Prior to I-75 this was a main thoroughfare for traveling to the south.
The Back Story:
Fay and Charlie (the big spender) have gone off on another one of their lavish vacations. Charlie has hit it big in advertising, now that the war is over and there are things to advertise about. His latest ad "9 out of 10 Doctors recommend Philip Morris Cigarettes" has gotten him another one of those big bonuses Fay's always bragging about. Bess just wishes they would come home to Dearborn once in a while.
She has to do all her own canning now that Faye is married. Faye used to do the green beans just so - standing them up in the jars like soldiers. Bess let Nonie do them this year and they're just floating around in the jars like a bunch of little alligators. The lids look a bit puffy too......
Letter my $#^&@! Faye always says she forgot to mail a letter in her postcards. At least Bess has something to show off at the next meeting of the Ladies Guild.
Cuba? Why in the world are they going to Cuba? They don't even speak Spanish. How are they going to eat? They could starve to death and get lost.
They keep flying around the country on those hoity toity aero-planes. Why, Bess and her late husband were perfectly content taking a cottage in Brighton Michigan for two weeks in the summer. She hopes Faye will at least see her way clear to coming up for a while in the spring. The peonies need dividing. And what about a few grandchildren???? They need to settle down and start a family!
