A nice foliage-oriented card to go with the beautiful scenery here in New England.  A bit saccharine for my tastes, and I'm not too keen on the boy loading his gun up, so I imagined that shortly after this card was made, the following epitaph appeared on a gravestone in the pet cemetery:
Here lies the bones of our pal Rover,
His days of hunting are now over.
Lesson learned, but now it's done
Don't let Johnny hold that gun!

Hi Max, Cute card and sweet sentiment. I have one of those hunting chromes somewhere. I'll have to find it before fall is over. Thanks for your comment and Blog link
Miss You, Wish You were here. . .

How perfectly fun. lol Reminds me of my childhood. Dad taught me to shoot a 22 when I was about six years old. I'm sure that's not what this is--likely a beebee gun, and likely just out of the picture is Dad. :D lol Those were different days, for sure. Thank you for posting this wonderful postcard.
