Sorry for the late Father's Day post, this weekend has been incredibly busy as one of us didn't exactly get the day off for the holiday even though I'm a father! Anyway, being said holiday you know what that means here at AEET-- samplings from my vintage greeting card collection! These are some of my faves, dating from the 1940's through the early 70's... and I have to admit, of the dads depicted on the cards I'm probably most like the hillbilly version at the bottom, or possibly the guy shooting marbles. (FYI: cards #2 and 3 both contain tiny jewels on the ties.)
I did a double take on the "On Sunday Morning" card- it looked like Hitler to me.
Haha, you're right! Heil Sleepy.
I like the first one with the sexy girl. Is the bath tub is a 3D fold-out?
>Is the bath tub is a 3D fold-out?
Yes it is, so is the nazi jumping out of bed. Card #7 has an actual kleenex inside as well.
Thanks for the comments, and Happy Father's Day to any fathers that stopped by.
HA! The last one's my favorite. Good hillbilly talk.

Thanks Colleen... looking through my card collection I actually have alot of hillbilly themed cards from a variety of holidays. That might make a good post just to mix it up through the summer since there aren't really any major holiays coming up until Oct. 31st (I don't have a single card for the 4th of July-- do they even make them?)
My dad died last November, so I was glad when all the father's day advertising was over. It was starting to feel like I was being kicked in the chest. Besides the fact that of course they always overkill with advertising every holiday.
I don't know if I've ever seen a 4th of July card. I've certainly never received one.
Sorry to hear about your dad, I lost mine back in '73 and I know how it goes about never getting easier.
Gosh, you lost your dad young. That's really sad. I became a 45 year old half-orphan and that's hard enough. It would be so much harder for a little kid to deal with. My mom's health is okay though her kidneys aren't the greatest. I'm not really looking forward to becoming the Older Generation--not yet!
