Happy Postcard Friendship Friday

I had intended to post this beauty on "Father's Day" and then promptly forgot. It was in my folder for Post Card Friendship Friday, hosted by Beth of the Best Hearts are Crunchy.

This card is another of the gold mine, that my friend Nancy sent me, that she bought for ME in Paris. I love it. I can picture my mom and dad in this scenario with my sister Donna. My mom and dad often said they were so happy to have her "LIVE" as they had lost three infants prior to her during WWII. mostly to hunger, or lack of medication. Donna was dearly loved. Since my parents were post-war New Canadians there was not a lot of money for pictures so I would have to scan the faces of the family in. But, nonetheless I love this card. Happy Postcard Friendship Friday.

I had to add a post script to this post, (not sure that's proper grammar) but I don't collect cards that have not been circulated and Nancy even managed to fit this one into that category, it however does not have the stamp on the reverse side, it's in the upper right hand corner, it's that cool?

that's a sweet father card. Most old French postcards seem to have the stamp on the picture side.

That card is a real beauty! I've always assumed the stamps were put on the front in the days when only the address was allowed on the reverse. They must have followed instructions very literally in France.
