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.

READ  Fisherman math. It doesn't add up!

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.
