A Bit O'Blarney



St. Patrick's Day will soon be here.
I'll be having corned beef and cabbage in honor of St. Pat and Mr. Dragon.

Just what is blarney???
How about smooth, flattering talk?
(I can just hear the Irish accent ... can't you?!)

or
Deceptive nonsense.

I think a little of both is definitely in order!




I can imagine there is a Bit O' the Blarney going on with this young man and woman.




The back of the postcard is dated March 16, 1909 and reads:
To my Star In the East I
write these lines,
For her heart is true to me
And from her soul a bright light shines
To guide and strengthen me.

I always wonder about the people involved with the postcards.
What's the story behind the message and who sent it to Ted Dixon, Esq?

Thank you Beth!


Wishing you well and a JOY filled weekend.

Sweet card. Happy PFF.

I'm guessing the cabbage combines with mashed potato to make colcannon to be truly Irish. Nice card, I have 'dear Irish memories' from holidays there.

Old postcards, especially ones with writing on the back, are so interesting. You can sure see how much our language has changed over time!

I always thought blarney was a nice way of saying some one was pulling the wool over your eyes. Then of course there is the blarney stone and a whole lot of kissing going on there...

Thats a great postcard and it even has a green stamp.

I'm trying to work out why a card addressed to a man would be saying "her heart is true to me". There may be a lot more to this than meets the eye....

An early St Pat's greeting to you. Love the old postcard.
