Having a good time and hope you are too. Went to Cypress Gardens yesterday. We are flying back home on the sixteenth.

Had a letter from Anna ___ telling us that Mr. ___’s died and Evie ___ was in the hospital for two weeks due to a heart attack. Stewie’s sister has been helping.

Wish we could see you while we are down here. Sure did enjoy your visit in Behtlehem.

Love from both — Mary Gene and George

We don’t know if Mary Gene or George wrote this. We assume it was whichever one can’t stop five minutes to enjoy themselves without gossiping and probably talks about other peoples’ business in their sleep.

Three wonderful days at Disney World. Simply fantastiing one attraction out shines the other. Hope you both are well. Will write later. Emma & Gaston

We wonder which attraction they thought outshined what other attraction? We’re guessing “Space Mountain” and “Stomach ache from too many churros before Space Mountain.”

Dear Mr. & Mrs. ____ & Dennis.

I am having a terrific time at Disney World


Apparently, Sauna was startled by these giant animals just as he was writing his salutation.

Dear Janet,

Had a good trip down. Mother’s burn is improving. Dad & Mom were good travelers.

We made 584 miles the first day. Spent the night in a motel in Clinton, Tenn. Last night we stayed with Cousin Ruth in Apaplea, about 25 miles from Disneyworld.

Love Mickey.

Hope you are well. Have a good summer.

Are they fleeing to Florida because someone set Mother on fire? It’s really hard to tell. It’s also hard to tell if they ever made it to Disney World. At least they got close enough to buy a postcard.

I’m really having a great time. I love Florida! especially Disney World. Tomorrow Lea & I are going to the beach. Just what I need, I’m already burnt to a crisp! See ya soon. Love Bird.

“Especially” isn’t even a word. Sorry, Bird, but you fail vacation.

Dear Aunt Mary

We all fine. Are having a nice time. Arrived safe. Nathan really enjoyed Disney World.

Love Nancy, Al, Nathan, (?)

You can tell that someone has been having a little too much vacation enjoyment when they can’t form complete sentences or remember exactly who they are traveling with.

Dear Grammie

Hi, I’m in Disney World Florida. what a beautiful state! Hot, sunny and loads of orange trees. It was all absolutely beautiful. Out of room.

All my love

Many people traveling to Disney World during the summer would agree with Dick — the place is beautiful but, due to crowding, often out of room.

Dear Berm & Danny

Everything here is just beautiful. How are things back home. Miss you. Danny was in the pool today but the water was cold.

See you soon
Amy & Daney

Many people would not describe an old, gothic mansion overwhelmed by the macabre machinations of the dead as beautiful. Clearly Berm and Danny have exceptional taste.
