This lovely vintage postcard was mailed from Hollywood Florida on February 13, but the year is unintelligible. It was mailed using a gray 5 cent Washington stamp (issued 1962) to Mrs. L.E. Peck, 212 N 8th St. Lansing, Michigan. It reads:
2/13 Hi, we are back to Hollywood again. Love it for 4 weeks. All our pals here too & weather lovely. Good food as we have dinners out. I’ll weigh a ton when we get back March 8th. We have a rental T-Bird convertible – Big Stuff – Bill feels like a teenager again – Ha! Love Kay & Bill.
I love Kay’s message, and think I would enjoy having coffee with her. She seems to have a good sense of humor.
We’ve featured Tropical Acres before here and here (Pompano Beach location). The location from our postcard today, Dania, is still open for business! You should totally check it out if you’re in the area. Urban Spoon reviews are fantastic.
