Best wishes for a good Thanksgiving. Print One Only Copyrighted by International Art Pub. Co., New York, Berlin.  Printed in Germany.  [Hand written in the upper corner: Hope you have a big dinner]

No post mark.  No Address.

“Detroit 11/13/1908   Miss F. [Florence] Koontz, This is the ninth post card that I have sent you and have only one in return.  I just think you are real mean.  L.W. [Lee Weaver]”

OK, not sent, but unknown if it got to  Grandma inside an envelope.  Obviously, Grandpa was getting a bit upset.  This was 1908, Grandpa was 15, Grandma was 13.  Apparently, they worked it out.

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
