Toni Hanner "I just sat down and cried"

The preventable domestic tragedy of exploding pickles explored in this vintage card.  Thanks Toni!  Time for me to pick up the pace at returning some mail.  Lately I have been losing track and firing randomly and at will... new journal purchased and will be literally turning over a new leaf.

Heide, I didn't know that pickles were flammable!  The things you learn.  Katerina!  Good stamp-spotting.

It isn't fun discovering your canning has gone off for sure and in older days likely more of a tragedy than now.

She is not alone! Just today Atlas Obscura had a article on Emerson's Pickle factory Fire.

I think her tea is ready should she stop sobbing and start steeping.
