What, no cable?

Two things:

''Roads were good all way'' - remember when that wasn't a given?

Diner's, American Express.  I wonder how many people had credit cards in 1967.


OK, a third.  That stamp came off a full sheet, not the usual coil with flags or presidents.  I wonder if she took it (the sheet) with her, bought it there, or if they just sold a few to her off a sheet at the post office.

An actual photo of Carl has been attached to the card.

Did he have it made just in case he ever got a girlfriend to send it to?

The scan seems to show the picture as if it were pasted on top of the card, but if I remember right, it was attached from inside the card and is showing through an opening.  Lots of work for a card that was never sent.

Don't we have an EllGabber that loves wood siding indoors? It has to be either @sean92008 or @KSM . Bask in its glory, boys.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I like rough-sawn planks or slats.  Roofing shingles, eh, too visually busy.  Probably great for acoustics though.

One thing can be said... The roofing shingles were probably fire resistant, even back in the day.

Eh, nevermind...

I had assumed they were wood siding (shake?-am I making that up?) anyway, sorry you hate it.

Postmarked March 18, 1966.

Dear Cleora: Sorry I haven't
written sooner but time
flys faster than you think.
We get the Gazette & I try to
keep up home news.  Betty
& Jean write real often.  The
weather real nice & warm.
I wished I could bring some
home with me.  According
to Girls your weather isn't
too bad.  Will see you soon.
     Irene & Ray.
