life lesson from edith

This postcard (postmarked October 27, 1942) features the Mayo Clinic by night:

The stoic Edith writes to Miss Grace E. Thielman in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania...

Tuesday noon
Just been thru some very severe tests. I believe the worst one comes this afternoon. Don't feel particularly peppy but I guess I can take it. Edith

Yep, sometimes that's the way of things. We might not feel peppy, but we guess we can take it.

I miss old time speaking. They had graceful ways of saying things like they were, didn't they?

Even with technology...sometimes all the "finding out" can leave many feeling "not very peppy"...of course some of my "normal days" do that as well. **smiling**
