Here’s wishing all of you a safe and Happy New Year!
As I always do, I’d like to wish my older brother Ken – Lorain’s First Baby of 1958 – a Happy Birthday! That’s him below, circa 1959. The cowboy hat is appropriate, since he’s been a Texan for some time now. (I wrote about Ken’s celebrity days here, here and here.
But in the meantime, here are some wacky vintage New Year’s postcards.
