Postcard Friendship Friday - Happy New Year!


I chose this beautiful postcard because of the lovely forget-me-not's and because it celebrates a century old New Year.




The message fits the flowers. The mysterious "L" says to Miss Effie: "Don't think I have forgotten you because I have not. Have been out of town for some time."

This is a loaded message - or perhaps unloaded. Just where has "L" been? Is he in the Merchant Marines? Foreign Legion? Waylaid by pirates? Off to jail for embezzlement? Married someone else and on his honeymoon?

And what about Miss Effie. Had she set her hat for "L" when they were introduced at Miss Eugenia Monswatt's Annual Autumn Fest Dinner Dance? Did he write his name on her dance card? Did Eugenia intentionally seat them next to each other at dinner?

Perhaps Miss Effie has already hinted to a friend or two that she has a suitor. Watched the empty mail box for the past 3 months. Been making table cloths and pillow cases for her hope chest. Obviously "L" has said something to lead Miss Effie on.

According to Mapquest, "L" is only about 15 miles southwest of Effie's abode. If the ferry is running, and he gets an early start in his new automobile he can arrive in plenty of time to take her to dinner on New Year's Day. I think he should, don't you? Miss Effie awaits. Does he have reservations?

Happy New Year Bloggyfriends!

A New Years wish from me to you:

God bless your year
Your coming in
Your going out
Your rest
Your traveling about
The rough
The smooth
The bright
The drear
God bless your year

All those forget-me-nots in the background must be part of the message too!
