Today's postcard is going out to Young Friend, the youngest child of Friend In Need of Pseudonym. It appears to read: Hi YOung Friend, I MiSS YOU. I BiG GOing To SCHL. I EM OLDR THiG YOU. Curious Girl. Had I a scanner I could more easily capture the layout--the lines slope down on the card, and the THig is right next to SCHL.
For those used to reading more conventional spelling: the two middle sentences are "I been going to school" (after I prompted her, "Tell him something you've been doing lately.") and then "I am older than you" (after she said, "It was his birthday. Is he 5?" and we talked about how no, he is 6 now, but her birthday came first so she is older.")
What passes for news in your houses this morning?
