Early Luxury Cars time forgot:
Another Fraschina 1900-1948
Remembering my sister Shirley. She was a private person but loved to know about others. She seldom commented on FB but loved to read intimate things of other’s lives. I must give a little here, maybe there is some of that in US humans.
There are gossip columns people love. Then the ‘Rags’, on the level of the inquirer. A lot of that has dropped in ‘intensity’ since we have FB. I am just learning there are MORE places like FB that get even more intimate. I haven’t looked, and I do not NEED to know that. LOL
RELATED, but still a subject of ‘General & Intimate’ thoughts and information. Greetings Cards …. Birthday, Anniversaries and Christmas. It took a few Christmases but we now are down to a few cards, mostly family. (anyone notice it is now a half dollar a stamp?)
I am not sure of all families, but Sherry’s extended family has ‘Janet’, Vernon’s wife, a CARD person. I remember once hearing at a family gathering, “If I don’t get a birthday card from Janet I will know something is BAD WRONG.” (She should have had stock in Hallmark.) NOTICE: She had 12 siblings alone and they all had children and Vernon’s family had 7 siblings. They all got cards Christmas and Birthdays.
Maybe it is me, or men in general, but cards are down on the list of importance. To my SWEETHEART, cards are VERY important for ‘close’ friends and family. A card cannot say simply “Happy Birthday”, but to her sons it must say, “To Our Son”. The same with “To our Grandson” or to a “Grandson/Granddaughter on His/Her Birthday.” I have no problem with that, but she must pick them (I sorta go buggy at card racks). Also the VERSE must say the right thing.
I have to admit as I get older I DO read the verses, but there was a time ‘us boys’ DID appreciate the THOUGHT, but mainly, ‘Is there money inside?’, just being ‘male’ honest, as I remember.
Anyway Christmas is coming up, there isn’t the number of cards as once was, but still there will be cards.
PS: Thanks for taking time to stop by. I think we bloggers have noticed, blogging is going the way of greetings cards. ;-) and :-O and ;-(
