In Honor of my Parents Love

This is a repost from my old blog with the same name at Blogspot.

This week we had a wonderful family reunion that led to a wonderful discovery.

I asked my mom to bring me some old photo albums so I could compare Millie to myself.

She unearthed a wonderful find, an old postcard.

I love this old Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes Post card. Tony the Tiger has had a few makeovers since then for sure!


The postmark is August 24, 1966. She writes about the rain and going swimming. At the end she mentions a boy asking to sit beside her, but says she didn’t like him all that well.

That same boy asked her to the camp fire at the end of camp, she didn’t want to go with him, but she was kinda pushed by a friend and….

After almost fifty years he is still sitting beside her. They were married 4 years later.  They have 3 kids and 8 Grand kids. Not bad for not liking the guy! 🙂

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day to my Mom and Dad!
