Reward of Merit
Here’s a card that Great-Grandpa Phil received 101 years ago from his teacher, Florence M. Fortney, who praises his “punctual attendance, correct deportment, and diligent attention to studies.” This card is much thinner than a postcard, but thicker than paper; I estimate that it’s about half as thick as typical photo paper of today.
As a blogger, you too can have correct deportment: sign up for Postcard Friendship Friday, a brilliant idea from the brilliant Marie (whom henceforth I shall refer to as “my girl Friday”) over at Cpaphil Vintage Postcards. It doesn’t matter if your blog isn’t dedicated to postcards. And if you don’t have a blog, keep checking out my blog, her blog and all the cool blogs that sign up!
