Happy Valentines Day

By 15th February 2017Mailart

These are not cards I have made, but I found these in a box of mementos that my mother saved. These two cards were made for me by the girl next door on 14 Feb 1948 when I was four months old. My mother saved them with a lock of my hair from my first hair cut at eight months old. She discarded many mementos and other items over the years, but she kept these.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, in 1947. I was a classroom teacher of various subjects for 25 years before becoming a school librarian at which I labored for 18 years. I finally retired at the end of the 2015/16 school year, figuring that 43 years was long enough. I have been married for 44 years and have five children and three grandsons.
