And in case you are interested, here’s the back of the card:


Dear Dad & Diane,
Donna and I are over here in Spain right now on vacation. We spent our first nite (?) in England and 2 in Sicicly. Now, we’re just relaxing. Donna is anxious to do a lot of shopping. Need to bring home a lot of gifts. Thinking of you, Spook and Donna

Thinking of YOU Spook. Thanks for the memory.
