Happy New Year 2023

I want to wish you all a very happy new year 2023!

I’ll be brief, just an old postcard, although it’s a bit more recent than the other old postcards I usually post here (and one of my new year’s resolutions is to post more of them.)

Bonne Annee 1946

And here is the other side:

Bonne Annee 1946 verso


Dear Godfather and Godmother,

I’m sending you this card to wish you a Happy New Year 1946 from all of us. I hope this little girl must be (sic) very cute. Kisses to the whole family. Here, everyone is healthy.



One of the advantages of this card being more recent is that I know who’s writing it and who is alluded to in the card. The person writing, Ida, is one of my grandmother’s nieces. She only died two years ago, and I knew her (although, I must have been a teen or a young adult the last time I saw her). And the little girl she’s alluding to is my dad’s younger sister, aka my aunt, and she’s still doing well.

That’s all for today.

See you very soon.
