Annie from HB

 Hello Annie   How is your eye.  I hope it is getting better.  I am sorry you got hurt.  But if I would have been there  I would have caught the ball so it would not hurt you.  HB

To Anna from Rose B

Hello cousin.  I must drop you a card as I haven't seen you for a long time and didn't hear from you   what are you doing these fine days.  Where are you going the doubl dance.  I think I will join the Lake-Mary crowd.  Rose B.

Aunt Annie's Poppies -- a Sidetrack

According to my cousin Joyce, Aunt Annie and our grandmother Annie grew these poppies.  I got my seeds in Dallas from a neighbor who said she had gotten them in 1917 after her husband came back from WW1.  He remembered them from the fields in Europe. 

New Scanner, Retirement

The new scanner is installed and operational.  Retirement has begun -- but had a little side step with major retinal surgery.  Still learning the ins and outs of the new scanner but hope to get the last 40 or so cards scanned.

Unsigned Card

This is a very delicate card.  The front  white section is raised above the rest of the card.  The inside of the card says: 
By all the lies affection binds
And tendrils swee that true love winds,
For joy or grief, hor hope or fear,
For all hereafter as for here,
In peace or strife, in storm or shine,
My soul is wedded unto thine.

New Scanner

A new scanner has been purchased -- Hooray.  Just waiting for the computer man to help install.  Will have plenty of time since I have retired from my job.

No new scanner yet

I kept hoping the old one might decide to function -- but no luck, so it seems a new one is required.  Just haven't had time to decide which one will be best.  All suggestions welcome

Scanner Down

There are about 40 more cards -- but my trusty scanner has decided it is giving up the ghost, so I will have to replace it and will finish when I have the new scanner.  And thankfully, the price of good scanners is so much less than when I bought mine and the resolution is much higher.
