A comic postcard from the past.  Not sure how it would fly by today's standards.

In honor of this week's full Pink moon, I present a full moon scene at Kenosha, Wisconsin.

(Stamp was postally cancelled on April 31, 1919, which is a nice trick because there are only thirty days in the month of April.)

Dear Kate
I am up to my mother
& having a lovely time
Spring is a beautiful
season on a farm.  Are
you busy now or is
it to early.  The folks
have a great deal
planted already.  I wish
Joe & D were here.  The
only place.

(In about another twelve days this postcard will have been mailed exactly one hundred years ago. I'm assuming the postal clerk meant to set his cancellation stamp to April 30th.)

Well maybe..........  Or perhaps you have concrete proof of the Mandela Effect there Rixx.  It's a keeper!

Speaking of the moon, these three gents were instrumental in us getting there.  Gus Grissom, John Glenn  and Alan Shepard.
PS, Alan Shepard did make it to the moon.

I was drawn to this lady when I saw her picture on an eBay postcard auction.  I wouldn't take no for an answer and bid extra high so that I would get the card.  Actually, I think that only one other bidder tried for it, and I won it for like 75 cents or so.  Sadly, no name on the back of the card, so I must rely on my psychic sense to acquire some information on her.  I see the name Grace...I see beautifully cut gems for rings, etc. (jeweler) I see a somewhat vague husband...I see a beautiful, dark haired daughter in her early twenties...I see the number 93...and a grave, in a cemetery in Arizona.

I like the back of the card.  There seems to be some controversy on the lady's age.  At first, a definite 20 yrs old had been written, but was crossed off.  Above, a more uncertain abt 19 to 21 yrs of age was written.  A third line below notes abt 1920.  The twenty part of the third line is hard to see as it is somewhat worn away.

That's a handsome broad!
There was no great depression for the man who woke up beside her.

Do you think it’s Ouray instead of Cluray?
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.

It could definitely be an ''O''
