I’m thankful that in this great big blog world we have connected.
If you’ve read my about page, you know I’m a writer and an antiques dealer/collector. Ephemeron fascinates me. That’s why I chose this particular greeting today.
Not familiar with the term?
Ephemera (the plural form) refers to something transitory or short-lived. Items like pamphlets, notices, tickets, postcards or greeting cards designed to be useful or important for only a short time. In this age of technology, we’re losing ephemera. Especially old postcards like these.
Each card undoubtedly has a story. Who was Ray and why did he send a Thanksgiving card to Baby? Were Marguerite and Grandma feuding and needed to join hands? There’s definitely a story connect to that one.
The writers among us could probably plot some compelling stories based on these old postcards. I think that’s why I find ephemeron so intriguing.
But just for today, let’s forget about writing.
And most important, remember to take the giblets out of the turkey!
Thanks for showing up today to read my blog.
I’m going to enjoy my blessings today.I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving day with your family and friends.
See you here on the 26th.
Happy Thanksgiving, Judythe. Love the old postcards. I’ve collected a few myself. Funny you should mention the giblets. My SIL forgot to take the bag of giblets out of her turkey when she baked it yesterday.
LOL I’ve done the same thing. That package of giblets creates the worst smell in the world.
THanks for the smile, Judythe. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
