Thanks for stopping by! Would you like a cup of tea or coffee? And please, sit for a spell. If you enjoy my posts, please feel free to follow me or subscribe to my blog. This is a word verification free, family friendly blog, so everything I share here is for all ages. I am a happily married man in my late sixties who lives on the Wirral peninsula, near Liverpool, in the UK.
I'm a blogger - and nowadays that seems to be my main occupation. Rambles from My Chair is my main blog. I’m a retired local government executive - now studying how to survive a neurological disorder that gives me various problems but, hopefully, a whole new outlook on life and an increased sense of humour and perspective. There is a saying in Sweden "man måste vara frisk för att orka vara sjuk" ~ "you have to be well to cope with being ill"....
I enjoy most forms of communication and postcards are a special favourite. I used to blog as Scriptor Senex which is Latin for Old Writer but now Google only lets me post as John Edwards.

I am such a squirrel that I have great difficulty throwing anything away. I am now getting a bit better at it because I can scan things into the computer and then dispose of the original. Even then there is a bit of me (the old librarian part?) that says the original ephemera should be kept for posterity! By contrast, Mum managed to get her paper keepsakes down to a couple of file folders before she died - and she'd lived a lot longer than I have! Sorting through those folders I came across this card from GB. I suspect he was about twelve when he gave it to her. I wish my handwriting had been that legible at twelve (or any age!).
