Season's Greetings

Christmas 1941 - Detroit, Michigan
Evelyn Kerr and her first grandchild, Judy

Wishing my readers plenty of warmth this holiday season, since the whole country seems to be having an old-fashioned cold & snowy winter already.

At present, I'm packing things in anticipation of moving across the country within the next couple of months. At this point, I have no idea how I'm going to work out the details, and I don't expect to be settled and unpacked until... probably early spring? As a result, I don't expect to be blogging for awhile. I plan to resume once I'm unpacked at the new location. Please check back!

Meanwhile, if necessary, I can be reached via the Comments feature. Your comment will be delivered to me via email, which I check as often as possible.

I hope your move goes smoothly and that you're back to blogging soon. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Evelyn Yvonne Theriault said...

What a gorgeous photograph! I love the doll and in particular the now vintage doll carriage.

Yah, it looks like Judy had a pretty good Christmas, huh? A doll and a train! I wonder if she still has either of them. Thanks for stopping by, Evelyn...

And Apple, it looks like I neglected to thank you for the good wishes. Boy, I sure hope I'll be able to get my ducks in a row once I'm in a new (permanent?!) place!
