FROM THE PAST
These are old postcards I found
in a stack of my mum's photos. I thought they're worth a gander. Please
don't be offended at the somewhat skewed way they look at life, these aren't
meant to be biased in any way, just a reminder of another time. And they're
funny, dammit. They really are, if you can see them for what they are.
So, if you're easily offended (why you're at *my* page then, I have NO
idea) go to kinder waters.
A typical postcard from the Korean War. This is
from Lee Dong Su, a Korean soilder who stayed with my mother's family
for some time in the States. He's safe in Hawaii, obviously, wishing the
family well after they fostered him for a lengthy stay, according to the
back. What you expect to see in a postcard collection, right? Then I saw
Ah, I think perhaps we have many delightful stereotypes!
On the back of the one on the left it asks "are you or aren't
you" in pencil. Guess mum might've been expecting! hehehe....
Me pop's a bounder!
I feel like chicken tonight.... remember those wacky commercials?
It's a beautiful world. isn't it? Nothing
is sacred. Thank ghud. Nothing should be. Not even ghuds.
Also from Lee Dong Su. He had a wicked humour, that one. I shan't
repeat what's on back, except he states he's been drinking.... hehe!
Only in the States could life be so grand. Postcards. Wish I had
more racy postcards. For their time, these were apparently quite the knee
slappers. And eyebrow raisers. My, how we've changed. We've gotten much
more foul, yet soooo much more sensitive. Politically correct. Makes ya
gag, donnit? Sorry, 'tis all there is, aside from the headless lamb one,
and I used it elsewhere.
