gifts to the next generation

If I were given the opportunity to present a gift to the next generation, it would be the ability for each individual to learn to laugh at himself.
Charles M. Schulz

thOn this date in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas aired for the first time. The TV show was based upon the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. Did you know this show has been on TV every year since? It was also honored with both an Emmy and a Peabody award. To be honest, as a child it used to make me feel so sad.  Still, Charles M. Schulz’ work was genius and he sure brought a lot of joy into the world with his Peanuts characters. I once read where he said Charlie Brown was basically him as a boy. Good grief, Charlie Schulz, I hope not. That would make me sad too. Here’s a clip from A Charlie Brown Christmas.



Vintage Greetings

train cardAs mentioned earlier this month, my husband and I are building a vintage postcard scrapbook — one postcard at a time. The album covers 100 years from 1860 to 1960 and has many slots yet to be filled. In the spirit of the season from now until New Year’s Day, I’ll share cards from my collection.

One of our best lithograph cards.  The colors are perfect. Most likely this is due to the fact it was once pasted in a book. It still has bits of a page glued to the back.  🙂
