I was visiting Mom and Dad on their Maryland farm last week. Mom and I cleaned the attic. Cough, cough, sneeze, sneeze. We found lots of junk and some really fun stuff. My favorite was a box of old postcards from the early 1900s. More on those in a later blog. (Are you a collector?) Here are a few other items we dug out from under the dust.
Nobody remembers where these came from, so I packed one back to Iowa in my carry-on bag.
I threw this guy in the trash, but Mom dug him out. He's coming back to haunt another New Year's Eve party.
This is one of many old Nancy Drew books in a box. Mom got the books in the 1940s. I read them all in the 1970s.
One of the old postcards reads: Sheep Fold, Druid Hill Park, Baltimore Md. The date is July 18, 1911.
