Never Jet Hot

Random observations from some old dude

It’s boring to stay at the Y.M.C.A.

Most of the text on the back of this postcard, presumably written from the New Bedford, MA. YMCA in February of 1913, reads;

“Did you think I wasn’t going to write- I had a cold and I thought you might get it if I wrote.”

Not sure if he was joking, or maybe just didn’t understand that his cold germs wouldn’t survive a trip to Dodgeville, MA, a distance of 40 miles. I guess it might have made his mailman sick.

Dodgeville does not appear on Google Maps, but there is a Dodgeville Country Store in Attleboro, which features “Rude and snappy ownership”, according to one reviewer. Personally, I like that better than “Friendly and Sedate ownership”, because I have things to do.
