When Grief Crowds Your Day -Postcard Friendship Friday #466



This past week I received devastating news.   A young man whom I've known for many years, who had spent time volunteering in our non-profit organization, took his own life.

If you are thinking of taking that way out, please PLEASE talk to someone before going through with it.  The pain and devastation left behind a suicide is more than words can describe...It may seem like an easy out--but taking your own life is a final solution to a passing circumstance--even though it may feel the circumstances you face are permanent.

Nothing is permanent in life.  Please, get some help.  You know who you are.  God knows and I am praying for you.

I have no other words to say just now--only sadness.  Please join me in praying for his precious family.

Postcard Friendship Friday--Should I continue?


I have been hosting Postcard Friendship Friday for over five years now.  Sadly, there hasn't been anyone linking postcards, or leaving comments for a very time.

Is there anyone out there still interested?  Please let me know--even if there is just one person, I'll keep posting PFF.

Otherwise, though I will still post vintage items from my collection, Postcard Friendship Friday will become a thing of the past. 

Have a good weekend.

Summer Beauties -Postcard Friendship Friday #465




These two are having great fun.  I wonder what they would think of today's swimsuits?  They are delightful for the time.

I hope you are having a GREAT summer!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Eating Summer Apples -Postcard Friendship Friday #464


I adore this picture.  She looks so sneaky.  I remember swiping apples to take them underneath the back of our home where I ate them with glee.

I hope you are having a lovely day, dear Friends.  Summer is here!  And it is HOT!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Fishing Old School -Postcard Friendship Friday #463


Summer is in full swing.  I am not sure how this lovely lady is keeping a seat on that slippery rock while catching a fish.  Haha--I would not have wanted to be a nearby swimmer for sure!

One of my first summers in this town, I was sitting by the river's edge, when only a few feet away, a big old salmon leaped out of the water--twice!  Talk about a surprise--and the instant wish for a fishing pole.

It is just starting to get hot here in the Mid-Willamette Valley.  I am glad for summertime and its sunny days.

Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

A Modern Siren



Even in the age when swimsuits were not as small as they are today--this young woman is lovely.  I like the sleeves on that vintage suit--and there's no denying the young man finds her attractive.

Summer days are here!  I'm blessed in that from where I live, I'm an hour from the desert, the mountains, the forests and the ocean--it just depends upon which direction I decide to take!

Have a lovely week everyone!

Happy Fourth of July!


Happy Fourth of July!  I have a ton of people at my house today, and there are fireworks tonight and Saturday night.  I'm looking forward to all the folderol.

In the meantime, have a great weekend wherever you are!

Uncle Sam is a Blast! -Postcard Friendship Friday #462


This postcard is so colorful and perfect for American's Fourth of July celebration.  However, I still can't help shuddering a little when I see how close the firecracker is to that boy's face as he lights it!  Vintage postcards sometimes have the most unlikely images.

In the meantime, next Thursday, here in the USA, we celebrate the Fourth of July.  I'm looking forward to friends and family arriving and the fun and fellowship we will share.

I am grateful for the freedom we have in America.  God bless America!  Happy celebrations, and Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!

Will You go off with me on the Fourth?


It is hard to believe the Fourth of July, American's celebration of its Independence, is just one week away.  I will have a bunch of friends and family here for the entire extended weekend starting Wednesday night.  It is going to be so much fun.

I just love these vintage celebratory Fourth of July pieces.  The caption for this one is especially clever.

Have a marvelous day!

Riding a Rocket -Postcard Friendship Friday #461


I love these vintage Fourth of July postcards.  Their bright colors and total disregard for the safety of  children is amazing!  Though I have to admit, riding on a rocket like this young fellow, seems like it might be great fun.

When I was a little girl, I can remember sitting on Daddy's shoulders watching fireworks.  We would go to the Alpenrose Dairy every Fourth of July.  It was a grand tradition for years and years.

These days there's a fabulous parade which goes right past my place, as well fireworks over the river only four blocks away.  We have a big potluck that day and lots of folks come to sit and watch the parade.

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays.  It nearly rivals Christmas!

Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are, dear Friends!  Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
