A Moth Leads an Awful Life

1943_1231

I found this card at my last meeting, and I originally passed it over. The front just shows a barge entering the Memphis Terminals in Memphis, Tennessee. But then I read the message on the back:

“And then there was the mother flea who was crying because her son was going to the dogs…… A moth leads an awful life. He spends the summer in a fur coat + the winter in a bathing suit.”

No hi, how’s it going, nothing! I thought the moth joke was pretty clever. A sailor mailed this card to his friend in Newark, NJ from the naval hospital in Memphis.
