Behind The Screen
Beauty is where you find it. As I have moved into the
golden years, I have found beauty in the grandeur and wide skies of the West,
the innocence and sparkle of grandchildren, and most of all, in the devotion of
a loving wife. But many years ago, I also found it on a closet shelf
as I rummaged through Mother's things after her death. It was obvious that
Rebecca Brackin's post card collection was special.
My mother and her sister, Mildred, had known their little
cousin, Reba, before
they were teenagers, and they were among those who sent her the many
cards she collected. But by the time I came on the scene, Reba was long
gone and her mother, Florrie, was a pathetic, shriveled old widow who lived alone with her
It has been my pleasure to post all of Reba's post card
collection here on the internet for everyone to view
and enjoy, just as Reba and her mother would have wished.
