Christmas cheer

I wonder what the Thorpes' reaction was to this card from Laura Woods. For one thing, the color is out of sync with the image, so it's not very pretty. For another, the message is a bit cranky: Ma is fussing, Pa is cussing, and I'm the one who has to send the cards out. Good grief! The paper peeking out at the bottom is part of the deteriorated scrapbook page. I didn't soak the cards off, the way the experts do -- I would've been too nervous for that. Chester Thorpe used rubber cement, and that held on pretty good even with the paper going brittle and brown. I simply lifted off what I could without doing too much damage.
