This postcard was written in Manhattan, Montana in 1975 and features a photo of the Gallatin River. I was attending college in Montana during that time, and I know I was on this stretch of road myself then.
Here's the back:
Dear Friends: We had a nice flight and Dad has been getting stronger each stormy day. He insists on sweeping the daily snow. Ann is seeing lots of classmates and old boy FRIENDS. We saw where the three rivers combine to form the Missouri. Ann and (I) have found a Bowling Alley so we get by. The weather has been like Nebr. (in) January.
Fust it rained, then it snew.
then it Friz, and then it blew.
Much LOVE, Ann & Ted
Here are the top 3 reasons I like Ted:
1. He gives his partner a playful poke about running into old boyfriends. (Of course, it's possible Ted and Ann are brother and sister, but the playful poke is still good.)
2. He is happy with the simple things -- seeing the rivers that form the Missouri and bowling.
3. He is an awesome poet. (Hey, his poem even rhymes.)
