Postcard of the day

New York, NY

Val

The local yokel taking a gander at the tall buildings

My advice: While taking a gander, make sure you don't get goosed.

Damned if I can read that signature. Any guesses?

My guess is "Don".

Jim Donahue said...

Not sure why, but I looked at the handwriting and assumed it was a woman.

Posol'stvo the Medved said...

Yeah. I could see that. Of course, maybe that's just us being all sexist and stuff. Unfortunately from context, there's no clear cut way to tell. Looking at the odd formation of the S and t in "St." indicates that the first letter in the name could be almost anything -- other than M, V, F, H, P, T, N, or S.

I can't imagine a gal calling herself a yokel. I will go out on a limb with "John".

Jim Donahue said...

The more I look at it, the more I think Pos might be right.
