My blessed child

Our family was playing a board game together on New Year’s Eve. My youngest son needed to draw a certain type of card for his next turn. He said:

“Please God, let me draw the right card!”

I said, “God probably has more important things to do than help you find a game card.”

He then drew exactly the card he was hoping for and yelled, “No he doesn’t!”

Victorian Halloween

Sometimes I think it must have been terrifying to live in Victorian times just based on their holiday cards.

Ok, seriously. This artist hates frogs!

Before the year is out, I feel it’s important to once again touch on the subject of this card/ad artist who clearly has a problem with frogs. Did a frog kill his dad? Are they just swarming his house?

Horrible Vintage Christmas cards pt.6

Again with the frogs. What is it with this era and dead frogs at Christmas time? Or did this artist just really have it in for frogs?

Merry Christmas everyone!

No cackling!

It’s already time to look ahead to spring trips. I found a lovely apartment in Rome, but I’m a bit confused by some of the house rules:

Guests are asked not to cackle and have a decent attitude in public areas of the building; so as not to throw the cards out of the windows or anything else.

So…. no card playing witches?  Can I give a hearty laugh while in the building as long as it’s not a cackle? What type of cards can I not throw out the window? Greeting cards? Playing cards? Is this really a problem in this neighborhood?
