41|365 Heart Holder (2/14/11)
Do you remember making valentine holders or mailboxes at school to put your cards in? In February 1968 I was in 2nd grade and at school we made a decorated heart shaped folder. I kept mine along with some of the cards I received. Some of the cards are from the kids at school, who I no longer remember, but there’s one from my cousins, Terri & Curtis (signed by my Aunt) and another from my Grandma.
Grandma printed her note because that’s all I would have been able to read at the time. It says:
Dear Kay Lynne,
Have a happy day and think of me.
How do you like your new school? How far are you from school? Do you have girl friends in your new neighborhood?
I wish you could see Tonya Rena, she tries to pull herself up and she tries to set alone. She weighs about 17 lbs now.
Well, I had better go mail this.
I love you,
We moved to Odessa, Texas in Febrary 1968 and I didn’t like anything about it. Thankfully, we lived there a very short time and, in fact, moved in April 1968. During that time of my life we moved a lot. My scrapbook helped create some lasting things in my world of constant change of homes and friends.
Of note today: Not feeling the best but am home with the one I love.
