Postcard Friendship Friday

Many of the old pictures of my mother's family when she was a young woman were taken in Glen Oak Park in Peoria, Illinois.  It seems like many people dressed in their "Sunday best" and spent an afternoon in the park.  When I was a little girl, I can remember my grandmother walking me over there and I think the building in this card was by that time a building that housed birds.  I have memories of a mynah bird saying "5 o'clock".  The message on this card is strange and I think it is  connected to..................+

this one which also has a message about chickens.  Maybe you can figure it out!  Nice pictures of Glen Oak Park, though.    Many thanks to Beth at  for again hosting and Happy PFF to all.  (Click to enlarge)


  1. I love the cards and the messages are even better. It seems the second was written at 4:30 am. I can't make it all out but I think it starts with "I rec'd the chickens in crowing condition". Maybe the writer had a bad night, thanks to the chickens. :)

  2. Are they really chickens? Sounds like sisterly code words to me.

  3. It wouldn't surprise me if they really were about flesh and blood chickens.
