    1. I'm not sure they are Valentine's Mae. I think they were posters of some kind. I'll be sharing Valentine's on Friday.

  2. I was confused by the hearts -- thought that made them valentines.

    1. I chose these two because of the hearts Mae. They were also the least offensive. Some of the other ones I have are not fit to print, lol...

    1. I'm not sure if they were meant as a joke, Johanna. I can't even figure out what year they could be from. I'm thinking 30s or 40s.

    1. I really debated about posting these John. Not my kind of humor either. The final yes came from Marion. Perhaps she remembers them from long ago.

  18. I am speechless. My daughter just called me and quoted from a textbook something about "the little woman's driving" and more. She said she was irritated with it and I said it must be referencing something old so she checked & found out it was from the 60's. Then I was able to smugly tell her "see all the things you never had to deal with..."

  21. Those are soooooo funny. I think Marion and I have a similar sense of humor. I for one have seen some cards by Hallmark that are very close to these. You should see the cards that Bob and his brother send one another.

none returned too late.
