For the Enjoyment of my Friends and Readers...

I have been feeling a little under the weather today and have been resting. I am doing my best to recuperate from this silly ear infection before leaving for Florida. So, I am going to share some of my Christmas postcards and graphics. Relax and enjoy!

One of my older postcards. I added the greeting.

An old postcard depicting Santa hard at work.
