Perhaps a doctor or nurse saved it, it's good information. Always best to be giving the latest treatments to your patients. Maybe a family member was suffering from hemorrhoids? Also good to keep informed as a patient, or family or friend of a patient. As someone who is translating an article for an antique book blog, a little surprising to say the least. I've never been one for dumb humor, I know, stick in the mud right here, so I didn't really find it amusing as say a 15 year old boy might, but I did find myself with half an 'oh my' face when I saw the title. Haha, maybe I have a tiny part of me that is silly like a teenage boy!
Ahem, anyway, here is your friendly reminder to get regular check ups, eat right, and exercise. I can totally turn this into a plug for being healthy!

One interesting thing about this picture is that it's actually a postcard! Completely blank on the back, no writing, no year, no studio who created it, no names of the children, nothing. Maybe this is the proverbial Facebook wall of the day? Hey, here are our cute kids in their yearly picture, we made them into postcards so we could send them to all of the friends and relatives! That's probably a stretch of my ever active imagination. Whomever these two are, they are adorable. Maybe being adorable is enough to get your picture put on a postcard?

I adore finding hand drawn pictures in my books. How old do you suppose this artist was? Part of me says 9 year old boy, but wouldn't it be awesome to find out that father of that boy actually drew this while on some boring work call or something. Growing up shouldn't mean we stop doodling tanks when the urge grabs us.

I have posted a few times about Kaj Munk, he is one of the people I most want to meet in the next life. So fascinating! And I typed that making the squint eyes, head nod, so fascinating face. So you you know how much I like this guy. If you don't know of him, check out my other posts or try your best at Google, but I warn you, not nearly enough information on Mr. Munk out there. I know, it's brutal.

You can see there is a note written on the back, of which I have about as much chance of deciphering as I do learning to lip read. Could happen, but with far more effort than I am ready to exert myself with at this time. I do know a few words of Danish, of course, but I'm having one of those 'ooh, look at the pretty picture' kind of night, not a 'I want to learn everything right now' kind of night. I know you know what I mean, even if you don't admit it. It's alright. I never judge.
