There were more cards in this spoons series. They were probably printed around 1910, but these particular cards were not mailed until 1941. They were sent to Budd Bankson in Spokane, Washington from Blue (?) in Billings, Montana.
Here are the backs of the cards in the same order.
The message on the first one reads:
If you are becoming tired don't mention it the worst is yet to come -
Since lordosis was not in my vocabulary, I will assume it wasn't in yours either. This definition from Wikipedia may help to clarify:
The message on the second card reads:
Was Butch an iscream spoon? I think perhaps a soup spoon would be better for size at any rate.
Hmm, well I won't interpret these messages, but here's some information on the recipient, Budd Bankson:
Budd Bankson (Norman Ray Bankson) was an Army Captain in Special Services and the son of Russell Bankson, City Editor for the Spokane Daily Chronicle. His brother, Rodger, was Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Information at the Pentagon. After his career in the Army, Budd became an author. In fact, his book, I Should Live So Long, which details his time in the Army is available on Amazon. It's really inexpensive too, so if you decide to buy it and read it, be sure to send me your review!
Later, Budd also did some writing for film and television. He wrote for the TV series Rawhide and He wrote a puppet show for kids entitled "The Adventures of Sir Gazooks" and then he developed the somewhat famous character, Teddy Ruxpin.
Budd was born on September 26, 1916 and died on January 21, 1992. He is buried in Riverside National Cemetery, in Riverside, California. This picture is from their site.
