A Mousy Tail...



Sorry, I couldn’t resist a little play on words.

The mouse family had their little adventure back on 1906. The cards were sent to an 8 year old girl, Odette by her cousin, Ninette. The cards at entitled: The Rascal – Imprudence – Conspiracy – Evasion – Outcome, “The Cake Walk”; appropriate music for hungry mice. Debussy was yet to write his famous tune (Children’s Corner suite -1908) but “Cakewalk” music was popular in the US.

Having followed your postcard stories for a long time, I have decided to take this blog of yours out of my favorite blogs. I give it a particular dedicated spot on the blog for it to stand out. For the people to see how lovely it is. And to learn "History told with Post Cards".
