Treasure Chest Thursday – Postcards from Great-Grandma

I have a few postcards that my Great-Grandma Mae Johnson wrote to my mother during the winter of 1959 when Mae and her husband Alfred traveled to Florida for their annual trip.  These are truly a treasure to me.  I never knew Mae and never heard her voice, but reading these postcards helps me to hear her.  I will post one a week for the next several weeks on Treasure Chest Thursday.
