Cards We Got Cards

If you are old young enough to remember the Perry Como Show * from years ago, there was a segment of the show with the intro:

Letters, we get letters, We get stacks an' stacks of letters . . .

Dear Perry, would you be so kind, to fill a request, And sing the song I like best ?

OK, we won’t sing for you, believe me it would not be melodious. But we do want to THANK folks for the stack of cards, photos and letters we received at Christmas.

The Christmas letters were enclosed in cards. These samplesXmas cards (24) below are purposely out of focus to protect the guilty, whoops senders). One sender described their dog’s medical problems this past year — in great detail too, more then we needed (or wanted) to know. Needless to say, it was a very unusual holiday message. Other letters were more traditional in describing the accomplishments of family members over the past 12 months.

Mostly we got cards from family, friends, and many fellow bloggers. Some were in the form of a photo card . . .

Some featured family photos. Others included holiday favorites — Santa, trains and penguins, snowmen . . .

The cards are all displayed in our living room, where we enjoy looking at them daily. THANKS to everyone who took the time to write and send us a holiday greeting or photo. Grenville and I appreciated and enjoyed your holiday wishes and send our best to ALL of you in return.

Happy New Year !

* The Perry Como Show was a musical/variety show that aired 117 episodes from 1950-1966. It began as a 30-minute program, later expanded to 60 minutes. The show featured performances by the Mitchell Ayres Orchestra and the Ray Charles Singers. It was later retitled Perry Como’s Kraft Music Hall.

Don't unplug your hub. said...

Happy New Year to you both. I remember Perry Como. We must have had the programme over here. This would have been in the days when we only had one channel. How did we manage? What am I saying? I don't have a TV at all just now.

We watched The Perry Como Show in England. He was one of my parents favorites. I enjoyed all the e-cards very much but I must say, you just can't beat getting a card via the mailman. Thank you again for yours. Happy New Year to you both!

I vaguely remember that show. I don't remember much about it, though. Your cards are lovely.

If you ever get a chance, watch the movie, "Blast From The Past". It's very funny, and I think one of the songs is by Perry Como.
I can just remember Perry Como, not that I am too young, I think my parents must have liked something else on another channel!
HA!

Lots of fine cards there!

Perry Como never got especially popular here, only in my home :-)

Have a great end of this year!
Christer.
