Something more …..

….. to play with! I was rummaging through some old papers, photos and postcards tonight and I came across this postcard written to my late Grandfather, Frans by his little sister Marie! It is dated November 1914 so that must have been during the First World War when he was stationed in Kimberley!


I think I am so lucky to have some remnants of the past! They are few and far between and I do treasure them.

This postcard made me giggle and think ‘so there were “naughty” postcards even then.’ LOL

On my Mom’s side I am of Dutch descent and on my Dad’s, I am a direct descendant of one of the many British families, the 1820 Settlers, who came to South Africa for a ‘new life’.

Please use these creatively for your own use.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great weekend and JUST ENJOY!

That will be wonderful Chriss! I have to think of ways of keeping you out of mischief (or is that meant to be 'in' mischief?)
