Sorting Saturday - Honeymoon Postcard

Yep.  I'm still sorting through all the stuff I scanned while visiting my grandmother a few weeks ago. I happened across this scanned postcard that my grandmother sent to her mother-in-law (my great grandmother, Mary Alice Schneider) while the couple were honeymooning at Lake Okoboji, Iowa, in August 1944.  Yes, I had already forgotten about it.

I need to get the story behind my grandfather's apparent foot injury and why my grandmother wouldn't go in the water.  Guess that's something else for the to-do list!


A recent photo (2005-ish) of Lake Okoboji can be found here.  It's a little scary how similar the view is to the postcard above.

I love old postcards.

You granmother was quite a bit more chatty than my ancestors were. Mine usually detail what they just had to eat...

Thanks Dee! Apparently she wasn't chatty enough ... left me with some unanswered questions :)
