Norwegian Farmer’s Son…December 24th

December 24th…“DID YOUR FAMILY RECEIVE CHRISTMAS GREETING CARDS IN THE MAIL?”

POEM – “Many A Year Of Christmas Cheer” by N. Elliott Noorlun

#433=Muriel n family; Christmas 1956
Our sweet mother’s cousin, Muriel (Wuerflien) Wogen, sent family photo cards, like this, for many years.  It was fun to watch her sons “grow up”.

For many a year, Christmas cheer,

Would land in our farm mail box.

#317=Virgil,Patty,Linda&Diane Bidne...Christmas
Cuteness for Christmas times four 😉

With smiles galore, And memories more,

Than could fit in fire-mantled socks.

 

#458=Marlin n Lozira Wuerflein; Christmas date unknown
Another cousin of our mother’s loved his old car.  He and his wife often would dress in period costume while driving it.  To them, it was a part of the family, so it was usually included in their yearly Christmas card photo.

We were always quite taken, And by love we were shaken,

That family and friends would remember,

To send us their love, Based on His from above,

On this holiest day in December.

Christmas on our farm was made that much sweeter by the cards we received in our mailbox by the graveled country road. ><> 😉

    1. Sweet Jacquie,
      You are one of my Three Musketeers there at school!!! Jo Moser and Laurie Ines also have been so very kind in their comments to me about my writings. Ohhh, also Nona Velligas……no comments, but she kindly clicks a LIKE on FB almost every time I post a new gentle adventure. Only one of my five children (for whom I started writing these stories for) is faithful to come by and read them. Really drags me down, at times. Even when I’ve told them all that many stories are being re-written and have more photos and graphics.
      I keep dreaming of the day, in my dream world, when some publisher will stumble across these collections and offer me a million to print them or make a movie…….heheheh!!!! Yah, I know “in your dreams” ;o)
      Hugs n Mahalos,
      Elliott
