Gaye & Leo Get Hitched [1985 – Williamsburg, Va]

1985 Williamsburg, VA postcard image lg

Gaye seems to think getting married is not much of a big deal. There are many beautiful spots in Colonial Williamsburg to tie the knot, so I hope they were happy with their choice of locales. I’m sure “the kids” were glad to see her at the end of her travels. There’s no telling, however, how her new husband felt about them though. Perhaps he was a cat-guy.

Dear Leonora & Jim,

Leo & I got married here in Williamsburg yesterday. Is a beautiful area. On to D.C. & Binghamton. Back in Miami Sept 16. Sent “the kids” to boarding school. Probably won’t get a meow when I return.

Love Gaye

Without a Blueprint [1951, N. Dakota]

Fargo ND 1951 Postcard

I love how the message on the comic side, “Just Married,” matches perfectly with the life events on the reverse. It seems that every possible milestone and location has been mentioned, from one coast to the other (Maine to California) and even the big sky country in between. This postcard is delightfully all over the place.
