Greetings from Bob!

A Christmas card from Mr. and Mrs. Robert Montgomery with Bob's hand-written "Greetings" on the cover.  How better to celebrate the season.  

There are three prancing deer embossed on the card, almost completely faded unfortunately.  The edge is silver, worn as well.  What is perfectly clear is the "Greetings" written by Bob.  Nice personal touch to an otherwise formal card. 

I'm guessing it's from the 1929 - 1931 period by the style, and no mention of family, i.e., Mr. & Mrs. Robert Montgomery & Family. 

A very, very nice memento to have.  Many thanks to the fortunate owner, Liz, for sharing it with us. 

I am sort of ready for Christmas - I never accomplish all my plans!  My husband has the outdoor lights up, a much dreaded task he undertakes every year on my behalf.  No snow for Christmas, but a chance of some much needed rain here in dry, very dry Bakersfield.  Good weather for bundling up in front of the fireplace with a glass of eggnog (with brandy, of course!) and some Christmas cookies to watch a favorite movie or two.  Oh, my ... they're playing Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas" on the radio.  Need to wrap this up before I become way too sentimental. 

I do wish all of you a Merry Christmas.  Please take the time to give an extra special hug to a family member or good friend, whether it be in person or in your thoughts.  It's a very good chance they will appreciate it much more than that great deal you found on Black Friday.
