These are the types of letters I used to get from my Great Uncle Frank. I finally got around to posting them.
Anytime we went to their home or they came to ours, there was always a letter that was soon to follow.
The reason behind the 2nd one is this, I know I was in grade school and had heard a joke I can never forget, thanks to this letter...I asked my aunt and uncle why the blue elephant had 3 white shoes and 1 yellow one?
The answer was, because he forgot to lift his leg! Dumb, I know but all the adults laughed and this is the letter I got afterwards.
The 4th letter is actually written backwards, when I opened it I read it just as it is without holding it up to a mirror. I'm pretty sure my mom told them that on the way to their house, my brother asked why the word 'ambulance' was written backwards on the front of the van, to me it was logical so I said, so you can read it in the rearview mirror! I remember seeing everyone's shocked faces as they looked at each other. What? It was the only logical answer, right?!
P.S. I've had these since the 60's...
