thirsty

Did you ever feel like you could really use a good friend? Or at least a decent drink of water?!

M.C.C. felt that same way -- back in August of 1910. She wrote:

Dear Papa - I have written to everyone else and no one seems to answer so I am going to try you. Everything is going fine, but I want a drink of good water awfully bad. Hope mamma is better. With love, M.C.C.

Here's the front and back of the postcard:

Such wisdom...a good friend can be like a drink for a thirsty person.

Are these postcards from your family?

Thanks everybody! :)

Purple, These postcards aren't from my family. I recently started collecting old postcards (from ND,SD,MT,MN and miscellaneous roads!)
