While the Christmas snow lay deep and bright
May you be blest with all your heart's delight
I'm really not sure what to make of this odd photo postcard showing a vaguely Father Christmas-ish (or Phil Robertson) looking gentleman with fir boughs on his head, holding a doll dressed in what looks like a Chinese or Japanese dress and a ... white, long-legged dog?
This is from the Rotary Photographic Postcard Series
but then, you read the message on the back, sent to a Miss Williamson in Hastings, Ontario.
Mamma said she promised that I would write to you. She had no business promising anything like that because it takes a certain amount of my precious time to write a long postcard like this. I will be home for 4 or 5 days. Wishing you a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year. Robbie
Let's hope Robbie and Miss Williamson shared a history and a sense of humour!
All of us at PostcardFriendshipFriday share things in common.
Certainly had an opinion of himself didn't he?ReplyDelete
this is when you wish you had some follow-up cards to see how the relationship moves on!Delete
What fun! LOL I wish we knew the rest of the story. Merry Christmas, sweet Violet.ReplyDelete
And Happy Postcard Friendship Friday! LOL
I love the card, but the writer sounds like a jerk.ReplyDelete
Oh my that message a little scary.ReplyDelete
What are you doing for Christmas?ReplyDelete
That is hilarious. Thankfully, everyone is long gone by now! Interesting archive!ReplyDelete
Cheers from Cottage Country Ontario , ON, Canada!
Hilarious! The card, the message and all! Someone should write the book.ReplyDelete
WHat a cryptic message! And an odd, odd postcard picture.ReplyDelete
Funny message on the back of the card! Must have been written by a spoiled kid. ;))ReplyDelete
I also like the look in the eyes of that "Santa"--he'd take a person on a merry ride, all right.
Funny! I got a postcard from an ex-boyfriend on vacation when I was sixteen that said "Having a great time, wish you were here." Lucky for him I knew he was a kidder. Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
