Dear Mrs Yocom: How are
you and your new boy?
What do Thelma. Tommy
think of it?  I would like
to see them.  I suppose they
have grown to be big children.
We are all pretty well now.
Marian went to school this
spring.  Has Thelma gone yet?
Have you named the baby?
Let me hear from you once
in awhile  with kindest
regards to all I am as ever
your friend (?) M. Wyatt.

I love how you can get a general generation by they style of the script used.
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.

Very cool! Wish I could read the year clearly, but since I was born in 1946, they had to be visiting when I was very little or not even born yet! 😁

@Jayzelady, that is a 1940 postage stamp on the back of the card.  It is a one cent Statue of Liberty stamp and it was one of a three stamp series on National Defense.

Awesome!!!! I love old postcards! You can learn a lot about past times and people from the pictures and messages they carry.
