Omgood gosh ! LOL, that’s one angry owl 😀 Then you found yourself a post mark from flippin’ Three Hills, Alberta !! That’s a throw back to stories my dads would tell. xK
haha..My mother, bless her, collected post marks and this one felt right for my fed up little owl. Post Marks are fascinating. They give the date, place, year and time…I have one that reads Nanaimo BC Dec.24, 1944, 2:15 pm…it makes you wonder…Christmas Eve during wartime…
I wonder if that letter was to a loved one in action? A wish to come home safely, to a son, husband, brother? I don’t think we can even imagine that kind of longing. What a lovely little piece of history to collect. xK
I know, I am always imagining the back stories of the ephemera.
