Yep. I’m still sorting through all the stuff I scanned while visiting my grandmother a few weeks ago. I happened across this scanned postcard that my grandmother sent to her mother-in-law (my great grandmother, Mary Alice Schneider) while the couple were honeymooning at Lake Okoboji, Iowa, in August 1944. Yes, I had already forgotten about it.
I need to get the story behind my grandfather’s apparent foot injury and why my grandmother wouldn’t go in the water. Guess that’s something else for the to-do list!
A recent photo (2005-ish) of Lake Okoboji can be found here. It’s a little scary how similar the view is to the postcard above.
