Mischief Makers

I told one of my more “mature” friends that my next blog post would be about “little old ladies.”  Her response was something like “she’d kill me” if I were referring to her.   Needless to say, I was not.  I do value my life.  But this post does feature two postcards of mischievous mature women that are part of my postcard collection. Even though one seems “scripted,” the postcards are so similar in composition and tone that one would assume the photos were taken by the same photographer. They were not. I purchased the first postcard in New York City, intending to send it to another “mature” friend because she’s just as mischievous and cheeky as the women portrayed.  I never got around to sending it–so I guess, I’ll send her the link to this post.

I do wonder, though, if the photograph captures the women’s natural reaction to something presented to them.  I guess, I’ll never know.

The second card was sent by Postcrosser Maurice from the Netherlands.  Aren’t these women wonderfully cheeky?  My son would fit right in with them!

Maurice, a graphic designer, lives in Eindhoven in the south of the Netherlands with his wife and cat (see neat drawing below).  My good friend, Marijke, whom the first card was intended for, would love this one too.  The bonus for her is she’s also Dutch, like the sender.
